Brewing beer at home - do the "home brew kits" work (Mr. Beer)?
    #4305841 - 06/17/05 12:17 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I think it would be pretty cool to brew my own beer, and get creative with it. I'd love to be able to customize my own beer and create something unique. Only question is, do these types of kits work well? Seems like $40 to brew beer is awful cheap considering how expensive professional brewing equpiment must cost.


Anyone have experience doing it?

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

I dunno, but I always wanted to get a home beer making kit when I was about 14 years old, it sounded awesome! because i got drunk a few times, and I thought getting drunk was 'da bomb'..but that was a few years before I did cannabis and other psychedelics..2 years later I discovered ganja and LSD..and I used to be a nice little "mormon" boy at one time..:lol:...I am still a nice guy...but religon...what a joke..

It's a not so well known fact that cannabis & hops are very closely related from a botanical point of view (I forget where the connection begins). I, like many other potheads, would love to make a cannabis beer, as much of a waste of marijuana it would be.

I heard that too, I am just kidding, I would love to make my own brew...it would be my exuse for my hiding of my growing of ganja and shrooms...I would show off my home brewing kit to everyone..they would know I used weed and sometimes shrooms..but the home brewing kit would be someway of a distraction to the fact i would be growing shrooms and ganja...at the same time I love beer!! I am drinking some now..

They do work...but it's the same thing with mushrooms...if you take the time to learn what you are doing. you do not need any kits and can do it for dirt cheap.

I'd rather grow shrooms, because it is too easy to buy alcohol..well in the USA it is hard to buy psychedelic..shrooms at the store...

yeah i brew at home its unreal got a fridge that can hold 2 kegs at a time with tap and trip tray on the door. 6 fermenters, 4 carbouys.

the best i have brewed from a kit brand morgan, you add extra hops and specialised sugars get real close to the real beer brands.

tis very rewarding brewing your own happy juice. Those kits suck though, goto a local homebrew shop in your area and they'll show you to the door. Beer bottles should never be plastic. To really brew your own get the grains, make your wort and never do less that 5 gallons.

Well it sounds like it would be worth the time & effort. Perhaps I'll look into it when I have the money to invest in it. It would certianly be a good way to learn more about beer and how each ingrediant effects the flavor.

A friend from HS parents used to brew their own beer. It was actually VERY good stuff. :smile: You should really look into it if you really want to do it. You can tweak with your recipes and come out with some good tasting shit that's slightly different every time.

Read, any questions, PM me. If you are buying a "kit" that isn't 200$+, it won't work.

Cannabis and Hops are both members of the family Cannabaceae or the hemp family. Cannabis is the namesake of its own genera, as is well known, Humulus is the latin genera for hops.Put your nose up to some fine-quality fresh Hallertau or Northern Brewer hops and you'll think you have yourself hip deep in the finest quality dank you ever smelled.

If you get a kit, get a kit from a local homebrew shop or www.northernbrewer.com

They know their shit, some of those fly-by-night net shops will rip you off with poor quality shit, homebrew is no different.

I brewed some a year ago, it's a right hassle, especially how much cleaning/ sterilisation of equipment you have to do. I drank two bottles of it, pretty bad, the rest is still in the garage.

Unless you're really broke/ bored, I wouldn't bother.

I've smoked hops and brewed them into tea. Its great as a nighttime tea.

In terms of raw materials, homebrew costs about $40 for a five gallon batch or about $8 a gallon. Even if you regularly drink cheap crappy mass produced beer, its a steal. Although, if you can't appreciate good beer, I wouldn't bother. My only complaint are the yeasty taste to it, since homebrew is naturally carbonated by the yeast and is unfilitered. But I have a feeling that my most recent brew is yeasty because I used dry yeast. Liquid yeast starters like Wyeast actually have a lineage behind them, they are a "strain" not unlike strains of Ps. cubensis. The strains impart a certain flavor to the brew.

Dont get a cheap kit, get a kit from Northernbrewer with a yeast starter.


Shanti, I have to disagree with you, you can make less than five gallons. In a few weeks here, I am going to start three new recipes totaling 13.5 gallons. A five gallon Cream Ale, five gallons of Belgian Wit and 3 and half gallons of Barley Wine. The recipe was originally for five, but I decided to cut it back for a higher gravity!
