How can I make good beer

Brew your own beer

[ADVERTISEMENT] Do-it-yourself brewing is not a rocket science - nor is it a super expensive intensive hobby. Our cooperation partner Klarstein has top equipment for beginners and experienced home brewers in its range.

Brew your own beer? Yes, of course, that is fine. And it's not that difficult and fun. No wonder, we are increasingly talking about homebrewing, there are more and more hobby brewers in Germany. If you want to try it out yourself, you will find tips, tricks and important information here to make your first brew really tasty.
The nice thing is: A few basics are enough to turn malt, hops, yeast and water into a beer. It will look, smell and taste like beer.
The next time you try brewing you will get better, you will meet a very specific beer style (or not right away, but that doesn't matter!), Play with raw materials and get creative.
And hey presto, bang, boom, are you there, are you a hobby brewer and homebrewing is your new, big love. Because: making beer yourself is pretty great!

[SPONSORED POST] We are testing two Klarstein products that you can brew yourself. In the case of the brewing machine, the machine takes over the direction: temperature, stirring, lautering - it's all up to you. We stir the mash kettle ourselves and try to keep the temperature under control. Real craft versus “magical little machine”.

Homebrewing alone may be smart (more beer for me!), But not pretty. Just as it is better to drink, mash and cook together and it also fills up nicely together. Tim Hauke ​​and Christian Gläser have therefore come up with something for pack brewing: The Mash Pit, a kind of coworking space for hobby brewers in the north of Berlin
