In an earlier post, I spoke about the nutritional value of so-called spent grain, and why you should re-use this ingredient, abundant at a home brewer’s place. In that article you I gave you 5 amazing recipes for sweet baked goods explaining what kind of spent grain to use, and how to use it, depending on the recipe. In this post I wanted to share with you my favorite savory spent grain recipes that will please any beer lover. To be served with the appropriate homebrew. Cheers!
This year, as part of my homerewing adventure, I have decided to try growing hops plants at home for the first.
These essential plants for the home brewer are not particularly difficult or requiring a complicated technique to grow. Just keep in mind you need a lot of space, as hops can get up to 20 to 25 feet tall and will establish a deep root system. Hops are not invasive, though. You don’t need to be an expert gardener, and producing your own brewing hops will provide you with one more quality ingredient you can control to produce your beer. For years.
With most on-premise venues closed because of this viral crisis, our options to enjoy our daily quality beer are – to buy it from the store or to brew it at home. Here are 5 reasons why this the perfect time to make beer at home.
