Helpful Definition for: Home Brewing

 

Home brewing in Aurora is defined as the process of brewing the alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages like beer, wine, sake, mead, cider, perry etc. by fermentation on a small scale, mainly as a hobby for non-commercial reasons such as- personal consumption, free distribution at social gatherings or amateur brewing competitions

Home brewing kits may be of various types & make. The major types of such kits are-

All-grain kits containing grains & hops & sometimes yeast also.

Malt extract kits contain dry, syrupy or liquid form of malt extract.

Pre-hopped malt extract contain liquid malt extract, already boiled with hops to introduce bitterness & flavor.

Over carbonation can be dangerous in home-brewing, resulting in gushing or even exploding of bottles. The safest approach to carbonation is to add priming sugar or malt extract at bottling time to the beer containing no fermentable sugar. Kegs & special bottling equipment may also be used to force-carbonate a beer bottle by controlling the carbonation levels.

Reconditioned Cornelius Kegs are often used in home brewing for aging, filtering, and storing beer. Kegs in Aurora may be available in special designs for this purpose.

Since all the kegs have residual pressure, which must be vented to avoid exploding of the valve to injure or kill a person. The Kegs are recommended not to be sanitized with bleach as that might leave unpleasant residuals.

Home brewing results in less packaging and transportation of commercially brewed beverages by the use of refillable jugs, reusable bottles or other reusable containers & thus reduce the harmful environmental impacts of brewing industry.
