Those of you who have experienced rudimentary home-brew, perhaps performed by college students interested in cheap alcohol, rather than quality beer, might shudder at the thought of this, but let me assure you; it is possible to produce quality craft beers at home.

Brewing at home can range from simple malt extract kit beers, to more complex, but ultimately more rewarding, all grain beers. It's like most things in life, the more you put into it, the more you get out, but with a little effort, you can enjoy a unique quality beer, which you have made with your own hands, at a fraction of what you would pay for it in a pub or shop.
