Here is a small quote : Working from 9-5 you often are sitting and hardly moving, by standing you actually burn 50 calories per hour. If you work for an average of 7 hours a day that 350 calories just by standing.
Walk instead of sitting
Wanting to catch up with a friend for a coffee, get it to go and go for a walk around the suburb. A 20-minute walk burns 100 calories…..

Pitch Enough Yeast
Having plenty of healthy yeast is crucial, and most 5 gallon batches of beer require more than one package of liquid yeast for an adequate number of yeast cells. I use Mr. Malty’s Pitching Rate Calculator to determine how many yeast cells I’ll need in each batch. To get the appropriate cell count, you have the option of pitching multiple packages of liquid yeast, making a yeast starter, or pitching a single package of dry yeast.
Pitching multiple packets of liquid yeast is expensive, so in general I’d advise to avoid that route. Making a yeast starter isn’t difficult, but requires some planning in advance of brew day. If you don’t have the Erlenmeyer flask mentioned in the link above, you can use a sanitized growler to grow up the starter after boiling your starter wort in an ordinary pot.
The final option is dry yeast, which contains a much greater number of cells than a single package of liquid yeast. One of the drawbacks of dry yeast is there are fewer options available. However, a standard American ale yeast (such as Fermentis Safale US-05) or English ale yeast (such as Safale US-04) should do the trick for most entry-level recipes.
Get the big(ger) kettle.
Like many of my fellow homebrewers, my first significant purchase was a starter equipment kit. Once I had it, all I needed was a brew kettle and ingredients, and I was good to go. So, I bought a 5-gallon stainless steel kettle for $35. Stupid. It took only 2 weeks of brewing before I dropped another $70 on a 7.5-gallon kettle. If you ever plan to get into all-grain brewing or want to reduce the likelihood that your kettle will boil over, splurge for the big kettle right out of the gate. You’ll be saving money in the long run. Learn more about selecting a brew kettle.
