Homebrewing

Brewing South Africa's favourite craft beers on a homebrew system.

I have this dream to visit craft breweries around the country and brew their tried and tested recipes on my Grainfather. The idea is to release these recipes, for a 25 liters batch of craft beer, so that home brewers in South Africa (or around the world) can attempt to recreate their favorite beers.

My goal is to get home brewers to try out new recipes and, once brewed, go out and buy the breweries beer to compare theirs to the original. Win-win, much in the same way that Brewdog in the UK released their entire recipe book, it’s great marketing!
