    Brooklyn ‘Brewminaries’ Have Homebrewing Down to a Science

    Rachel Zeiss’s Ditmas Park kitchen is positively crammed with equipment. A 10-gallon stainless steel pot sits on the stove, almost touching the underside of the microwave; that, in turn, is hooked up to another large pot on the floor, via a snaking apparatus of tubing I keep losing track of.

    Get Hooked on Homebrewing With These Three Easy Beer Styles

    First brews can be exhilarating: You’re about to make alcohol! The same stuff you’d happily pay for at the bar, you’re about to make in your kitchen, like a Prohibition-fighting, bathtub-brewing speakeasy owner. Brewing is fun, but it’s also work. It involves heavy lifting, temperature...

    Ask the Experts: Advice on Filtering for Homebrewing

    I’m considering purchasing some kind of filter system for my beer. What type of filter should I use, and how is filtering best done? Often you can achieve mature, clear beer without filtering if you have the time available to let natural processes work. However, in a commercial environment...

    Smarter beer: When old school craft brewing meets industry 4.0 AI

    The co-founders of Sugar Creek Brewing Company had a foam problem. Founders Joe Vogelbacher and Eric Flanigan realized some bottles on their line were being filled with more foam than others and had to be pulled off the line. It's one of the little manufacturing foibles anyone who runs a factory...

    Why honey beers are misunderstood

    Your lawn may still be covered in snow, your dog’s forgotten tennis balls buried in backyard permafrost. But the calendar says it’s spring, and so do beer releases. Beers brewed with honey are a perennial entry on warm-weather lineups, with styles ranging from blondes to brown ales to double...

    Mr. Beer kits

    I started off with one many, many moons ago. It was ok, nothing special. A basic brew kit from a place like midwest may cost a little more but would get more use out if it I think.
