THIS KIT INCLUDES YOUR FIRST 2 GALLON RECIPE.

CRAFT BEER BREWING KIT EXTRA

More and more Americans realized that Big Beer all tastes the same so they started the Craft Beer Revolution. Now you can have beer that has flavor by brewing it yourself with your own Craft Beer Kit Extra.

This kit includes one of our most popular Craft Series Plus recipes. This is an all malt beer, coming in at around 4.6% ABV, smooth going down and lightly hopped. You’ll enjoy knocking this back. Beer is not for sitting and sipping. That’s tea. (A different Revolution.)

Speaking of Revolution, that best describes the world’s first (patented) small batch conical fermenter which is included with this kit. It allows you to brew batch after batch and always with great results. It’s designed that way.

The other extra (besides the extra malt) is a full set of logoed PET bottles, caps, 18" heat tolerant plastic mixing spoon and a professional bottle filler system. When you’re a pro you need professional equipment and a professional looking finished product. That’s why this kit’s for you.

Once your friends see your bottled brew, they’re going to want some. Guard this beer! Store it in a dark, cool place away from greedy eyes. Send them to us and they can make their own. If they beg, maybe give them a kit as the gift that keeps on giving.

2 GALLON BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

 

Step 1: Sanitize Your Equipment

This is the most important step in the brewing process. It kills any bacteria, wild yeast and mold that can cause off-flavors in your beer. It’s important to sanitize everything that comes in contact with your beer. This step should take about 15 minutes.

  • 1.1. In a container, dissolve half (1 tbsp) of the One Step No-Rinse Cleanser into a gallon of warm water. Shake until the cleanser has completely dissolved. Note: Save the remaining One Step for bottling.
  • 1.2. Pour solution into the fermenter, screw on the lid and place your venting plug into its hole. Cover venting plug and swirl the solution around making sure it contacts the entire inside surface including the lid. Do this step over the sink
  • 1.3. Open and close the tap several times to sanitize the inner surface.
  • 1.4. Place your mixing spoon(s), measuring cup and can opener* inside the fermenter. Careful not to scratch the inside surface. Allow it to soak a minimum of 10 minutes.
  • 1.5. Remove utensils and place them on a clean paper towel or a sanitized plate or bowl. Drain fermenter (no rinsing required). Note: Solution is reusable, you can use it again to sanitize a blender or any other utensil used during the brewing process.
*If needed. Can opener must be sanitized before using.
 
Step 2: Making This Recipe

The included recipe is ready for fermentation, just add water and yeast (under the black lid of the extract). Since beer is mostly water, the better the water the better your beer. This step should take about 30 minutes.

  • 2.1. Fill your fermenter with a gallon of cold water. For best results, use bottled spring water or charcoal-filtered tap water.
  • 2.2. Remove yeast packet(s) from under the lid of your beer mix and stand both cans in a tub of hot tap water. This will help them pour more easily.
  • 2.3. Place 4 cups of water into a clean 3-quart pot and bring to a boil.
  • 2.4. Remove from heat. Then slowly stir in the contents from both cans until they have fully dissolved. This mixture is called the wort.
  • 2.5. Pour the wort into the fermenter. Bring the volume of the fermenter up to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more water. Mix thoroughly. Read the thermometer and wait until the temperature of the wort is between 64°- 82° F before adding the yeast.
  • 2.6. Add the yeast. Then attach your lid. (If using an airlock attach it now).
  • 2.7. Place the fermenter out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 7-14 days.
And Now You Wait

After 7 days the beer in your fermenter should have stopped fermenting and begun to clear. It's now time to bottle! If you're not sure, draw a small amount from the tap; if it tastes like flat beer, it's ready to bottle. If it tastes sweet, give it a few more days

 
Step 3: Carbonating Your Beer

Since nobody likes flat beer we need to add carbonation. It is normal for this process to create a small amount of yeast sediment at the bottom of each bottle. This step should take about 45 minutes.

  • 3.1. Dissolve the remaining One Step into a gallon of warm water. 
  • 3.2. Fill each bottle half full with solution, place caps on (just a few turns) and shake a few times. Allow them to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  • 3.3. Remove caps and empty bottles. No rinsing is required.
  • 3.4. Add 2-1/2 teaspoons of white granulated sugar to each bottle. If you’re using bottles other than what came with the kit, see the priming sugar chart above for the correct sugar amount.
  • 3.5. Using the tap, fill each bottle halfway up the base of the neck. Make sure all bottles contain approximately the same amount of beer. Remove venting plug or airlock (if used) for this step.
  • 3.6. Cap each bottle and invert them several times until the sugar has been completely dissolved. Do not shake  bottles.
  • 3.7. Place the bottles upright, out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 7 days.
EVERY COUPLE OF DAYS GIVE EACH BOTTLE A SQUEEZE. WHEN THEY BECOME FIRM TO THE TOUCH (LIKE A NEW 2-LITER BOTTLE OF SODA) AND THE BEER HAS CLEARED, THEY’RE READY FOR THE FRIDGE.
 
Step 4: Enjoying Your Beer!

After your beer has carbonated, it’s ready to drink! However, you can improve the flavor by bottle conditioning your beer. This can be done a couple ways:

  • Warm conditioning: Keep your bottles in a dark, dry location away from sunlight and maintain a temperature between 50°- 70° F for several weeks to a month.
  • Cold conditioning: Place your bottles in the refrigerator for several weeks to a month. 
WHETHER OR NOT YOU CHOOSE TO BOTTLE CONDITION YOUR BEER, IT WILL ALWAYS TASTE BETTER AFTER CHILLING IN THE REFRIGERATOR FOR AT LEAST 24 HOURS. THEN IT'S TIME TO CALL YOUR FRIENDS!
