Learn the basics of homebrewing from this comprehensive infographic, put together by Kegorator.com.

Fun fact: President Jimmy Carter signed legislation in 1978 that made homebrewing for personal use legal and nontaxable at the federal level.

Another fun fact: There are 1.2 million homebrewers in the U.S., and homebrewers produce more than 2 million barrels of beer each year (that’s about 1% of production in the U.S.).

So what are you waiting for? Go purchase some grains, hops, yeast, malt extract, priming sugar—and equipment—and start brewing your first batch.
