Home brewing is a hobby that has gained quite a bit of traction in recent years, but it takes a large mix of time and patience to get it right.  However, Deutsche Welle highlighted a relatively new home brewing system made in Germany that should at least take some of the time out of the equation by making it possible to brew your own beer within 8 hours.  You’ll still need a side of patience though, as it will still take about 4-6 weeks to complete the aging process before you can have your first sip.

Alexander Jäger and Robert Burgholzer, the two men behind the Bielmeier Beer Brewing System, made sure that with just a little skill, pretty much anyone can create a unique beer that suits their taste.  Caution is obviously still needed during the process as the elements can burn if not monitored, and a basic understanding of the beer process will prevent mistakes such as adding too much hops or producing a cloudy beer.

While it isn’t the only home brewing kit on the market, the Bielmeier Beer Brewing System appears to take some of the guesswork out of the process and offers a complete package that will get you started in no time.  Over 1000 of the home brewing systems have been sold and are available throughout Europe for just under 580 €.  Deutsche Welle claims the unit is sold worldwide, but we were only able to find availability in Europe.
