Before brewing homemade beer Important Read First
Before setting out to brew your first beer, please sanitize everything.with soap and water then bleach and water and rinse everything well of any residue bleach and soap.
also when finished using everything clean it right away, dont ever let anything sit anywhere too harden food residue on it, get it when it is easy to clean and therefore sanitize it well. buy a bottle brush also. If in doubt of how clean a bottle is then clean it good with a bottle brush scrubbing. don't towel dry anything shake it out and let air dry. If you want to towel dry then use a newly dried towel not just an old one sitting around in kitchen or anywhere else.
People in the past years had to be cleanly for a reason and they never complained about it, they just did it and they knew that they had too or there brew would taste weird. Technology today, not like it is bad. it is an awesome thing technology, just want to say people take all the ease of stores we have for shopping for granted and nobody ever creates much foods from scratch themselves no more. Same as today when making things do a good job and be proud to do a good job, don't be a filthy bastard. have some dignity and do it to perfection.
Brewing homemade beer from scratch. Simple
In Honor of the closing in on St. Patricks Day, an Irish Holiday, I am doing an article on home brewing beer. Now if you want to color this beer green I suppose you have to pour in some green food dye or something like that. Creating beer gives your creativity an outlet of enjoyment and a cinch to do. beer requires an easy recipe that don't cost much at all. Throw in unique tastes of any flavor from berries to apple, alternate grains for thickness and taste.
Beer ferments and has a smell, not a bad smell, just only that of beer. And those you live with can be a problem to your brewery. try to find an area to do this or throw your friend or whoever it is out. Nothing shall get in thy way of your brewski. Nothing is staying in the way of an alcoholic that's for sure.
Now its time to stagger around and find a few basic things to make the suds. Drink six 2 liters of pop and wash and save them, including the caps. buy a 5 gallon food safe plastic bucket with a removable cover or a cowboy with a funnel. A 5 or 6 foot siphon hose with clamp, a thermometer. and conclude with a large pot and hydrometer. For around $ 40.00 to $80.00 You can search out these items at liquor stores that sell brewers equipment, Hardware outlet or restaurant supply shop.
Ingredients and Instructions
Now the inebriant needs ingredients so lets go locate these little troublemakers.
First off, Malt Extract, either purchase light, dark or stout in a 40 oz. canister. Then 1/2 teaspoon of regular brewer's yeast and the brew only takes a little of this.
3-4 cups of white granulated sugar.
Bring in the 5 gallon bucket and fill it up with 1.4 gallons of cold water while at the same time you boil 3.7 quarts of water in the large pot.
Cover immediately with a lid on loosely so it don't explode from pressure build up of fermented gases. No opening lid for 6 days, you want to leave it alone and forget about it, only keep the temperature in your building at between 62 and 68 degrees *F for the most excellent beer.
Cast into the boiling water 20 ounces of malt extract and stir and boil for 20 minutes, then stir in sugar until ultimately liquefied. Rapidly spill the concoction into bucket (or carboy with funnel) of cold water. Begin gradually adding cold water to the beer medley until thermometer reads room temperature at 68 degrees fahrenheit. Speckle in the brewer's yeast and stir a good one.
Bottling the Brewski
After the 6 days of waiting are over take out hydrometer and clean it well first before placing in the beer. A reading of 1.008 for light and 1.010-1.015 for darker is what your looking for if not put the lid back on and wait 2 more days and then the big bucket of booze is ready for bottling.
Sanitize bottles, place bucket of Ale on stable even table top and never shake or tip or it will flatten the taste. Now lay out the six 2-liter bottles on floor on top of something to absorb any spills such as a towel. Give one level teaspoonful of regular white granulated sugar to individual bottles.
Siphon the beer into each bottle using siphon and clamp. Be careful not to touch the sugar with siphon as it can suck up into the siphon and we do not want that. Hold siphon hose close to the side of the bottle to deter any froth or foam from developing that will make the brew taste screwy and allow beer to expand in bottles by leaving an empty space of air near the top of bottle.
Lastly Cap the bottles mighty tight, then shake them to dissolve the sugar at the bottom, place in warm dark area for two or three days then transfer to a cool sunless room where there is no light. After four days the beer is ready for drinking. The brew will keep fresh and healthy for a long time in a cool dark space.
