We carry supplies for making beer, wine, soda, mead, and cheese. We have many books and magazines, and a collection of recipes that you can look through and take home with you. We also sell unique gifts for beer and wine lovers. See our event calendar for regular classes and demonstrations on how to make beverages and fermented foods at home.
We choose the affordable, Energy Star efficient Danby DAR440BL compact refrigerator. This fridge will not accomodate a full size sanke keg, but works great for two 5 gallon cornelius kegs (which you can fill with homebrew or beer from your local brewery). Compactness, affordability, and efficiency were our main goals here.

What to Expect
Naturally-made, or craft cider is quite dry. It is not sweet because the yeast, left to do its job, will consume most of the sugar in the juice. Many commercial ciders are "back sweetened". This consists of killing and stabilizing the yeast (using preservatives, heat, and/or filtering), and then adding sugar.
Choosing your Juice
We will consider using apples (cider) and pears (perry) in this article, but you can use the methods here with other fruit, for example plums.
Leather beer carriers for your bicycle. Affordable conical fermenters. CNC Laser-cut wooden six-pack carriers. Freshly-printed T-Shirts. Starter kits.

We are finally starting our brew club! Hooray! Lady Brew Portland is designed to encourage women on their way to becoming better homebrewers. All levels of brewer are welcome to participate.
Join us and experience the creativity and satisfaction of making your own beer and hanging out with other awesome beer-curious ladies.
26 years ago, homebrewers got their own holiday, and Homebrew Exchange is here to help you celebrate. This year, we will be hosting an American Homebrewers Association Big Brew event at our location (6550 N Interstate Ave, Portland, OR) on May 3, 2014 from 10 am- 4 pm. This event is an opportunity to unite brewers, non-brewers, friends and family in a nationwide celebration of the creativity and ingenuity that homebrewers demonstrate in every batch.
