Glossary & Acronyms

I constantly come across new terms and lingo when I’m brewing or just reading about beer. These terms were pretty foreign to me when I first got started and like anything else, took a while to get the hang of. The first term I learned was “wort” and once I started learning about brewing, I was bombarded with acronyms such as ABV, FG, OG, and so on. This list will constantly be improved and appended to. Here’s to you improving your beer knowledge… cheers!
