Brewing Instructions for Black Rock BIB Crafted Lager

Preparation:

  1. Sanitise all equipment and utensils. Ensuring cleanliness is paramount for a successful brew.

  2. Heat 3 litres of water in a large pot to around 25°C (77°F).

Brewing:

  1. Pour the contents of the Black Rock BIB Crafted Lager malt extract into the pot of preheated water. Stir well until fully dissolved.

  2. Transfer this mixture into your fermentation vessel.

  3. Top up the fermenter with cold water to the 23-litre mark (5 UK gallons).

  4. Stir vigorously to aerate the mixture; this encourages healthy yeast activity.

  5. Check the temperature of the mixture (known as the 'wort'). Aim for a temperature between 18-20°C (64-68°F).

Adding Yeast:

  1. Sprinkle the included yeast packet evenly over the surface of the wort.

  2. Seal your fermenter and fit it with an airlock. Place it in a location with a consistent temperature, ideally between 10-15°C (50-59°F), for fermentation.

Fermentation:

  1. Allow the wort to ferment for 14-21 days. Use a hydrometer to check the specific gravity. Once it is steady for 48 hours, fermentation is likely complete.

Conditioning:

  1. After fermentation is complete, siphon the beer into a clean, sanitised secondary vessel, leaving the sediment behind.

  2. Store this vessel in a cool place for an additional 2-4 weeks. This process, known as lagering, allows the beer to clarify and the flavours to mature.

Bottling:

  1. After lagering, siphon the beer into a clean, sanitised bottling bucket, leaving sediment behind.

  2. Add priming sugar (usually dextrose, not included) to carbonate the beer during bottling. Dissolve the appropriate amount of sugar in boiling water, cool, and add to the bottling bucket.

  3. Fill your sanitised bottles or kegs, leaving appropriate headspace.

  4. Cap the bottles or seal the kegs, then store them at room temperature for at least 2 weeks to allow for carbonation.

Enjoy:

  1. After 2 weeks, chill a bottle, pour it into a glass, and enjoy your very own, homebrewed Black Rock BIB Crafted Lager!
