This is only partially true. While it is certainly true that most homebrewers aren’t going to brew as frequently or as nifty of equipment as the professionals. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re going to make better or worse beer. In reality, the only limiting factor on the quality of your beer is in fact yourself.

3. Homebrewed beer contains toxins/harmful chemicals that are filtered out by the pros

People often forget that the most dangerous thing in beer is the alcohol itself. We think the reason why a lot of people think about this is that they’re thinking about bootleg distillation. Unless you have a sanitation issue and you happen to have a dangerous mold species that makes its way into your beer and then you drink that mold. You’re really not going to have any sort of toxins.

4. It takes a really long time to make your own homebrewed beer

It takes a full day to brew it. And it takes 2 weeks to ferment. It takes 2 weeks to bottle condition. And then it’s just not good because you have to let it age in the bottles. However, there is a plethora of beers and techniques to make them within a week. Brewing technology and methods have evolved so much over the last 20 years that waiting around for a long time isn’t really a thing anymore.

5. Homebrewers are alcoholics/make and drink too much beer

It kind of tends to make people think that we’re drinking way too much for our own good. The reality is most of us even though we brew 5 or 10 gallons at a time we’re giving a lot of that beer away. And for the most part, a lot of us are actually keeping our beer on tap for a long time. One of the best things about this hobby is being able to share it with other people.
