How does this work?
Citizen Brewers has commercial grade equipment specific for brewing. You will choose a recipe, or you can design one of your own. We will provide the ingredients specific to your batch of beer using a combination of liquid malt extract and specialty grains. You can also supply your own unique ingredients as well. Once you’ve brewed your beer, it will be transferred to a fermenting vessel and allowed two weeks to ferment into beer in a temperature-controlled environment, and then another two to three weeks to condition. You return to bottle your beer, which again takes about two hours. In addition, you can create custom labels for your beer.
How long does the brewing process take?
Plan on spending about 2 to 4 hours for the initial brewing process, and then an additional 2 hours to bottle the beer. There is about 4 to 6 weeks between brewing and bottling while the beer is fermenting and conditioning on-site in our temperature controlled environment.
How much does it cost to brew beer?
The cost per batch depends on which recipe you select (see our Beer Style page), but each batch ranges from $200 -$300, depending on if you bottle the beer, rent a keg, or provide your own keg or clean bottles.
How much beer will I take home?
Each batch of beer produces either one 50L keg or 72 22-ounce bottles (six cases).
How many people can brew together?
There is a maximum of 6 people per kettle (an additional fee of $15 per person applies beyond 6 people per beer), but with 8 kettles available we can accommodate larger parties if you reserve multiple kettles at once. You can even reserve the entire facility for events such as bachelor parties, birthday parties, team-building events – you name it!
