DIY Beer: Worth Every Penny Spent on Brewing Supplies in Sacramento
WiseBread.com contributor Marla Walters is familiar with brewing homemade beer. After her husband started the hobby, their kitchen was practically turned into a brewery—there’s a big stockpot with foam on the sides, a gigantic thermometer, tubes, and oddly shaped brushes. There’s also a bag of “carbonation drops” (which look like lemon drops, but are white), bottle caps, a capping apparatus, and a six-gallon glass “carboy” which is a huge, heavy bottle full of future beer.

If you’re an aspiring brewer, however, you’ll need to take note of a few things before you venture to your local brewing supplies store.
