I’ve had lots of hobbies over the years but hopefully this one will stick. Last year I received a beer making kit for Christmas and it’s now September but I finally gave it a try. Here’s the process:
Step 1: Follow the directions for heating the ingredients. Since this was a kit, it was pretty easy to get the measurements right.
Step 2: Clean and sanitize all the equipment. This is very important. And then fill the jug.
Step 3: Let the yeast work. This was a two week process where this hid in the pantry and I would check on it until the yeast had worked it’s magic.
Step 4: Bottling day. Thanks to everyone who helped me collect bottle. Everything gets sanitized again.
Step 5: From the jug to the bottle. It was helpful to have an extra pair of hands for this step.
Step 6: Drop in the fizz and seal the bottles.
Step 7: Let it sit. Back in the pantry this beer did it’s thing and went from flat to fizzy. And then into the fridge.
Step 8: Taste. This beer was delicious. I’ve had some other friends weigh in and I’m excited for a successful first batch. Cheers!
