Ask Real Beer

January 2000

We are looking for a machine to make our own beer ... Please send us some information on where we can purchase something like this. Thank you.

From Beer Dave: A machine to make your beer? I suggest that you spend about $10 bucks on a book called the Complete Joy of Hombrewing. It is written by Charlie Papazian and is considered the homebrewers bible. This will let you know if you really want to make your own brew at home. There have been some "Easy Bake Oven" kind of devices sold to make your own beer. These items are not what I would recommend for the beginner or the pro. They are the equivalent of trying to surf the net with a Commodore 64.

We try to answer readers' questions in a timely fashion but there are days the mail can be overwhelming. Some questions get private answers, while those of general interest are posted and archived. Please check the archives before asking your question. Visit Ask Real Beer to view the archives or post a new question.
