The Homebrew Academy
Learn How to Brew Beer at Home
Billy takes the time to answer your questions and the videos get you on the right track, things you will never learn from a book. In my first year as a homebrewer I have brewed 100 gallons of beer and love this hobby thanks to the help from Billy and the Homebrew Academy.
Break free from relying on kits. A true brewer can put together a recipe on his own.
We’ll give you the building blocks for creating great beer recipes. You’ll be able to start with a blank piece of paper and write out a recipe for a great IPA – all from your head. Or you can tweak an existing recipe that’s almost there, but is just missing something.
When you go through the recipe creation lessons, you will:
Armed with this knowledge, you’ll soon be crafting recipes that win awards and leave your friends speechless.
Our forum is very different. If you’ve used an internet forum before, you’ve undoubtedly come across anonymous posters spewing hate. “Trolls” they’re called. Even outside of trolls, conversations constantly get off track and you never really know who to trust.
The Academy forum is private, personal, and focused. It’s a rule that every members must include a picture of themselves and their name on their profile. If they don’t, they’re banned from posting.
Strict? Yes. Does it improve the forum? Without a doubt.
Because it’s a premium forum, the junk is left out and what’s left is a comfortable environment where you can trust you’ll get the best answers to your homebrewing questions.
Since you’ll be on a first name basis with the other members, you can have intelligent conversations without wondering what’s lurking behind that empty avatar.
The forums give you access to experts who can answer your questions and provide feedback on everything from recipes to equipment purchases. Or you can just talk about a great beer you had.
All-grain brewing is brewing in its true form. It gives you ultimate control, but getting there can be intimidating.
The Homebrew Academy makes going all-grain a smooth and gradual process. You don’t need to jump into all-grain. You can step into in.
You’ll also learn the equipment you need. No we’re not going to recommend you immediately invest your life’s savings into a fully automated brew system that can text you mash temperatures (although you can do that if you want). We start with the most basic set up which only involves a few extra items beyond what you already own from extract brewing. Then you can work your way up through the equipment levels, all the way to the texting mash tun if you want.
Our members are going all-grain sooner than they every thought possible, for less money than they ever thought possible. The best part? They’re brewing great beer, too.
Great beer boils down to what you know and what you don’t. We’ll show you techniques, tips, and examples for bringing your beer from good to great.
Hit a brewing plateau? Is your beer consistently good, but you just can seem to take it to the next level? Some of the tips you’re probably using already, but we bet there is a hidden trick you haven’t discovered yet that could be just what you need to explode through the plateau.
Here is some of what you’ll learn about:
In homebrewing, it’s hard to know what gear is important and what’s not.
Equipment is a big part of the hobby. Look at any homebrewing catalog and you’ll see how many options there are for gear. Some of this stuff makes life much easier and some is just not worth it. How do you decide?
Our equipment guide will explain the different pieces of equipment, what they’re for, and if you need them. Side by side comparison tables allow you to compare features and prices from different brands.
I’ve personally tested almost every homebrewing gadget there is. Some I now couldn’t live without, and some….well let’s just say my money would have been better spent at the bar.
I’ll share my experience and tell you my recommendations for what to buy first, and what to wait on.
You can put the savings to what else – making more beer.
