The actual brewing of the beer is a time-consuming procedure. It has multiple steps that require attentiveness and patience. Before you start, make sure you have all of your equipment and ingredients ready for use. The steps for the brewing are as follow:

    Bag of crushed grains
  1. To begin the process of releasing flavors from the grains, mash them up in a plastic bag.
  2. In a large cooking pot, heat 2.5 gallons of distilled water to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Place the crushed grains into a steeping sock and let the sock soak in the pot for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes have elapsed, remove the sock from the pot and dispose of the grains.
  5. Bring the pot of water to a boil.
  6. Once the water is brought to a boil, remove it from the heat and add the malt extract.
  7. After the malt is completely dissolved, return the water to a boil.
  8. Once the water is at a boil, set a timer for 60 minutes.
  9. Add the hop pellets at designated times during the 60-minute cycle.
  10. After the 60 minutes, remove the pot from heat and strain the wort -- the liquid extracted during the mashing process -- into a large bucket.
  11. Insert a wort chiller into the bucket and run cold water through the coils for 15 minutes, or until the temperature of the wort drops to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This step can be seen being carried out by a couple of home brewers here.
  12. While the wort is being cooled, add one packet of brewer's yeast to 1.75 cups of water to activate the yeast. Let it stand for 15 minutes.
  13. Once the wort is cooled, transfer it from the bucket to the five-gallon glass carboy through a tube, then add the activated yeast to the carboy as well.
  14. Seal the carboy and thoroughly mix it to ensure the equal distribution of the yeast.

Now that the brewing is complete, it's time to store the mixture.
