Benefits Of Brewing With Extract

Is Extract Brewing Better? Over the last decade, home brewing has grown from a fledgling hobby into an activity that millions of Americans take part in every year. The ability to brew your own beer at home isn’t just a great way to spend an afternoon, it is an activity that teaches people a lot about the chemistry and science behind brewing. The first thing most homebrewers are tasked with when deciding to try their hand at brewing, is whether or not they are going to use an all-grain recipe or make use of extracts.
