The holiday season is now in full swing which means it’s time to buckle down and get your holiday shopping done.
If you have a homebrewer in your life and are struggling to come up with some great gift ideas, you’ve come to the right spot. Any of the following items will be sure to put a smile on their face this holiday season.
Now that Halloween has come and gone, the holiday season has officially arrived.
If you haven’t gotten around to brewing a holiday beer or two this year, don’t fret just yet. There is still time to get going.
Are you tired of brewing the same recipes over and over again? Are you looking for some fun ways to shake up your homebrews and try out something new and fun? Generally speaking, homebrewers tend to be an experimental bunch, so we’ve put together a few ideas you might be interested in trying out.
This blog will take a closer look at each of the four main ingredients in beer: malted grains, water, hops, and yeast. Each of these four ingredients plays an important role in beer and can greatly affect the final outcome of a batch. As a homebrewer, the better you understand the science behind each ingredient, the better you will be able to make informed decisions when tweaking or troubleshooting a recipe.
If you’re a new homebrewer or considering taking up the hobby, Synergy Brewing Systems would like to welcome you to the wonderful world of homebrewing! You are joining a great community of people who are passionate about perfecting and enjoying beer. Before you get started with your first batch, there are a few common mistakes made by newcomers that you’ll want to avoid.
At Synergy Brewing Systems, our homebrew systems are the best available. Our 15 gallon pilot brewing systems are great for intermediate to advanced homebrewers, but not every run needs to capitalize on the full capabilities of these systems. In fact, there are quite a few benefits to doing small batch runs every once in a while.
At Synergy Brewing Systems, we love homemade, hand-crafted homebrews, but one of the main issues facing homebrewers is what to do with all the spent material left over from a run. Understanding the importance of sustainability and the value that spent grain still has after use in homebrewing, we compiled this list of better ways to use your grain than just simply throwing it out.
What makes a great homebrew? A lot of it has to do with attention to detail. Although there may not be one “right” way to brew, here are some crucial aspects of the brewing process to keep in mind for your next homebrew.
Whether it’s a hobby, an obsession or a way of life, homebrewing is important to a large group of people and its popularity has only increased with time. The reason why homebrewing is so satisfying is arguably because making something by hand and seeing others enjoy the fruits of your labor is of one the best feelings in the world. And if it turns out good, it’s that much better! For those as curious as us, here’s more about the rise of homebrewing.

Have you ever wondered why you should control the temperature of your fermenting beer? Any humble brewer will tell you, “I don’t make beer; I make wort. Yeast makes beer.” While that is true, one of the final steps in brewing a batch is also the most vital to control: fermentation. Yeast health, pitch rate, and temperature will all affect the way your beer tastes; we’ll just focus on temperature here. While most commercial breweries have glycol-jacketed fermentors they can control to the degree, homebrewers are often left to their wits to finagle ways to keep temperature in check.
