Let us start by mentioning that when it comes to home brewing, it is a kind of job that most individuals will be willing to have. It is good to have in mind that the process of brewing usually take as less as some weeks which is considered as less time compared to wine. To carry out the process of brewing; an individual will be required to have some equipment. Examples of some of the equipment that will be required includes the carboy, bottle, and the kettle.
In the process, one will also be required to have a bottling yard. Mentioned above are examples of the various equipment that will be needed in the process. The first equipment that will be needed in the process of brewing is the kettle. There are some individuals who will ask themselves why a kettle is needed as the first thing. The reason for this is because, with your wort, you will be required to place it inside the kettle.
Wort is usually the end products after the barley, hops as well as other grains are boiled. Remember, you will be required to boil these ingredients for you to be assured that you are in the process of making the bear. The fermentation of sugar which will be the presence of the wort need to occur so that one can come up with alcohol. It will be useful to let individual has in mind that with the fermentation process, it will take place in large containers that are made of glass.
If you are a brewer, you will call the large containers carboy. A combination of hot wort, as well as cold water, will take place in the carboy. Cold water will be used to prevent the carboy from shattering due to the addition of cold water. So that the mixture can cool, it should be left for some time. With this, the living organism that will be available in the yeast will be activated rather than being killed.
To measure the gravity in the liquid, hygrometer will be required. It is good to note that the appearance of the hygrometer is just like that of a thermometer. With the level that the hydrometer will show, that will be the gravity of the liquid. Remember, with the mixture that you have, you will be required to add some sugar so that the fermentation process can be enhanced.
With the bottling, you will be good to carry out the addition of sugar. The bottles will be used by individuals to ensure that the bear is stored and it is in good hands. To allow the carbonation of bear to take place; it will be necessary to wait for some weeks.
