When you were still a novice home brewer, you might have been following the instructions laid out in recipe booklets by heart, afraid that if you change even one element of the whole process, you’d get a bad-tasting brew. Now that you’re quite adept at brewing your own beer, however, why not try tweaking and playing around with your home brewing recipes to get an interesting flavor?
Some people believe that to create a totally different brew, they have to start from scratch and find the right ingredients and factor in the necessary measurements, however you only need to make a few little tweaks on recipes you’ve already tried and tested. Fortunately, there are two ways you can drastically change your beer’s taste: either you change its ingredients or you don’t. First, you find a basic recipe that you can carry out perfectly, and then start experimenting.
