Beer Making Kits

I was reading the newspaper today and I saw an ad for Beer Kits from one of those Beer/Wine Kit making stores...and I thought.. "wait a second...I drink a lot of beer....I should make some fucking beer!!" The moment was compared to a black criminal finding Islam.

Anyway, I know some of you have make beer before(trendkill..but he's dead or something?)..my questions are is it hard to make? I heard it takes 7-10 days...and possibly some kits are easier matainence than others..does it smell like shit?(I live in an apartment..)..anyway, can someone give me the lowdown. Cheers!



EDIT - I'd be looking to make Pale Ale, because it's my favorite, but would be willing to try others..just not shitty black crap and the like.

One step ahead of you

I did it once, made like five gallons of it, and it tasted awful. I forget the brand it was...

Like you're going to wait that many days for it to finish brewing? riiiiight. Think about how much beer you could buy for the same price already made and aged. That's probably the step that's omitted that makes it taste better although most beers taste like crap to me anyways except for maybe Heinekens, but I don't drink beer anyways.

I tried making homemade wine once from grapes I'd grown. All I had was a bumper crop of fruit flies in my kitchen. My old Italian wine making friend told me that I was doing the right things, but I'd already pitched the stuff. I got tired of swatting.

AHHH! THE BALL'S IN MY COURT NOW!

Three things affect the quality of the beer you make:

1) Hygiene
2) The quality of the kit you buy
3) Hygiene again

The equipment you use to make the beer isn't particularly important... Hell, you could use a pig's intestine sewn shut as long as it was sterile inside. You'll need a fermenter, an airlock, a big fuckin' spoon, a hydrometer and a lot of different powders.

What makes it awesome: You have to be ABSOLUTELY ANAL about hygiene brewing. Things that go in the fermenter or bottles must NOT touch the ground or anything else. It can be a very finnicky process. Also, you have to buy good quality kits (good malt, good hops, good yeast) or the beer will taste like you're sucking on Walpurgis's infected nipples.

If you've got the patience, it's a VERY cheap way to get beer - that is, once you've got the equipment. A good home brewing store with a big fat homebrewing ninja man in it is your best asset as far as that goes. I used to brew a lot until I realised that making 25L of beer a week (I had three fermenters) was absolutely no good for my mental health.

hahahaha..you might as well make vodka out of bumble bees.


Thanks for the insights guys, especially FBS..haha, I can see why 25 litres a week wasn't good for your mental health...so does this shit smell? Is it very difficult to make? Does it go bad? Is it pricy? Should I get a shitty all in one kit before I expand?

Making hard booz is a different story. Make methyl instead of ethyl alcohol and you can get sick, blind and/or died.

Now THIS is a freakish coincidence. I was JUST contemplating making a thread about how to make beer on the way home from work, as I am sick of not drinking beer because I live in shitty America.

One of my friends tried making beer once.

Ingredient list:
1 empty Coke bottle
Yeast
Sugar
Water

Leave next to the heater for 3 weeks.

Enjoy!

(no, it didnt work)
