Step 1

Review

Read through the homebrew recipe and steps of the brewing process entirely before starting your brew day to ensure maximum efficiency.

This tutorial will walk you through the entire brewing process for ZAITH Weizen, a German-style wheat ale. The same steps can be applied to any extract-only recipe, although instructions for other beer styles and fermentation and packaging processes will vary.

Step 2

Gather supplies

Ensure you have all the homebrewing equipment and beer ingredients necessary to brew.

Use the Brew Day Checklist and Extract-only Note Sheet to make sure you have everything you need and help you keep track of your brew day.

Step 3

Clean equipment

Using unscented cleanser, thoroughly clean all brewing equipment.

Debris on equipment can harbor microorganisms that can spoil a batch of beer, even with proper sanitation.

Step 4

Heat water

Put 1 gallon (3.79 L) of water in the boil pot and bring it to a boil.
Step 5

Add malt extract

Once boiling, remove the pot from heat and stir in the malt extract, being careful that it does not collect on the bottom of the pot.

Stir until completely dissolved.

Note: removing the pot from the heat source prevents the malt extract from scorching.

Step 6

Return to boil

Once the malt extract has dissolved, return the liquid to a boil.
Step 7

Add hops

After the liquid reaches a rolling boil, add the bittering hop addition.

Note: hop additions are typically labeled with the time left until the end of the boil.
