Making Beer

 

So that you can see how simple it is to make homemade beer, here is a quick overview of the 5 step process.

1. Sterilise all the brewing equipment, especially the beer bottles.
2. Mix the beer kit and yeast sachet with the required amount of sugar and water. Store in a warm place until the brew has fermented (usually about 7 days).
3. Decant the fermented brew into sterilised bottles, adding a teaspoon of sugar to each bottle. Put caps on bottles and store in a warm place for 2 weeks to enable secondary fermentation.
4. Transfer bottles into a cool place for a further 4 weeks to allow the beer to mature.
5. After refrigerating a bottle of beer, sit back and relax with your own homemade beer!
