Plan one day for the actual brewing and three to five weeks for fermentation and maturation of the beer. It is important to put emphasis on good quality when purchasing the ingredients.
You will need:
- A mix of ground malted grains (or malted grains and your own grinder)
- Drinking water
Furthermore, the setting and equipment should be prepared prior to starting to avoid stress with moving things during the brewing process.
This is the basic equipment you should have:
- Recipe/brewing protocol
- Brew kettle
- High-voltage power outlet
- Big wooden spoon
- Food-safe barrels
- Glass bottlesFunnels in different sizes
- Measuring device to determine the wort extract/alcohol content.
It is essential to have a good recipe (some can be found here) and the right grain mix and hops type for it.
