Ingredients

STEP 1: Mix

The Day Before: Line a pot (at least 4 litres) with a mesh cleaning cloth (pulled straight from the pack).
Place the grain in a plastic zip-lock sandwich bag and crack them using a rolling pin.
Add the cracked grain and 2 litres of cold water, fit the lid and sit in the fridge overnight.
Brew Day: Remove from the fridge then gather up the corners of the mesh cloth and lift, allowing the liquid to drain from the grains back into the pot.
Place the strained liquid onto the stovetop, bring to the boil then remove from the heat.
Cool the liquid by placing the pot in a bath of cold water for about 15mins.
Add all the fermentable ingredients and the cooled liquid to the fermenting vessel (FV) then stir to dissolve.
Fill the FV with cold water to the 8.5 litre mark.
This brew is likely to produce a lot of foam. We suggest you fit the Krausen Kollar.
Sprinkle the London ESB yeast and brew can yeast then fit the lid.

STEP 2: Brew

Place the FV in a location out of direct sunlight and try to ferment at 18 - 20C.
Fermentation should take 7 to 10 days.
 At around day 7, check the Specific Gravity (SG)
Check the SG again the following day and so on.

STEP 3: Bottle

The brew is ready once the SG has stabilised over a couple of days, expect about 1008 to 1012.
Gently fill clean PET bottles to about 3cm from the top.
Add 2 carbonation drops per bottle and secure the caps (only one drop per bottle may be preferred for this style).
Store the bottles upright in a location out of direct sunlight at or above 18C.

STEP 4: Enjoy!

After at least two weeks, check for sufficient carbonation by squeezing the bottles.
Bottles kept unrefrigerated should improve with bottle age.
When ready to drink, chill the bottles upright.
The chilled beer may be poured into clean glassware, leaving the sediment behind.
Expect the alcohol content to be approximately 6.6% ABV.
