Making your own beer might be one of the most fun diy projects one could ever have. Not only is the act of making beer fun, you also end up with an amazing result. This is the sixth brew my roommates and I have done. The style of beer is an English Bitter.

Beer culture is a taste culture, in that knowing your flavours and beer styles helps you accrue a certain cultural capital.
