Pre-Brew: Sanitize

You might be surprised to learn that sanitization might actually be the most important thing here. If things are not completely clean, your yeast will die. You will not drink good beer, and the next few steps will only provide you with a valuable learning experience instead of a decidedly more valuable drinking experience.

  • Dissolve half of your sanitizer packet with a gallon of water in a container. Save the second half for when you bottle.
  • Soak everything you are going to use, rinse with water, and let air dry on some paper towels. If it isn’t totally dry when you are ready to start don’t worry.
  • Keep the extra sanitizer in a container for now. Chances are you’ll want to re-sanitize something later.
