When it comes to brewing there are several maxims that I have learned to live by. I’ve decided to call these The Immutable Laws of Brewing because it sounds cool. I’ll add to this list as I discover more truths.
The Immutable Laws of Homebrewing
It’s just beer!
Yes. It is just beer. If you miss a hop addition, your mash temperature is off by a few degrees, or something gets infected, nobody is going to die. Use your mistakes as a learning experience. If you don’t know what they issue was, share your beer with some friends, try to figure out what happened, and try not to make the same mistake next time. A mistake can also help you discover something new and delicious.
