How to brew beer at home
Ever wanted to be your own beer brewmaster? Well you’re in luck! This article lists out the step by step to brewing your own batch of beer at home. Imagine women will love your batch and men will idolize your awesome boozology.
You can walk to the nearest store and pick up a beer kit, but these are the basics:
- Large canning pot to boil in
- Beer Bottling equipment (caps and a bottler)
- A bucket with a lid
- An airlock to attach to the your bucket (Available @ Amazon
- Malted barley or extract
- Measuring cup
- 1. Sanitize Everything: You don’t want your beer brew to have any chance of being spoiled or contaminated. Be sure to wash and sanitize everything. To make sure you kill all germs you can always boil everything in addition to boiling.
- 2. Create the Wort: Wort serves as the base of your beer brew and is basically the mixture of barley and hops. This beer base of barley and hops will be fermented later by adding in the yeast. You’ll want to start by boiling a measure amount of water in your large pot. When the water reaches the boiling point, dump it into a large bucket to start the cooling process. Now you will add the Malted Barley and the base hops. Once you have maked sure that everything has been completely mixed throughout you will then continue to boil the beer base for about an hour. You will need to stir frequently, so be sure you keep an eye on the batch throughout the process. Don’t forget to add in finishing hops to the boil. You will also need to begin boiling another pot of water that we will use later!
- 3. Cool down the Wort: You will need to cool down the wort ASAP after it’s done boiling.The best way might be to place your pot into a tub or sink filled with cold water/ice water. The point is to bring down the temperature down as fast a possible to allow the yeast to begin it’s fermentation magic. You will want to shoot for cooling the wort down to the 70 degree range.
- 4. Fermentation: No the time comes for the extra pot we set aside boiling earlier. You will now add the yeast packets to that pot. Take out the beer base wort mixture that has been cooled off and add it to the new water & yeast combo a large bucket. Once everything has been mixed, cover it with an airlock, then place the beer batch in a cool, dark room. Leave the beer batch to ferment for 10-15 days. Remember to never touch the airlock during the process, unless you like crap beer.
- 5. Bottling: Be sure to sanitize all bottles and caps before the beer bottling process. You can boil pretty much all equipment involved to be sure it’s sanitized. Boil a measured amount of raw cane sugar in a measured amount of water and allow it to cool. Once this has cooled, combine the mixture into the beer batch fermentation bucket. Allow the mixture to sit for around 15-25 minutes.This process is actually what gives the beer its carbonation. Once the next mixture has settled, you can begin bottling the batch.You will need to siphon the beer batch into the bottles (Remember to maintain sanitation!). You will cap each bottle as you fill it. You can automate this process by purchasing a capping machine. You will then let the bottled beers to sit at room temperature, in the dark for 7-14 days. This will allow the carbonation to build up in the beer bottles.
- 6. Sit down, Pour beer, Drink, Be Happy, Profit

Top 10 Whiskey Brands and Best Whiskey
Whiskey is known to be a spirit of many different reputations. Whiskey has been known to be embraced by the upper class drinkers as a spirit that defines elegance and class. Whiskey has also been known to be categorized as a backwoods country folk kind of liquor. We like to think of whiskey being somewhere right in the middle of both. Either way you look at it, whiskey is in large viewied as a man’s man kind of liquor brand. Whiskey is best known to hail from America (Tennessee/Kentucky) and Scotland, but in reality whiskey is actually produced in several other places in the world as well. Whiskey is produced in different forms, flavorings the world over.
Whiskey is unique in that each whiskey brand tends to carry it’s own reputation instead of whiskey as a whole having one reputation. For example: Jim Bean whiskey clearly doesn’t have the same reputation as Jameson whiskey (they’re also different types of whiskey). Throughout all the different variations, one constant holds true for all whiskey brands. Whiskey goes through a strict aging process and carries a very distinct flavor.
This articke will list out and explain the different whiskey types and the top 10 whiskey brands for each type.
These Whiskey types include:
The process of making whiskey involves whiskey being distilled from a fermented grain mash. Different distillers use different types of grains to create the different types of whiskey. These different types of grains used in whiskey can include wheat, rye, barley, corn, maize, malted barley, and malted rye. After whiskey has been distilled, it goes through an aging process. The whiskey aging process involves the whiskey aging in barrels and casks that are made of trade secret oak and wood. It can be argued that the whiskey aging process is the most important when it comes to quality of whiskey taste and texture.
The process of distilling and again whiskey is strictly regulated, and each form of whiskey falls under a different aging process. These regulations and processes are upheld all around the world. The are several different ways to consume whiskey. The type of whiskey to be consumed will usually dictate how the whiskey is suppoed to be drank. Whiskey has been known to be drank straight, on ice, and also mixed with cola. It’s completely up to the consumer and his/her personal preference.

