How long does beer brewing take?

For a basic batch of beer, it takes about a month before the beer is ready to drink.  Of course, this is just a ballpark number.  The actual time depends on the type of beer you're making.  Here are the key steps, and about how long each one takes.

  • Brewing: 2 Hours
  • Fermentation: 2 weeks
  • Bottling: 1 Hour
  • Bottle Conditioning to allow beer to carbonate: 2-4 Weeks
  • Cool and drink beer:  varies (how fast do you drink?)  🙂
