How to Brew
1: Mixing: Pour 2 Litres of Hot water into sanitised fermenter add the contents of can (once softened in warm water) and Morgan’s Body Blend 1kg, Stir contents to dissolve. Add cold water to bring the contents upto 23 litres. Place infusion bag from the Morgan’s Cluster Finishing hop in a cup of boiling water and stand for 10 minutes. Pour the cup of water and infusion bag into the fermenter and allow it to ferment with the hop bag in the liquid.
- If you can control fermentation temperature pitch the Morgan’s Premium Lager yeast when the wort is at 20c, ensuring that the yeast covers the surface. (note: the yeast under the can lid is not required) Stir the brew for 30 seconds.
- If you are not able to control fermentation temperature, use the yeast under the can lid when temperature is between 22-30c pitch the yeast and stir the brew for 30 seconds.
- Ideal fermentation temperature using the premium lager yeast is 12C (Due to lower temperature and longer ferment time cleanliness and sanitation is even more important when making Lager beer. Fermentation may take 2 to 3 weeks)
- Ideal fermentation temperature using the yeast under the can lid is 25C (Fermentation may take 5 days or more)
4: MATURING: Allow Bottles to stand at a temperature between 22c and 30c for 5 days to allow the beer to carbonate. Allow another 10 days at room temperature to fully mature. The finished beer will continue to improve with further ageing.
