A lot of people like to try their own brewing when it comes to beer, because, well why not?
Homebrewing however was not always legal. Once upon a time, long ago in the year of 1979 the president decided to pass a bill allowing home beers. This changed the beer industry drastically. Now home brewing is very popular and it has really made an impact in the craft beer world. A lot of people who started to home brew and get experience went on to start their own businesses and become brewers of very well known breweries.
I decided to talk to someone I know that wanted to try this home brewing process so I could get to know a little bit more about it so I hope you enjoy and get some tips from it!
So as talked about in this interview you will need a starter kit, these range from $50 to $500. This one below is a basic one gallon small batch kit and it goes for 49.99 at this website.
Here is one more that is a little bit more in depth and for more experienced brewers, you will also be able to make more with this kit. This one is a little bit more expensive and is between $109 and $129.
