For most people, purchasing a new top of the line home brewing system is expensive and there are plenty of ways to brew beer without having to spend that much. There are even some ways you can brew your favorite home made beer at home for very little money at all.
One great place to start brewing beer is with the use of a home brew kit. These kits have everything you need to get started brewing beer, including all of the supplies you will need, such as grains, hops, water and a bottle of yeast. All of these items are available from most any hardware store or home brewing supply shop.
Before you purchase any of these products, it is a good idea to check with your state's liquor code to make sure that you are not breaking any laws by using the beer you brew. You may find that they will allow you to make one batch of beer per day, but if you do use more than one it could be considered a public house and you will be fined and/or have your liquor license revoked. This is why it is important to check and see what the law in your state allows you to do before buying a brewing system.
If you are not sure how much money you can spend on your beer brewing equipment, you can buy used beer brewing supplies at local yard sales or auctions. This way you will not have to pay retail prices and you can get a good deal. You should only buy used beer brewing supplies that you are confident in.
After you have purchased your equipment, you should begin brewing beer. Once you have a good feel for how it all works, you can experiment with different types of recipes and flavors of beer. Most brewers find that the key to making a good home brewed beer is to brew a small batch first so that you are comfortable using it and know how to brew beer without any issues. Once you have built up a good amount of confidence you can brew larger batches of beer, which allows you to experiment with many different styles without having to change the recipe.
Once you are able to brew a decent beer, you should always make sure that you are keeping the beer within the system properly. The reason for this is that you don't want to contaminate other people's beer and you do not want any of the beer left over in your home brewing system to taste bad. This is why it is important to clean the system once you are done using it and have no leftover beer left over.
