If you’re considering making your own beer, it’s a good idea for you to start out with some basic home brewing beer recipes. Somewhere down the line you can start to experiment with different flavors, fruits, and other additions to your mix, but for now, it’s good to nail down the basics before moving on.
Brew Your Own Herbal Beers! Before hops were popular (we’re talking hundreds of years ago), a wide variety of herbs and spices provided the bittering and flavoring characteristics to balance beer’s malty sweetness. By using herbs in your own homebrew, you can recreate ancient styles of beer (such as Sahti and Scottish Gruit) and also exercise your creative spirit to develop something entirely new.
