Here’s How To Brew Your Own Beer – A Beginner’s Guide

The number of home brewers is growing across America. Brewing homemade beer is also cheap and more satisfying than paying for another drink. Besides, creating beer is a talent, and everybody is happier when they are chugging down their own beer. These are the steps that people can follow to make homemade brew.
Prepare

A home brewer’s first mission is to choose a day when they have plenty of time. They’ll have less fun making beer if they have time pressure. Start with a neat and tidy kitchen, and have all the equipment and ingredients prepared. Always remember to take plenty of time because making beer is fun.
Steep
the
Grains

Put the grains into a grain bag and placed them in a large stock container in 10 liters of hot water for about 30 minutes. Remove the grains and let the water drip out of the container. Do not squeeze it because extract tannins may give the beer an astringent flavor.

Boil

The hops are usually combined at different intervals to add bitterness, aroma and flavor. Times will be specified on the instruction brochure for a particular kind of beer. After the liquid is boiled, it must be cooled as quickly as possible by putting the whole container in a sink or bath tub full of ice water.
Put

Cooled
Liquid
into
the
Fermenter

Splashing is encouraged before fermentation starts and the wort has cooled. Splashing the wort provides oxygen that the yeast needs as it is poured into the fermenter. After fermentation has begun, exposure to the air must be minimized to prevent unintended aromas and flavors. Use a large strainer to get the hops out. At the same time, add water to make 20 gallons in order to add the yeast. The lid must be placed back on the fermenter after adding the yeast. Place the fermenter in a dark place that has a consistent room temperature in order to ferment properly. After 24 hours, brewers will notice the container bubbling away. This shows that the fermenting process is done properly.
Bottling

After one week or so, airlock activity will slow. That means the beer is ready for bottling. Dried malt extract or priming sugar comes with the home brewing kit. This is mixed to provide carbonation once the beer is inside the bottle. Use a little water to cool the sugar. Then, add it to the fermented beer in a clean and empty sanitized bucket.

Use the sanitized plastic tubing found in the bucket as a siphon. This will enable the brewer to transfer the beer with little or no aeration. After that, attach the sanitized bottle filler to the clean plastic tubing. The bottom part of the spigot should attach to the end of the tubing. It is vital to let the beer settle after mixing it with the priming sugar solution. Fill each bottle until it just starts to overflow. After that, remove the bottle filler. Removing this will provide a perfect space at the upper part of the bottle. A handy bottle capper should be used to cap the bottle. Repeat until every bottle is full. Age the brew for a week or two at room temperature and refrigerate. When ready, open a bottle and pour it slowly and carefully into a glass. Leave a quarter inch because the sediments tastes a bit yeasty.

Making homemade beer is fun. It is also a great way for people to spend their free time. Additionally, it could be an extra source of income if they are good at it. Bottoms up!
