For new or beginner home brewers!

Catherine from Fairview Heights

Hi everyone, I want to open up a discussion...

A year ago, my mate Nathan and I were talking about our passions. Mine was climbing and his was home brewing. He recounted his struggles when he first started brewing - The lack of guidance and scattered information was overwhelming and he almost quit after a few failed attempts. As a designer and a person passionate about helping others find their passions, I wanted home brewing to be the first community I help grow based on what I've heard.

Since then, I've personally created a few brews! With Nathan by my side, my now business partner, none have failed (Yaay!). Perhaps I should have done them myself to understand the pain beginners feel... but what it taught me was how straightforward brewing could be. Yet, during the course of my brewing journey, 2 of my friends failed their first batch and gave up.

Nathan and I have created Brewers Clan - A digital platform that helps beginner home brewers brew right the first time. We’re currently in the discovery phase and have built a few features to further discover pains points.

If you’re a beginner home brewer, what are you struggling with?

For established home brewers, what are the most common beginner mistakes you all run into?
