Steep Grains: Pour 2.5 gallons of clean water into your brew pot and begin to heat. Pour crushed grains into grain bag and tie a loose knot at the top of the bag. When the water is within an appropriate steeping temperature (150Âº - 165ÂºF) place the grain bag into the brew pot.
Steep grains for approximately 20 minutes. Remove grain bag and without squeezing, allow liquid to drain back into brew pot. Your water is now wort.
Start boil: Bring your wort to a gentle, rolling boil. Add all of the included LME,DME and all of the corn sugar (it is not necessary to save sufficient sugar for bottling as indicated on the corn sugar label) to the
boiling wort Continuously stir the extract into the wort as it returns to a gentle, rolling boil
We suggest doing a 2.5 gallon boil at minimum. If you have the equipment to boil more than 2.5 gallons feel free to do so. There is no need to change the amount of any of the ingredients.
The grains should not be compacted inside the bag. Grains should steep loosely allowing the hot water to soak into all of the grain evenly
