Time is a tough thing to get these days. Homebrewing as a hobby has a significant amount of down time built into it: Primary fermentation, Secondary fermentation, bottle conditioning, hangovers…. But it also requires a good block of “investment” time to get a batch going. Getting your wort made can take upwards of 5-6 hours depending on your techniques and methods.
On this page, John and I will hope to outline several key changes to equipment or process that you can use to shave time off your brew session and still make good beer. Our hope is to make this page a growing list of suggestions with links to detailed follow-up posts for each technique listed.
We encourage readers to leave comments here about things they’ve done to shorten their process, and we’ll try and include the best one’s in the growing list. We look forward to developing this content and your suggestions as we add to the list.
What list? Here it is:
