Instruction The kit for making of 20 liters of beer One-pause mashing at 65о С – 60 minutes Wort boiling - 90 minutes Hop No.1 – 60 minutes before the wort stops boiling Hop No.2 - 15 minutes before the wort stops boiling Fermentation should be conducted at 20-24о С 7-10 days of fermentation 7-14 days of maturation Necessary equipment: Boiler 30 l. Enamel pan will be OK. False bottom for filtering or a canvas bag. Isothermic jacket for a 30 liter boiler (or a blanket). Fermentation tank. Pour 15 l of water in a boiler and warm it up to 73о С. Pour crushed malt from a big sack, stir it to avoid lumps.

The mash temperature shall be 65 degrees centigrade, if lower, increase up to the required one by warming it up on a low heat and stirring. Avoid malt sticking to the bottom. Isolate (make coldproof) the boiler with the jacket or a simple blanket. mashing time is 60 minutes. Prepare 9 liters of water to wash the distiller's grain, the necessary temperature is 70-80о С. Filter the wort with a colander into an intermediate tank (you can use a fermentation tank) and wash the distiller's grain with warmed water.
