How to Home Brew Beer – A step by step guide using an Extract with Specialty Grains Kit

Ever wanted to brew your own beer at home but was concerned it was too hard or complicated? Put those thoughts aside. Coach Chris of WolfMoon Brewing will walk you through step by step on how you can home brew beer using an Extract Kit with Specialty Grains.

We will be showing how to brew a kit obtained from Northern Brewer that is an Extract Kit with Specialty Grains called Obi Ron’s Wheat. Coach Chris will take you step by step through each stage of the process and give explanations of why and how to assist you in avoiding the pitfalls new home brewers can make. Some of these are how to prepare your specialty grains, prepare the extract, how to add your extract to the pot to avoid boil overs, how a spray bottle of water can assist with boil overs, how and when to take your specific gravity readings, when you should put your yeast in (known as pitching), and how and where to store your fermenter to let the yeast do its job efficiently. He’ll also go over the differences of a full quantity boil (shown in the video) and how to modify the process if using a partial quantity boil for those working with smaller boil pots.

So come on along and join the many home brewers out there by making your own beer – you’ll be amazed at how simple and easy it really can be. Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next brew!! 🍻
