Getting started with home brew beer

Tags: homebrew

Basic kit that you need

Total £57.00 for bottling, £40.00 for barreling.

Consumables for your first brew


So, to brew your first batch of beer and bottle it will cost you approximately £70.00. This works out at £1.75 a pint. Your next batch will cost you £13.00, which is £0.32 per pint.

I would suggest that you start with bottling, especially if you have a dishwasher. A dishwasher simplifies the sanitising of the bottles, and a barrel of beer will go flat if you don't drink it quickly (although you can buy CO2 canisters to keep the condition).
