Which beer should I brew first?
Since lagers require temperature-controlled fermentation, it’s usually best to make your first home brew beer an ale. Ales include IPAs, porters, brown ales, and stouts. Once you build your own fermentation chamber, then you can go crazy with the lagers.
What is the order of beer tasting?
Think about the order in which you drink the individual beers in a flight, and build yourself a story in beer. Start with something light and refreshing — a lager or a blonde ale — then progress to more full-flavored, stronger brews: pale ale, then an IPA, or a brown ale and then a stout.
How long before beer is ready?
The time it takes for your beer to go from raw materials to finished, ready to drink beer depends on a number of different factors. Generally, the process takes between four and eight weeks (one to two months). Four weeks is pretty much the least amount of time you’ll have to wait.
How do I know if my beer is ready to bottle?
The best way to figure out when to bottle your beer is to take hydrometer readings. In the final days of the fermentation period, take a hydrometer reading every 1-2 days until there is no change in the reading. That’s how you know when fermentation is complete.

Should you drink light or dark beer first?

- List by Flavor.
- List by Origin.

What happens if I bottle beer too early?
Bottling too early could result in broken bottles: messy, chain-reactive, and possibly dangerous. Bottling a little early could result in naturally carbonated beer if you apply precision focus.
Can you leave beer in fermenter too long?
If you leave the beer too long you have a higher chance of the yeast cells starting to break down in your beer (autolysis). This breaking down of cells releases the contents of the cells into your beer (this can include off flavours processed by the yeast).
How long leave beer in primary fermenter?
For styles such as American Amber Ale or German Altbier, we recommend 1 week in the primary and 2-3 weeks in the secondary. As a beer gets darker in color it becomes more important to let the beer sit longer in the fermenter.
How long after bottling beer Can I drink it?
After you bottle the beer, give it at least two weeks before drinking it. The yeast needs a few days to actually consume the sugar, and then a little more time is needed for the beer to absorb the carbon dioxide. (Read this post to learn about the science behind carbonation.)
How long does it take for beer to carbonate in a bottle?
The beer should be carbonated in 7-10 days. It should ferment out in somewhere around a week to 10 days and your beer will be carbonated. However, If you have it too soon, it might be a bit sweet and under carbonated. If that’s the case, leave it for longer. It will continue to condition in the bottle.
What to do after fermenting beer?
