Understanding the process was probable the thing that held me back the most before I started. I just couldn’t believe it could be that simple.

  1. Mix beer kit with hot water to dissolve.
  2. Add cold water as per instruction
  3. Stir in yeast
  4. Seal with airlock and store for 4-6 days

Then you wait until the airlock stop producing bubbles, and then you transfer to your pressure barrel or bottles, with a little sugar and wait again for 14 days or so.

I found this video helpful. Although I dint use this specific kit, it did give me a good idea of what is involved. In other research I spoke to a few micro brewers who insisted that “as long as everything is sterile, you could probably get away with getting a few other bits wrong”
