With the help of my two underaged assistants JMan and GMan I finally got around to making the beer kit I got last year.
Jess gave me the kit and it’s from the Brooklyn Brew Shop. The kit includes everything you need bar a few kitchen items.
This stage is like making oatmeal. Add grain to water, stir every 15 minutes for 1 hour and keep within a certain temp. Keeping the temp was hard so I found it easier to remove from heat and replace when I noticed it dropping.
Strain the mash into a pot. Boil 1 gallon of water and pour over mash 2 or 3 times.
Two strainers and a size large pot should work.
Mash in strainer.
Boil 1 gallon of water and pour over mash, repeat 2 to 3 times.
This part is fairly easy. Boil the Wort for 1 hour and all the good stuff.
Like any good resturant if you knew what went on in the kitchen you’d most likely eat at home. This brew does not look too good but it looks just like the video on The Brooklyn BrewShop web site. So I must be doing something good.
JMan add the Hops.
Fill your sink with ice and cool down the Wort to 70 degrees.
Add Yeast, this is called Pitching, shake, cap, add blowoff tube, insert other end in a sanitized bowl.
Keep somewhere dark for 3 days.
Check back in 3 Days for more!
