Learn The Brewing Process
If you are still reading this blog you have likely done some research on micro-brewing. A single article will not be able to explain the intricacies of the brewing process — learning how to brew is one-part research and one-part experimentation. Before investing in an at-home micro-brewery, we encourage you to gain some experience at this craft.
Clean and Clear Your Garage
Once you have gained some experience at brewing you can begin budgeting for your micro-brewery.
