It has been just over a year since I started Home Brew Answers. The whole idea behind it was to share all my experiences of brewing beer. The site has now grown to see a few thousand visitors a week so I wanted to create something to give back to all of you who take the time to read the articles each week.
Home Brew Answers Book
I have compiled the most viewed and comprehensive guides here and added a little more content to create a Kindle book which is available through Amazon. As you are reading this here I want to give it to you for free.
For the next 5 days, up to and including Christmas day, the book will be free to download to your kindle, tablet, phone or computer as a thank you for following along with me as I share my home brewing journey.
The book is called: Home Brew Answers: A Foundation In Making Beer From Beginner To Advanced.
Please go and download it whilst it is free, tell your friends and, if you want, drop a review on Amazon. After 5 days I cannot offer the book for free anymore so go and get it now. The price will go up as £3.40 which is the price of a pint at my local pub.
Thanks for reading, here is an introduction to the book to get you started.
There are so many craft breweries in the UK, it seems there is a new one opening every week. The sheer variety of beers available to the consumer has never been better. Why then would you want to brew your own beer?
It’s not an easy question to answer. You really must give brewing a go before you realise just how compelling it can be. I know from personal experience that brewing beer can become an obsession. I started making beer when I was around 19 years old and now I’m 30, ever since that very first batch I’ve been hooked. Along the way, I have documented my journey right here.
I’ve brewed more styles of beer than I can name off the top of my head and have never stopped learning with each batch. The obsession that started me brewing led to me transferring a hobby into a career. I now brew professionally but still find the time to knock up a beer that’s a little more unique when I am brewing at home.
Brewing beer for yourself gives you no restrictions. Whatever you feel like can go into the recipe, you want it to be strong and high in alcohol then go ahead, there are no taxes to pay. Maybe you want to add fruit or a flavouring like vanilla, you must only please yourself not hundreds of thirsty customers.
I wrote this book to help you get started. To give you a solid foundation in what goes into beer, the processes involved and to get your first beer made. This book isn’t full of beer recipes, although there are a few. What it is full of though, is the what’s, why’s and how’s of making beer.
After reading this book you should have a thorough understanding of brewing to build from. You’ll find just like me, you never stop learning something new.
If you have any questions about the book or home brewing in general please contact me here. Have a Merry Christmas!
