Homebrew made easy...perfect beer every time
Brewbarrel has thought of the complete home brewing process, so that it is now possible to brew your own beer at home without the expensive sourcing of equipment and bottles, it also ensures that your kitchen will remain clean and tidy. Brewing beer doesn’t have to be hard. See for yourself:
With Brewbarrel you can successfully brew your own beer after just a few quick short steps. Every single Brewbarrel home brewing kit contains a five litre keg, a bottle of Malt Extract, a sachet of Beer Yeast, a bottle of Hop Aroma (up to three different natural Aromas depending on your order), three beer coasters and an instruction manual. The Step – by – Step instructions will explain all and the Pre – Measured ingredients will ensure that the preparation of your beer for fermentation is fast and easy.
Preparing the Beer Wort
Firstly, pour the malt extract into the keg. The Malt Extract that you will receive is already processed and ready for use having been produced from shredded barley. We have prepared the Malt Extract in this way so that it is best suited to the purpose of home brewing. We boil the shredded barley so that we can easily extract the sugars from the grain that are needed to produce beer. We further boil this solution to reducing it to the thick and sticky consistency that you will receive. This is called wort concentrate or better known perhaps as Malt Extract. It contains exactly the same ingredients as a beer wort that you would find in an traditional brewery except that it contains less water. Because of this the Malt Extract will last a very long time (much like a jam or a marmalade) and is perfectly portioned for brewing with the Brewbarrel Homebrewing Kit.
When you pour the malt extract into your Brewbarrel, you must then dilute the mixture with hot water to make it more soluble and viscous. To do this you can use the empty malt extract bottle as a measuring cup with the help of the marked indicators on its label. Closing the keg it is important to shake the mixture with hot water in order to appropriately dissolve the malt extract. This step is necessary for a desired end result and allows you to proceed with the following steps.
