Brew Beer in 7 Steps
It's not as easy as one, two, three—but we'll still get you there in no time!
1. Heat Water
Start with 7.5 gallons of water and let it heat until roughly 159F.
Mashing means adding grain to the heated water and letting it simmer.
Lift the basket to remove the grains and keep the liquid which is now called wort or sugary water.
Extract key flavors by boiling your liquid. This is where you'll add your hops.
Cool your wort to prepare for fermenting.
Transfer your wort into your fermenter. Add yeast and let it sit for two weeks.
Add a carbonation tablet, fill bottles with a bottling wand, cap it and after two weeks, these will be ready to drink!
Let's walk through the basics of brewing, fermenting, bottling, packaging and more!
