This is the art of producing wine or beer using either hops or grapes with yeast which combining with heat ferments to make an alcoholic beverage

Popularity
This is extremely popular due to the cost of the final product. you do not need to have too much in the way of equipment and the results can be extremely pleasurable if not quaffable!

Location
All that is needed is a small area to either store a barrel or a demijohn or two with a small amount of heat which can be provided by a heating pad or even an airing cupboard.

Age
Anybody can brew their own beer or wine all they need is necessary equipment and a bit of patience.

Ability
This can be done by beginners and experts alike. There are many starter kits available on the market so the beginner can get a taste (no pun intended) of what is involved. More expert brewers will probably buy ingredients to tailor their own brews.

Description
There is little to rival the glory, glee and general excitement that brewing instills in the brewer or winemaker. Beer brewing can be as complex or simple as you wish to make it. There are beer brewing kits available for purchase that simplify brewing to the point that the brewer need only pour one liquid into another and let the mixture sit in an airtight container before drinking. Wine making can be equally as simple. However the real art is brewing from scratch with sourced ingredients.

Dedication
The main crieteri required for brewing is a bit of patience and the ability to work in a clean and sterilised environment. Generally if brewing beer it is a minimum of four weeks before you can taste the fruits of your labours, but generally eight weeks would be the recommended waiting time. All equipment used must be sterilised prior to use to prevent any infections reaching the brew. As with many other hobbies, practice makes perfect and what could be better than a taste of your own brew?

Potential
From hobbyist to Master Brewer, some go from hobby to running their own brewery or micro brewery.

Cost
A starter kit would cost around ?20-30
