Home Brew




  1. Put water in 5-gallon or larger size crock. Add yeast, malt and sugar. Stir well until sugar and malt are dissolved and no longer gummy on bottom of crock. Cover crock with clean towel and set in warm place for 3 days, skimming top occasionally to remove foam.
  2. After the 3rd day, bubbling should have slowed somewhat, but it may take longer, depending on cool weather conditions or if you used water that is not warm enough. With crock on table, siphon the brew with tubing into 24 (1-quart) bottles on floor, trying to get as little as possible of the sediment from bottom of crock. Fill bottles about 2/3 full. Cap bottles (caps and bottle capper available at hardware stores), and let stand for 2 or 3 days, then refrigerate.

Yield: 24 quarts

Flavor is improved if allowed to stand about a week. When pouring into glasses, take care not to pour sediment from bottom of bottles.
