As discussed on the ingredients page, the amount of certain ingredients, such as hops or malt, that are added to brews, determines the sweetness and bitterness of the beer. There are many different kinds of beers out there, and several recipes for each given kind.

Recipes can be found all over the internet. Some can be found free of cost, while others are available for purchase, along with ingredient kits for the recipes.

A good site to purchase recipes and ingredient kits is Bx Beer Depot, which is a South Florida owned and operated brewing supply store. They have kits that range in price from around $30 to about $65, depending on the kit.
