Ingredients:

  1. 2.25 Oz of East Kent Goldings Hops – Hops will add bitterness to your beer.  Pellets are most common and easy to store.  Keep your unused hops in the freezer in airtight bags for keeping aroma.
  2. Six lbs of Unhopped Pale Malt Extract – It purchased in cans that are around 3 lbs each.  Malt provides the sweet base that the yeast will feed on to make alcohol.  Available from various manufacturers.  Dry malt extract is an acceptable alternative.
  3. 2/3 cup Priming Sugar – We will use corn sugar.  It is available from your brew store or grocer.
  4. One Package of American Ale liquid Yeast.  Liquid yeast gives very high quality beer.

Equipment:

  1. A Bottle Filler – Available from your homebrew store – should be sized to fit on the end of  your siphon tubing.
  2. A Large Pot – At least 3 gallons in size, though a larger one will generally result in fewer spills.
  3. A Sanitizing solution – Beer is prone to infection, so everything must be sanitized before use. Household bleach can be used, but it must be thoroughly rinsed to prevent contamination.  Your brew store may have alternatives such as iodophor and starsan.
  4. Tubing & Clamp – To siphon and bottle the beer- A six foot section of 3/8″ ID food grade plastic tubing will work.
  5. An Airtight Fermenting Bucket – A five gal plastic bucket with lid, or a glass carboy.  Better to purchase a glass carboy as they are easier to keep sanitized and don’t leak.  If you get a carboy you may need a large bottle brush to clean it.
  6. A Bottle Capper – A hand driven device to cap your bottles also available from your homebrew store.
  7. An Air Lock and Stopper – Sized to fit your fermenter.
  8. A Thermometer – A floating thermometer with a range of 0-100 C or up from 32-220 F
  9. Bottles – You need two cases in 12 oz bottles to bottle five gallons of beer.
  10. Bottle Brush –  A small brush to get your bottles clean.
  11. Bottle Caps – New bottle caps sold at your brewing supplier – you need about 50 caps for a five gal batch

Wort in Beer

uncategorized producing beer  %tages Wort in BeerWort is the liquid produced from the mashing process during the brewing of beer. Wort has the sugars that will be fermented by the brewing yeast to extract alcohol.

The initial step in wort production is to create malt from dried, sprouted barley. The malt is ground into grist.

The grist is mashed, after this, mixed with hot water and steeped, a complex and slow heating process that starts enzymes to convert the starch in the malt into sugars. At set intervals, most notably when the mixture has reached temperatures of 43 °C, 61 °C, and 77 °C, the heating is briefly halted. The temperature of the mixture is increased to 80 °C for mash-out.

Brewpubs

A brewpub is a pub or restaurant that brews beer on the premises. Some brewpubs, such as those in Germany, have been brewing traditionally on the premises for hundreds of years.

History of brewpubs in the world:

The trend toward larger brewing companies started to change during the 1970s when the popularity of the Campaign for Real Ale campaign for traditional brewing methods encouraged brewers in the UK to form their own small brewpubs.

In America the first American brewpub opened in 1982 but the growth since then has been speeded up: the Association of Brewers reports that in 2008 there were 1591 regional brewpubs in the United States.

Opposite to the most of countries, traditional brewpub or Brauhaus remains a main source of beer in Germany.
