Well I decided I'd start making my own beer. Since im a "DIY'er" i figured why not make my own beer. I hit up my local homebrew supply store and picked up a "stg2 kit" lol and ingredients for a amber ale called "South By South Wheat."

Let's get brew'in!


The basic supplies: bigggg as pot, big ass spoon, thermometer, hydrometer, 5gallon bucket.


I used a 20quart pot filled with 2gallons of water at 160*f
added in 1lb flaked wheat and 2 3/4lbs. of row malt


45minutes at 160*f. put silk bag of wheat/malt in a strainer and pour 1.5L of 170*f water over it into the pot. add 1gallon of water and boil.


Added 1oz of hops at a boil for 60minutes. last 15minutes added in 1/2oz of hops and last 5minutes added another 1/2oz of hops.



Transfer the big ass pot into a sink full of water and ice to cool down from a boil to 80*f within 20minutes. then pour into a 5gallon bucket. yes it looks like the aftermath of a bad night of mexican food, but during fermentation it will clear up a lot and the doo doo will sink to the bottom)


Add yeast. my recipe called for American hefeweizen. keep refrigerated until 24hrs prior to use, store at 70*f for 24hrs before use.


Put the lid on and fill your airlock 1/3 of the way up with water. this allows the mixture the churn and produce CO2 which will allow the yeast to eat up the sugar in the wort getting rid of unwanted proteins and to ferment into ALCOHOL! store in a cool dark place for 5-7.


Well that's where I'm at so far. I'll update this thread in 5-7 days! Woot woot, Nick has 5gallons of beer in his closet and you dont woot wooooot! lol

well i know it goes on sale all the time and tit was about 20 bucks last time i saw it at harbor freight. on there site it's $40 but still way less than you spend and if we dont like it it's not much of a loss to us.

I've been doing this recently as well. Just bottled up my second batch which I will dub "weird ass wheat experiment #1". I hope it turns out well. Next on the list is a Pale Ale and a BIG double red or something like that.

my beer came out good and it only took me like 3 weeks to make and its done right. i think you should learn how to keg. its not that hard and you have ready to drink beer in just a couple extra days instead of having to wait 3 exrta weeks. plus you need to get a condtioning bucket for better taste. trust me you will learn through ttrail and error. i just had someone that knew what they were doing to guide me along. my pops
