About Brewin’ My Own


Hi, I’m Aidan living in Nelson, New Zealand. This blog is mainly about my adventures and learnings in home brewing as well as just a place for me to keep a record of my brews.

I started home brewing in late 2010. My first 2 brews were straight up kit brews and I was quite impressed at how they turned out. Then I started playing with hops and grains and became totally fascinated with making beer. I got great results from stove-top partial mash brewing but eventually got the equipment together to allow me to do all-grain brewing using the BIAB (brew in a bag) system.

    i have only just discovered your site and have not yet read much… but i am most impressed and i appreciate your interests!

    i recently started home brewing myself and a couple of years ago i bought a house and dramatically landscaped the gardens and planted a variety of spectacular plants. i am yet to buy a hop plant though!

    my only disappointment is that it your site is not “beerandgardenand fishing”


    look forward to some good reading.

    good work!
