Sanitize 5 Gallon
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.
- Dillute your sanitizer according to its instructions.
- Soak everything you are going to use.
- Keep the extra sanitizer in a container for now. Chances are you’ll want to re-sanitize something later.
- NOTE: Follow the instructions on your sanitizer. Sanitizers are different. C-Brite should be rinsed off. StarSan does not need to be.
