Default An Englishman in Brazil

It's warmer than New York but probably more difficult to get equipment and ingredients.
If anyone has recipes for simple wines - no campden, peptic enzymes etc I would be grateful.
Ingredients for beer seem more available although equipment is very expensive. Any suggestions for starter kit improvised from stuff around the home would also be welcome.
Glad to be amongst you and hope to contribute with more posts later.

Hmm... if you have access to ingredients, the equipment shouldn't be a huge problem. If you can find an autosiphon, you're already in business. Even a basic hygenic siphon can be made from three pieces of tubing and a T-joint. If you don't have/can't get a hydrometer, you can substitute large amounts of patience.

Bucket + tinfoil = fermenter + airlock.

Bucket + spigot = bottling bucket

Let us know when questions pop up. If they haven't already been answered several times, we can usually help. If they have, we can point you in the right direction.

Welcome aboard!

Default Hello From Sao Paulo

Hi,

If you are in São Paulo you can buy ingredients with us from "ACerva Paulista", the brewers association of this state witch I am member of.

We buy barley, hops and yeast in big quantity then we share with member, this the easiest way to acquire home brew ingredients and material.

Feel free to write me, I will be glad to to help you.

Thanks,

Rene

Do you have access to any food grade buckets? Try resteraunts and bakeries, but don't get any that hold anything pickeled or briny....try stuff like soy sauce buckets from chinese joints, or frosting from bakeries. Or look around for 5 gallon water bottles, plastic or glass will work, you won't be able to brew fll five gaalon batches in them but you shold be able to get away with 4-4.5 gallon batches.

A lot of other stuff can be found in cooking and hardware store...funnels and things like that.

You can use HDPE water containers, such as the ones shown below, for fermentation.



If you use HDPE containers, you can also "no-chill", which eliminates the need for a wort chiller.

Hi. Going to Sao Paulo on Thursday, wondering if any of you could recommend where to go to meet/taste the brazilian beer brewing scene (such as micro breweries and brew pubs).
