It is the purest form of brewing beer and lets you influence your end-product the absolute most. You are in complete control of your beer—color and aroma; flavor and mouthfeel; classic style to wild and crazy. This is brewing beer “from scratch.” And, it is actually the least expensive way to produce beer (minus the equipment).
