Brewers Dictionary

Since I'm basically new at beer brewing, one thing I have found out is that research is extremely important.....and apparently that can't be stressed enough! My head starts to spin when I look at a recipe and it has all these words that I've never heard. I can clearly see how some people get discouraged. I mean, what the hell is mash tun...or sparge mean? Well, the way I figured it, is that, in order to make a good beer, one must have one hell of a vocabulary. So.....I have found a couple of websites that can assist you on your journey:

  1. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/101/terms.php
  2. http://www.brew-monkey.com/brewschool/glossary.php

Now, I am well aware of the fact that there are tons of websites with this information, these are just the two that I had time to sit and read. All you have to do is google "beer brewing terminology", and you are on the right track, but I do prefer beeradvocate.com. They have all kinds of information for the "brewing challenged". Good Luck and drink one for me!
