The Brewing Process for Oaty 007 Golden Hop Pale Ale

Now that you have all the ingredients, let’s get brewing! Here is a step-by-step guide to the brewing process:

  1. Sanitize all the equipment you will need, such as the fermenter, the airlock, and the siphon.
  2. Add the light malt extract and carapils malt to the fermenter and fill with 6 gallons of water.
  3. Bring the mixture up to a boil, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
  4. When the mixture reaches a boil, add 1 ounce of the 007 Golden hops and stir for a full 60 minutes.
  5. With 10 minutes remaining in the boil, add the crystal malt and rolled oats. This will give the beer a nice, toasty flavor.
  6. With 5 minutes left in the boil, add the Irish moss to help with the clarity of the beer.
  7. When the boil is complete, cool the wort (the boiled mixture of water, grains and hops). This can take up to an hour.
  8. When the wort has cooled, add it to the fermenter, adding enough cool water to make 5 gallons of solution.
  9. Add the package of dry yeast and seal the fermenter with the airlock.
  10. Allow the beer to ferment for two weeks – the carbonation should be done in the bottle.
  11. Once the fermentation is done, prime the beer with 1/2 cup of priming sugar. Then, siphon the beer into bottles and cap.
  12. Allow your beer to bottle condition for three weeks before drinking.
