BREWING METHODS

You will need to make slight changes to the way you make your beer when using these recipes.

      In most cases, all you need to do is add a couple of simple steps when you are preparing the

beer  wort. After that you continue making the beer in the usual way.

 

       METHOD #1

1.      Mix all the ingredients together in the fermenter with 3 4 litres of hot water.

2.      Add cold water up to 23 litre mark and stir well.

3.      When the temperature is below 30 deg C. add the yeast and make your beer in the usual way.

      METHOD #2

1.      Gently boil the hop pellets in 1 litre of water for 10 minutes.

2.      Mix the boiled hops and water with other ingredients in the fermenter together with 2 3 litres of hot water.

3.      Add cold water up to the 23 litre mark and stir well.

4.      When the temperature is below 30 deg C. add the yeast and make your beer the usual way.

       METHOD #3

1.        Mix the cracked grains with about 1 litre of water and bring to the boil.

2.        Boil gently for 20 minutes then add the hop pellets and turn the heat off at the same time.

Let the hot mixture stand for about 10 minutes.

3.    Pour the hot mixture through a fine strainer into the fermenter.

Gently pour some hot water through the collected grain to rinse all the goodness into the fermenter.

4.        Add the other ingredients to the fermenter plus some hot water if necessary and mix thoroughly.

6.        When the temperature is below 30 deg C. add the yeast and make your beer the usual way.