What makes American(bourbon) whiskey different from Scotch whiskey?
American whiskey is known to use several different grains such as corn, rye, maize during the fermenting process. American whiskey is also held to a different standard when it comes to aging and cask type (barrel). American whiskey has a reputation of being country and backwoods, and a burley man’s drink.
Scoth whiskey is held to strict standards and is barley based and is only distilled in the country of Scotland. Scotch whiskey also only uses a special kind of cask for aging. Scotch whiskey has the reputation of elegance and class.
We prefer both.
Best whiskey list explained
The list of best whiskies below was made to highlight whiskey brands that wouldn’t be too hard for the average person to find at their local liquor store.

The odds are if you’re that much of a whiskey connoisseur then you most likely are a member of some elite whiskey forum, etc. We hope you enjoy these whiskey brands, because we sure do!
Top 10 American Whiskey brands
(Bourbon, Tennesse, etc.)
1. Maker’s Mark Whiskey
Our favorite American Bourbon Whiskey. We feel Maker’s Mark whiskey doesn’t really get the credit it deserves among the main stream public, and might be a bit underrated in regards to bourbon. They also take care of their customers. They are always sending out free stuff for their loyal customer base. If you like the taste of whiskey and for some reason haven’t had the pleasure of trying Marker’s mark, do yourself a favor and purchase a bottle.
2. Four Roses Whiskey
A whiskey that for a long period of time was hard to find in major stores. This might be the most underrated liquor, let alone whiskey in America. Four Roses Whiskey is top quality whiskey, that you might have to do a little searching for. Four Roses has been known to be a Whiskey Drinker’s whiskey.
3. Knob Creek Whiskey
When we feel like benig rough around the edges men, we reach for a bottle of Knob creek whiskey. Knob creek whiskey is known to feature a rich, strong taste, that’s dark in color. The price point is a little higher for Knob creek, but well worth it in the end. Knob creek whiskey is also known to have a very loyal customer base. It could be argued that any of the first three whiskey brands on this list deserve the number 1 spot.
4. Blanton’s Whiskey
We would have rated this whiskey a little higher, but it seems to have strong feelings either for it or against it. We happen to love this whiskey, but the price sparks anger with some. Blanton whiskey is known to have a rich flavor with subtle hints of caramel and vanilla.
5. Woodford Reserve Whiskey
Woodford Reserve Whiskey might be the best whiskey available for the price. This whiskey is quality in taste, and a favorite of thousands of whiskey lovers. Another whiskey with a very loyal customer base. We also love the name.

This whiskey is another very, very popular American whiskey. Wild Turkey is also great quality and just because a brand is super popular, it doesn’t mean that it’s not quality.
8. Old Rip Van Winkle Whiskey
This whiskey is strong. Old Rip packs a punch with a proof at 107. With a proof that high, one would assume that this whiskey would be lacking in taste. That’s not the case with Old Rip. We imagine we’ll be sipping this whiskey when we become wise old men, and telling stories to our grandchildren.
9. Elijah Craig Whiskey
This whiskey is excellent quality for the price you have to pay. For the ratio of quality to price this whiskey can’t be ignored on this best whiskey list. If you’re running low on funds, grab a bottle of Elijah and still enjoy great whiskey.
