Example text

Everything you learn in the process will make other brewing efforts much easier and more successful. Specifically, you’ll begin to know nature’s chemistry—the idiosyncrasies in various fruits and spices that can make or break the results of your efforts. For example, knowing that strawberries ferment very quickly will help you avoid messy, sticky bottle explosions. Additionally, your first beverage efforts should be done with simple, cost-effective ingredients. This way if you don’t get it right, you haven’t spent a fortune.

These come in various sizes to keep your bottles from accidentally exploding when pressure builds. They are inexpensive (usually under $1 each) and keep you from having to clean up a very sticky mess. Pressure in brewing bottles becomes quite volatile in the initial stages of fermentation. This can cause bottles to explode, throwing glass shards everywhere. Therefore, commit yourself to either monitoring your brews on a daily basis (burping the bottles), to using balloons on the bottle tops during early fermentation, or to buying some fermentation locks.

This is the one time when I will suggest you experiment a little. I was amazed at the wonderful teas and wines roses produce, and these have now become among my favorite brewing ingredients. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised by this, or many other petals, too! Another good precaution is a simple one: Don’t make anything to which you might have an allergic reaction, and don’t share homemade beverages with others without telling them the ingredients if you think allergies might be a problem.
