Brewing all grain beer at home is often spoken about. The process involves 7 convenient and quick steps to brew homemade all grain beer. The basic equipment you require will include a burner, a wort chiller, and a water cooler. These steps are very easy and anybody can practice them.

1. Firstly, you must clean and assemble the mash tun. You have to add a quart of water for every pound of grain. Add water first in order to preheat the mash tun. Stir water till it reaches the temperature of 170°F. Once you reach the ideal temperature, add the crushed grains to the water cooler. Cover the cooler with a lid once the grains are covered by a layer of water.

2. Record the temperature of the cooler after a period of ten minutes. The ideal temperature required ranges 149 to 156°F. Replace the lid back on the cooler and mash the grains for an hour. Now, heat the sparge water to a temperature of 200°F.

3. The end product is termed ‘wort’. Place a small amount of wort in a bowl. Test the starch content of the grains by adding a drop of Tincture of Iodine. If the color disappears, then you can proceed. If the color remains, then heat the mashed grains again in a pan covered with a lid. Test the starch content again after some time. Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the mashed grains.

4. Once the starch is completely converted into sugar, drain half a gallon of wort and place it on the top of the mashed contents. Repeat the process twice or thrice to clear the wort.

5. Sparging refers to rinsing the wort from the grains present in the mash tun. Pour the sparging water on the grains and gather the wort from the bottom. The whole process spans across an hour.

6. Boil the collected wort. About 15% quantity is lost due to evaporation. Five gallons of beer will require you to boil 6 gallons of wort.

7. Chill the wort quickly. Add the cool wort to a sanitized and clean fermenter. Allow the beer to ferment for three to five days before bottling. Remember to store the fermenter in a cool, dry, and dark place. Transfer the beer in the bottles with the use of a siphon hose. Leave some space at the top of the bottles so that air flow occurs and the liquid carbonates at the room temperature. Screw the caps on the bottles tightly and keep it aside. If you are using glass bottles you do not need to place the caps on it. Place the bottles in a dark and cool place of your home for a period of seven to ten days. Remember, if you let the beer stand for a longer time, it will taste better.

Now, that you have got to know about an easy method of brewing beer at home, you must give it a try.

So what are you waiting for! Just note down this recipe of how to brew home beer. Easy and comprehensible instructions will make it an easy process
