New Instructions For Better Brew Homebrew Beers Kits
- Better Brew uses genuine brewers beer yeast strains which means slower and more gentle fermentations especially during the later stages of primary fermentation.
- After the initial intense fermentations from the Better Brew beer making kits, it can take another full seven days to fall the final 5 or 6 gravity points.
- Such slow second-week fermentation means the airlock won't be bubbling and the gravity will only be falling by an average of 1 point per day.
- Better Brew beer kit instructions explicitly say to leave for ten days in the primary stage (between 20-25C).
- This ten-day process is exceptionally essential, even if you are an experienced homebrewer and you usually bottle when the airlock ceases bubbling.
- The gravity reading may seem to suggest the same specific gravity for two days (you may not notice the 1 point drop!).
- If you ignore the ten-day initial fermentation time, you may have to deal with gushing bottles!
- By kegging your beer, it is not as critical because of the kegs pressure release valve.
- Brew Mart strongly recommends always leaving the beer for ten days in primary brewing state.
- For the Better Brew homebrew lagers, you can ferment your ale cooler than the 20-25C.
- Doing this would mean a small quality improvement, but it's only tiny as the yeast strain Better Brew use performs very well for lagers at 20C.
- The lower temperature to use is between 15-20C; however, doing this will mean a much more extended brewing time.
- Only you can decide when to proceed at the end of the initial fermentation, monitor the gravity drops carefully and proceed to bottle when you get the same gravity for a few days
- There is no quality improvement if you ferment cooler for any of the other types of beer.
- Allergy Advice: May contain Barley & other Cereals containing Gluten.
