These pages provide an introduction to why you might wish to brew beer at home and how you would go about it. "Why brew at home?" and "How good is it?" are there for those whose stomachs still turn at awful memories of 'homebrew' in their youth. Home brewers today produce beers that would not be out of place in a Good Beer Guide pub.

The obvious things to do are:

  • Have a go!
  • Read a good book
  • Find a good shop and ask for advice
  • Join a club
  • Go on an introductory course
  • Brew with another home brewer
  • Take advice on the Internet
