Setting Up Your Homebrewing Space
If you’re interested in homebrewing, then it’s important to have a space that’s dedicated to mixing, fermenting, and bottling. At Brew Perfect, we’re here to provide you with outstanding micro brew equipment, such as a digital hydrometer, but the creation of your homebrew space is up to you. Above all, it should be a place that you enjoy spending time in, and where you can create amazing beer whenever you want!
Storage and Shelving
You’ve invested time and money into acquiring the equipment you need, such as buckets, carboys, sanitizers, and more, but where are you going to keep it all? You don’t want your brewing space to become cluttered, and that’s where storage and shelving come in handy.
Plastic storage bins can be your best friends, especially because you can rinse them off, should anything spill inside of them. You can also stack these bins, which means they take up less space in the room.
Your shelving should be durable, since you may be placing heavy items on them from time to time. You don’t want them to take up too much space, but putting several against the wall will provide the storage you need from floor to ceiling.
Create an Organized Workflow
It’s important for your brewing space to be organized, and nothing is more important than making sure everything is set up in the proper order. You want your workflow to be smooth, so if your keg and bottle filler is between the mash tun and the storage tank, then things can quickly get confusing. Setting up your space in the order that your beer is mixed, fermented, stored, and bottled will help you stay organized, no matter how many times a year you brew.
Make the Space Your Own
While you may be setting up in the garage or the basement, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the space your own. You want the room to be clean and free of clutter, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t hang your favorite beer signs on the wall or have a table and a set of chairs in the corner for those tasting sessions with your friends. Think about your favorite taprooms or pubs and what they have in terms of decor, and use that as inspiration for your space.
Homebrewing can be challenging, but it should also be fun, and having a dedicated space that reflects your tastes and your personality can make the process that much more enjoyable. At Brew Perfect, we’re here to make sure that you can make the most of your space with the best digital hydrometer and other micro brew equipment so that you know exactly where in the process your latest batch currently sits.
If you’re just starting to brew, or you’ve been doing it for years and you’re looking for ways to make the process easier, then order your new homebrewing products today. We know you’ll love how well they work, and how they help you create the perfect beer for any time of the year!
