Beth & Danny's

Home Brewing




These are the beers that we have made since moving to Canberra.

Right from the beginning, we were so pleased with the results and got so enthusiastic about our new hobby that we purchased a second fermenter so that we could make two batches at a time. Every so often we have to get a bunch of friends in to help empty a few bottles so we can continue to make more.

Many of the 'regular' store bought beers now taste bland to us and we prefer the home brewed kind. Have a go .... you'll enjoy the results.

Nearly all beers have been modified to some degree by adding extra ingredients to enhance taste - often in an attempt to replicate some of our favourite beers from around the world (with varying degrees of success). Some have been repeated, but with subtle fine-tuning of the recipe for improvement. In this regard, the advice and guidance given by Colin Marshall of 'Brew your Own At Home' home brew shop in Kambah (a suburb of Canberra, Australia) is greatly appreciated. If you live anywhere near Canberra, he is the man to see for all your home brew needs.
