Brewing Your First Beer Is Easier Than You Think.
If you enjoy drinking beer then you’ve probably thought about brewing your own.
I know I have.
Many times while tasting a flight of beer at a local brewery, I’ve thought to myself “hmm… if this was a little more hoppy or a little more full bodied” – I always felt like I could improve on that beer but I didn’t know how to brew. The truth was… I was intimidated about brewing my own beer. Yet… I still had day dreams of making my own beer someday.
I had convinced myself that brewing beer would be complicated. Until I tried it.
This course is a summary of all the knowledge my roommate and I received from our beer brewing journey that resulted in 6 different beers totaling 30 gallons.

Our names are Michael and Andy. We are craft beer enthusiasts and have been on a journey to brew awesome and unique tasting craft beers.
We have a craft beer blog and have created this beginners course on brewing beer to help those that want to get started along the journey of brewing craft beer from home as well! Hundreds of students have taken our course and have learned how to brew their own beer.
We have experience brewing a variety of extract beer recipes ranging from IPAs to Hefeweizens to Stouts. We focus on brewing craft beer from home kitchens so everything we teach can be done by the everyday brewer. At this point we've brewed hundreds of gallons of beer from our home kitchen and am now going to explore all grain brewing (a more advanced version of brewing compared to extract brewing).
My name is Andy Norris and I've been an engineer for 5 years. I graduated from SDSU with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, and I am EIT certified in California. I currently work as a salary design engineer for a multinational diversified engineering and manufacturing corporation.
