Starting Your Own Micro Home Brewing

Jun 10, 2008
When you are producing less than one million hectoliters of beer each year then you are considered a micro brewery in the United States, when you reside in Canada however you should not be making more than 300.000 hectoliters per year. It still is more than you are allowed for private use, having a micro brewery can be a wonderful way of living. Specially when you enjoy brewing beer and you wouldn't mind being a bit more commercial then it's perfect for you.

Always sanitize

When you want to get started with your micro home brewing you should first start by sanitizing all the equipment that you are going to use in the brewing process. After the sanitizing you should give everything a good rinse to be sure that no sanitizer is left in the system. If there is any sanitizer left then this could kill the yeast and this on it's turn will result in a poor tasting and flat beer.

Cooking and stirring

The first thing that has to be done when you are micro home brewing is to start the cooking process. Put about 2 gallons of water in the pot and bring it to a boil and when it is boiling you add the malt syrup. Now we need to start stirring this mixture can dissolve in the boiling water but be careful now and make sure that the pot does not boil over because when that happens we could lose ingredients so always keep a close eye on the pot while you stir it.

The next steps

We need to do a lot of other steps to complete the brewing process. The worth, which is the name of the mixture we created should be left alone to cool after this we need to siphon it, bottle it etc. etc. You will find out that there are many methods you can follow when you start micro home brewing. It is probably best to do a lot of testing so your beer will have a distinctive taste to it that will be your signature.

Do not fear, help is near

If you, at some point do not know how to tackle a certain problem you can always ask one of the many microbreweries that are out there, maybe give a few of them a visit to introduce yourself. If you don't know any in your region then get online and start looking nearby breweries with an online search.

If you have always liked brewing you own beer for private use and really would like to make a small living out of it then give micro home brewing a try. It will not be a large investment and you would be doing something that, because it is your hobby, will not have a high learning curve.

Keep in mind that it should be something you enjoy doing. It will reflect in the taste of the beer and if the taste is good then half of the task is done.
