For those of you out there interested in making your own beer, it may not be as complicated or as expensive as you think.
There is a company called Sabco that makes and sells small brewery kits, beer chillers, and kegs for storage. The Brewery kit costs about $5,000 dollars which isn’t bad for a solid brewing system.
There is also a website called beersmith.com that is designed for homebrewers. They have a blog that lists tips for crafting your own brew. On their main page they sell software that gives you step by step instructions on how to make your own beer. They have a free trial you can download or you can buy the software outright for $19.95.
And one last site that will be helpful to people looking to brew their own beer is BrewWiki. BrewWiki is an online encyclopedia for craft brewers. It is user generated so not everything on the website, like Wikipedia, can be taken as cold hard facts, but it can be very helpful for answers to questions or ideas for what a person might want to do with their beer.
