Typically, people make small home brews, and so if you are planning on making a large home brew, then there are several pointers that you are absolutely going to want to take into consideration.
Most people only plan on making a large home brew if they are having a lot of people over or if they are planning to store most of the brew away so that they can use it in the future, and both of these reasons are acceptable. For any other reasons you would probably be best just to stick with making smaller more frequent brews.
As with most other things in life, the bigger you want something to be, the more time and effort it takes. The same principle applies to home brewing. So if you do not have a lot extra of all of these, then perhaps you should just reconsider.
Another thing that you are going to want to think about before making a large home brew is the fact of whether you have the space to do it. As with a small home brew, a large home brew can be made in a standard sized kitchen. The difference with a making a large home brew is that you may have to temporarily clear out of the way any none essential items.
After all you are going to need more room in the fridge, in the sink and on the countertop in general, and you certainly do not want to get started first and then realize that unfortunately you do not have enough room for everything and that you are thus in big trouble.
If you do not have sufficient space in your kitchen, then there are basically two options that you have; either you make a series of smaller brews one after the other, or you give a fellow beer lover a percentage of the finished product in return for them giving you the use of their kitchen.
Having found your space to brew your large batch of beer, all that remains is the actual brewing of it. Just make sure that you increase the quantities of the ingredients in equal measures.
