Time-poor beer geek

We get that.
But you’re busy. And you can’t brew. This makes you sad.
We want you to be happy. And make great beer. There are tricks, tips and techniques to make truly awesome homebrew with a minimum investment in time and effort.
Happy with your brewing? Maybe even recognized in a few competitions?
That’s awesome – you can help other brewers make great beer too. Share your experience on our blog. You might even pick up a few tips too.
Want to make really, really cheap beer and lots of it?
Perhaps this isn’t for you…
While we love that homebrew is a fraction of the cost of buying it, you also need to spend a few extra dollars for awesome beer.
Far too many times we’re heard of brewers using a cheap kit, a couple of pounds of household sugar and corner cutting to make beer. The results are never impressive and give homebrew a bad name.
This is not the place for penny pinching. For an extra ten or fifteen dollars, you can make beer you are proud to share.
Have quality as the end goal, not cheap beer.
