Take a look in any home brewing catalogue and you’d likely feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of trinkets available for purchase. Doesn’t that seem kind of strange given the fact that beer has a 7,000 year history?
I’ve brewed in barns, houses, 125sq/ft apartments, a commercial brewery and with electricity, propane and even over firewood. This course is the summation of my 12 years of brewing and experience. The longer I brew the more I keep coming back to simple, DIY brewing. Over this course, I will walk you through 3 different brewing rigs and their many potential variations. In addition, I will give you a tour of 6 different kegerator configurations and help you find an equipment build that fits your brewing needs without crushing your homebrew budget. Come with me on 2 actual step-by-step brews on 2 different systems: a 50 dollar brew-in-a-bag system and my super efficient 10 gallon/4.5 sq. ft vertical system.
This course includes videos, illustrations, PDFs and pictures and access to I brew-U brew’s discussion group.
- This course assumes you have already made, or at least understand the principles of, extract brewing and fermentation.
- This course assumes that you can perform rudimentary beer making tasks such as using a thermometer and hydrometer
- If you don’t understand some all-grain beer brewing terms like mash, sparge, lauter, strike etc, a quick 30 minute study elsewhere on the Internet should bring you up to speed.
What are you going to get from the course:
- Over 45 lectures and 3.5 hours of content!
- brew 5 or 10 gallons of all-grain beer from inexpensive, DIY and multipurposed gear.

- This class is intended for anyone that loves beer.
- This course is aimed at the individual who wishes to move from extract to all-grain brewing without spending a small fortune on expensive and complicated gadgets.
- This course is intended for anyone who has ever said or thought, “I can’t make all-grain beer because I don’t have enough space in my home.”
- This course is for brewers looking to simplify their setup through the calculated use of multipurpose tools.
In this second I Brew – U Brew course series, I draw from my 13 years of brewing experience, in order to teach you deliberate and time conscious methods of how to make 5 gallons of all-grain beer, while utilizing DIY techniques in a very tiny brewing space. Forget everything you know, as you witness alternative mashing, fermenting, bottling and kegging techniques. I’ll also show you efficient and time-saving strategies, while completely eliminating the need for a mash tun, all the while turn up the heat on the Brew in a Bag method.
Bachelorism is more than a marital status, its a way of brewing. Deliberate, re-purposed, ambitious, thirsty and resourceful – there is a little bit of bachelor in all of us!
By purchasing “I Brew – U Brew: Brew like a Bachelor,” you’ll have an unlimited access to videos, PDFs, screencasts and illustrations.
After completing this course, you’ll be a confident single batch (5 gallons) Brew in a Bag brewer. This will help you transition seamlessly into a double batch (10 gallons) mash tun-focused brewing system, which is illustrated in my other course “I Brew – U Brew: small spaces, minimal gear, lotsa beer.”
- Students need to be able to perform basic beer brewing tasks such as take temperature and hydrometer readings.
- Students should be familiar with the principles of extract brewing
