The process of making the beer happens in five stages. The first stage is where you brew all your ingredients together. To start off with you might want to stick to a basic recipe but once you get the hang of it you might want to consider taking a look at a Flavouring Manufacturers such as Stringer Flavour to get some flavourings to add to your beers.
