2. Fermenting: Cool the fermenter in an ice-bath. When the temperature reaches 24-26°C (for ale) or 14-16°C (for lager), add the yeast. Place the fermenter away from direct sunlight maintaining 20-23°C (for lager, 10-12°C) temperature. Leave it undisturbed for 7 days.Buy Fermenting Kits
3. Bottling: Clean and sanitize the bottles and Add priming sugar to each of them. Pour fermented beer into the bottles and seal them air-tight.Buy Bottling Equipment Kits

2: The Brewing:
1. Steeping grains – Fill half your brewing kettle with water (for a 19 litre (~5 Gallon) boiling vessel, use 9.5 litres of water). Place the grain bag inside the water as you heat it. Let the grains steep for 20 mins or till the water is heated to 170 degree Celsius.
Lift the bag from the kettle and remove it when most of the water drains out of it naturally. Do not squeeze the bag. This will release unwanted tannins.
2. Boil the solution in the kettle – Once it comes to a rolling boil, take the kettle off the burner to add the malt extracts. Mix to dissolve the extracts well and place it back to boil.
Next step is to add the Hops. Check the recipe to know when to add them exactly and for how long you’ll need to boil it.
3. Your wort is now ready! Cool it down fastBuy Brewing Equipment
3: Fermentation: Clean and sanitize everything you use from this step onwards to avoid contaminating and spoiling your brew batch.
1. Transfer the cooled down wort into the fermenter.
2. Add enough water to bring the level to about 19 litres.
3. Splash or stir the wort inside the container. This allows oxygen to mix well which is needed by the yeast.
4. Now, add the yeast to the fermenter. Dry yeast (in powdered form) is the easiest to use. Sanitize both the pack and the scissors you’ll use and empty the contents into the wort.
5. Seal the fermenter with a stopper and insert an airlock over it. Keep the fermenter in a cool dark place and don’t move it till the fermentation is complete. Also check that the recommended temperature for the beer you are brewing is maintained.Buy Brewing Equipment
4: Bottling: Fermentation takes about two weeks to complete. After this, you can move to the next step which is – Bottling.
1. Sanitize and keep ready – bottles, caps, bottler filler, transfer hoses, buckets – everything you’ll use here.
2. Boil the priming sugar in 500ml of water and prepare the solution. Let it cool down and then add to the bottling bucket directly.
3. Use the auto siphon and transfer the beer from the fermenter to the bucket. Leave the sediment in the fermenter itself.
4. To fill the bottles, connect one end of the transfer tube to the bottle filler and the other end to the bottling bucket’s tap. Open the tap and press the filler tip against the bottom of the bottle. This will start the beer flow into the bottle.
Once the bottle is filled to the top, remove the filler and move to the next bottle and repeat the process.
5. Seal the bottles with caps using a bottle capper.
6. Keep the bottles away in a dark place for another two weeks. This will carbonate the beer or make it fizzy.Buy Brewing Equipment
