Thinking about taking a homebrewing class?

There once was a time when brewing your own beer put you in danger of some serious penalties, including incarceration. But fear not! Homebrewing was officially legalized in 1978. Last year, the American Homebrewer’s Association saw a huge 23% jump in membership, and now estimates that around one million Americans create their own cold ones at least once a year. Even President Obama has jumped on board!

If you think it’s too complicated or time-consuming, think again. This humble Vimbly intern has a batch of pumpkin ale in the works, and it was a breeze to set up. As the song goes, the waiting is the hardest part (T minus 5 weeks until consumption).

So without further ado, here’s all you need to start brewing your own beer:
