Into the homebrewing trend? We’ve got Every man his own brewer, a small treatise, explaining the art and mystery of brewing porter, ale, and table-beer; recommending and proving the ease and possibility of every man’s brewing his own porter, ale and beer, in any quantity. From one peck to an hundred bushels of malt. Calculated to reduce the expence of a family, and lessen the destructive practice of public-house tippling, by exposing the deception in brewing (they did titles a little differently back then).
