Under each method discussed… I will put a link to more in-depth articles and videos where you can go to learn more about making beer in that manner.


Method #1) The Can of Goo

The first stage of learning how to make beer would be simply using what I refer to as the good ol’can of goo. How to make beer with mr beer kit

We all typically start here, we get the brilliant idea to start making beer at home and run out and buy one of those cans of goo.

This method makes just OK beer…  but it is invaluable when it comes to teaching you the how to make beer process!

The following is a link of me brewing a Can of Goo with what I refer to as a Twist:

Method #2) Adding “Stuff” to the Goo

The 2nd stage most homebrewers take when learning how to make beer, is adding stuff to the can of goo.

The “Stuff” I am referring to is called Adjuncts!

My definition of Adjuncts is: “The shite you add to a can of goo to improve your brew”!

Most people start out by adding some Dextrose, Dry Malt Extract or Liquid Malt Extract.

This improves on the Can of goo only beer.  And makes OK beer.

Method #3) Specialty Grains & Hops

The 3rd stage of learning how to make beer would be to start using specialty grains. How to make beer with specialty grains

This is where most homebrewers step away from the can of goo and start learning how to make beer at home without a kit.

The ingredients would call for Dry Malt extract, maybe some liquid malt extract, Specialty Grains and Hops.

Now you have reached a point where the beer you are making tastes Good!

Method #4) All Grain Brewing Baby!!

The next step for most people is learning how to make beer from scratch. How to Make Beer

AKA All Grain brewing!

This is where you are not using anything other then Grains, and hops.

No more cans of goo or dry malt or liquid malt extract (unless you wish to).

This stage is where all homebrewers wish to get to.

All of the stages are important in your education process and they all teach you how to make beer, so have patience… learn them all… and when you get to this stage the beer will start to become Great!!
