Mashing-and-Sparging_cAt first glance at this article it may seem that mashing is an extremely difficult process and super-critical as regards temperature, time, and 1001 other things. Please rest assured that it is not. The mash is surprisingly easy, tolerant, recovers well from up-cocks, and rarely fails. It is time consuming - yes, but it is not difficult or particularly critical. If you do not understand some of the technical aspects of this chapter do not let it concern you. You can quite safely skip the difficult bits. You do not really need to know what goes on during the mash, just as you do not need to know the chemical reactions that take place when baking a cake. Mashing is similar to making a pot of tea, except that the temperature at which the infusion takes place is lower.

water_cIf you are a beginner to brewing you can skip this article completely and come back to it at a later stage in your apprenticeship. If you are brewing from kits there is no need to worry about water treatment at all. If you are brewing from malt extract there is still probably no need to concern yourself with the matter. The main benefits of water treatment are obtained when mashing from grain, but even so, perfectly acceptable ales can still be brewed without it. Only if you are a perfectionist and an experienced brewer seeking to fine-tune the quality of your beers should you need to concern yourself with water treatment.

brewing_yeast_cYeast is probably the most important item used in the production of ale and beer, yet its significance is often underrated. But the lack of information gives the impression that yeast is of minor importance and that any old yeast will do the job. Unfortunately, this is not the case. It is not generally appreciated by the amateur brewer that about half of the components that go towards the flavour of beer are supplied by the yeast in the form of fermentation by-products. The quality, flavour, and aroma of a beer are all affected by the type and quality of the yeast employed.

hop_cYou are probably quite aware of the fact that beer is made from malted barley, and that hops supply bitterness, aroma, and preservative properties to beer, but if you ask a number of laymen, "What is beer made from?", you will probably be astounded to learn of the number of people that give the simple reply, "hops", with no mention of malt or barley. A large number of people are quite unaware of the fact that the primary ingredient of beer (apart from water) is malted barley.

beer_cThe primary ingredient of beer is malted barley. Barley for English brewing is traditionally a specially selected variety of English two-rowed barley. English brewing barley is usually specially grown, because it is important that brewing barley should have a low protein content. An excess of protein and certain other nitrogenous substances will encourage haze to be formed in the finished beer.


If you'd like to drink great beer, more healthy and delicious, there is a chance for you: make your own beer. Do you think it is too hard? Then you're wrong. Of course, it wouldn't be piece of cake, but it is rather interesting. Remember: if you do not fully understand something do not let it worry you unduly. You do not need to understand the science of brewing in order to produce good beer, in the same way that you do not need to know the chemical reactions that take place when baking a cake.

We offer you several advises how to make your dinner party great and realy pleasant, several recipes of canapes and some drinks before dinner.

cuttingThe preparation of food for cooking is probably more important and more time-consuming in Chinese cookery than in any other cuisine. Although many dishes are cooked rapidly, this presupposes that every ingredient has been properly prepared beforehand and has been chopped into smallish, well shaped pieces to ensure even and quick cooking. This means that food can be cooked for a minimum of time so that it retains its natural texture and taste. The other reason for careful cutting is to enhance the visual appeal of a dish.

Watersuplies_cAre you worried about America's future? Who isn't?  When economic collapse strikes, who will you rely on? The government, your church, your neighbors, who? Yourself, that's who. Nobody else is in charge, but you. Your family is relying on you to see that they are well-prepared and in the event of a disaster, it's your duty to help them. Knowing how to store food for long term survival is an essential skill that few have. In early America food storage was necessary and practiced by all.
