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.

2. Mash

Mashing means adding grain to the heated water and letting it simmer.

3. Strain

Lift the basket to remove the grains and keep the liquid which is now called wort or sugary water.

4. Boil

Extract key flavors by boiling your liquid. This is where you'll add your hops.

5. Whirlpool

Cool your wort to prepare for fermenting.

6. Ferment

Transfer your wort into your fermenter. Add yeast and let it sit for two weeks.

7. Bottle

Add a carbonation tablet, fill bottles with a bottling wand, cap it and after two weeks, these will be ready to drink!
