Homebrewing Your own Beer! - ~Mystery~ - 12-13-2009 08:16 PM

Overview: Ok so most of us know that in the US there is this dumb law that prevents minors and pretty much everyone under the age of 21 (unless you're a marine) from directly purchasing beer. Which by the way should be protested and questioned at every available opportunity.

Solution Guess what, you can legally acquire GREAT beer without getting other people involved or asking others to buy it for you. Commercial beer tastes pretty meh compared to the alternative I'm about to suggest.

LEGALLY you can purchase all the ingredients necessary to make your own home brew

Ingredients For your first batch you'll need grains or sugar. You can can mix and match anything sweet. Make sure you use corn sugar if your using sugar directly. ( ideally the grains of choice)
-Barley
-Oats
-Wheat
-rye
+sugar if you want


The next item you can legally purchase for your beer are the hops
,hops is a flower related to the hemp leaf which helps flavours the beer.

+hops

The last but most important ingredient are the single celled organisms, the yeast. These little critters will turn most of that sugar into alcohol and carbonate.

+yeast

Equipment:
StovePot: For boiling wort in hot water (Sugar based grains).

Non Wood Spatula; For Stirring the ingredients

Chlorine/Bleach: Sanitize everything the beer touches (bucket pot spatula, siphon)

Bucket with an airlock: This is where you will store the beer (1 week) to allow for fermentation. The airlock is to allow carbon dioxide to escape so the beer doesn't pop open.

Siphon for tranfering the beer from bucket to keg or bottles.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Instructions

~Sanitize cooking pot with bleach, Rinse
~ Fill With Water (Spring, Tap Mountain Dew Any will do)
~ Bring water to a near boil and Add malt extract, Grains and/or Sugar,honey, ect
~ Stir and add hops
~ Sanitize Airlock Bucket/or Carboy
~Cool pot back to 68-75 degrees
~ Pour pot contents into the bucket/carboy
~ Add water if you wish and finally yeast to the bucket
~Stir and cover tightly
~set up airlock
~1 week Later~
~Sanitize the keg/bottles
~Sanitize the Siphon
~Bottle the beer or Keg the beer
~Let sit for another week

~Ready to drink Enjoy

What does it look like??

Should this really be in this forum?


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - ~Mystery~ - 12-13-2009 09:34 PM

Yea in the cooking section


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - aaaaaaasd - 12-13-2009 10:01 PM

No, it should instead be in the "MYSTERY IS A TWAT" section.

Guess what?

Beer is pretty nasty.

Sir, I beg to differ.

It's lovely when you've had too many to disregard the taste.

That is also when every woman in the bar turn in to super models correct?


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - returnal - 12-14-2009 06:42 AM

Homebrew games, not beer.


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - FindTheLight - 12-14-2009 07:02 AM

I think it's a great idea. I can't believe many of you guys don't like it.

It's just hard to keep secret from the parents! You need a big house.

In america do you smoke weed rather than drink?


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - random_name - 12-14-2009 07:06 AM

I do not mind beer, however i happen to prefer anything except baileys to beer.

This. I don't know why so many disagree. Because beer is bad for you? To an extent.

I;d definitely drink than smoke. Smoking is a stupid idea, it fucks up your lungs.

This.

Personally, I don't like beer. I've never had it though, but I've had barley soup, which is basically non-alcoholic beer, and I've had beer-bread, they're nasty.

Come on guys, if this thread were made by anyone other than Mystery (or TA) You would be worshiping the thread right now, don't deny it.

I thought it was illegal to make your own beer without a license or something?

Only if you supply or sell it would you need a license.


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - CrayolaColours - 12-14-2009 11:40 AM

Illegal? Wut? Well, that's true for pretty much all food businesses, isn't it?


Re: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - Alucard483 - 12-15-2009 04:40 AM

This is WAY more complicated than it sounds. Plus it belongs on the food section.

BLASPHEMER! Beer is fucking amazing.

Spot-ify Wrote:It's lovely when you've had too many to disregard the taste.
Then you need to invest in some GOOD beer. Like Smithwicks, Leinenkugle or American Ale. Its fucking delicious.

And if you pour the beer into your eyes you can change your eye color.
Don't drink mass produced beer. It's a conspiracy backed by those responsible for 9/11 and cordless phones... Never trust a phone that doesn't have a cord.

lol. I figured. Thought it was odd that Mystery made a post. Didn't bother to check though. Damn spambots... Laugh


RE: Homebrewing Your own Beer! - aCol - 01-17-2012 11:44 PM

Beer's tasty. Depends on your taste. Be sure to keep EVERYTHING STERILE when brewing beer, else you will get vinegar. And you do not want vinegar, most of the time.
