Beer is the first alcoholic beverage known to human civilization. It is a drink that has perhaps played an important role in the evolution of mankind. In fact, many believe that beer is the reason why humans started to grow barley around 9000 BC. In short, humans started to make beer long before they started to make bread for food! Brewing your own beer is a fun and delicious hobby that you can share with your friends and family and this book will teach you all you need to know to make your first batch of beer! Enjoy!
A true and serious beer drinker has specific ideas of what they want in their beer. This is a reason why many choose home brewing. They like a specific style of beer and thrive to get just the right taste. Often there is a certain taste or style of beer that is not available commercially in their area. Home brewing is, for many, not only convenient but a way to get the "live beer" taste. Almost all beer that is made is pasteurized, so you're not getting the natural taste. When beer is pasteurized, it has to be cooked, which takes out the carbonation. Commercial brewers "force carbonation" by taking the boiled off alcohol and mixing it with the pasteurized beer, which kills the yeast. Without live yeast, the beer will not age properly, which affects the taste of the beer. Yeast not only improves the taste of beer, but the color and texture as well. The more beer ages, the better it tastes, which is a large reason why so many choose to home brew their own beer.

Get the eBook version FREE* with purchase via Amazon's MatchBook service. How to Make Beer is the first companion book to the best selling Home Distiller's Workbook. Many people are looking to learn the lost art of Moonshining and try to jump right into distilling but quickly learn that running a still is only half of the equation. While certainly important, distillation does not make alcohol, it only concentrates it. The real magic of alcohol is in brewing. A little known secret is that brewing a good beer is the first real step to making a great whiskey. As such I wrote this book to teach people the basics of brewing. We will cover the topic of Extract Brewing, as opposed to the more complicated All Grain Brewing which will be covered in the next book in the series. You will learn all the concepts and skills needed to not only make a good larger or ale but also what sets it apart from a distiller's beer/mash. We will discuss malts, yeasts, and different brewing techniques. Whether you want to just learn how to make your own beer or you are looking to round out your moonshine making skills, How to Make Beer will give you the essential skills you need. *Note that all books published by FOI Publishing are DRM FREE as well as MATCHBOOK ENABLED. What is MatchBook? MB is a program in Amazon where, if the publisher enables it (And we have!), you get the kindle version for a discounted price. How discounted? Well at FOIPub we think FREE is the right answer to that question. Our view is that you have purchased a "License" for the book. You paid for it right? Then who are we to say when and how you want to enjoy your media. Paperback or eBook, we don't care, read it however you want. That is why all FOIPub eBooks are now 100% when you buy the paperback! It is also why there is no DRM (Digital Rights Management). DRM is used to stop people from copying media from one device to another. Mainly to stop media pirates from stealing an author's work. Our take at FOIPub is that we don't just assume that our readers are thieves like some publisher do! And lets face it, honest folk will pay for good content and thieves never were going to pay for it in the first place. Its why we call them thieves right? So if you are a customer please know that we honor and respect your choice to pay for our content. If you are a thief, what can I say, hope you like your Karma!
