For those customers who are "homebrewing" enthusiasts, or simply curious about hom brewing, here are a few tips from our Brewmaster, Derrick Morse...
1 Sanitation is vital to brewing great beer! Make sure everything that comes into contact with the beer has been sanitized
2 Do a full wort boil. This will give you better hop utilization, a better hot break, and better flavor extraction
3 Use a good quality yeast strain and pitch enough of it to ensure a complete fermentation. Grow a yeast starter if necessary
4 Control your fermentation temperatures. To properly do a lager style beer you may need to buy a used refrigerator with an external thermostat
5 Do not pitch your yeast until you have chilled the wort properly
6 Avoid hot side aeration of the wort by being gentle with it during sparging and the boil
7 As you gain more experience begin doing all grain brews, this is the only way to have complete control of your recipes
8 Homebrewing is a great and rewarding hobby, so have fun!!!
