=================== RECIPE ===================

Dark Porter Style Beer

1 Pound Dark Roast Barley With Ground Coffee
1 Pound Dark Roast Barley With Ground Cocoa Nibs
9 Pounds Dark Roast Malt Extract
5 Gallons Distilled Bottled Water
1 Tube Pilsner Lager Yeast, WLP800, White Labs
1 Ounce (28.4g) Hops, Nugget Alpha 13.5% Beta 4.5 (First Pitch)
1 Ounce (28.4g) Hops, US Golding, Alpha 4.9% Beta2.3% (Second Pitch)
1 Piece Beer Stix, North American Oak, medium roast
Extra White Sugar

Bring one gallon of distilled water to a 150F (65.5C). Add both barleys and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Drain the liquid through a sieve and cheese cloth. Add one half gallon water to the remains. Stir and strain again. Bring a separate gallon of water to boil and add all the Malt Extract. When it boils add the first pitch of hops and turn off the heat. After 45 minutes pitch the second hops. Pour the brewed malt tea into the malt and hops mixture. Combine well and then add to your 5 gallon vessel. Add enough water to bring the level to the bottom of the bottle neck, allowing for space so the yeast can out gas.

Allow the entire mixture to come below 75F (24C). Then pitch the yeast and mix well. Test some of the liquid to know the hydrometer reading for predicted alcohol content. Place beer stix into vessel. Cork the vessel and run plastic tubing setting up a water trap for gas escape. Place vessel in warmish place and leave for 2 weeks.

After two weeks, decant the beer from the top down, being sure to not stir up all that has settled. Add 2 teaspoons of sugar per liter of beer, cap and store for another 2 week. This will develop the natural carbonation.

At the 4 week mark, place some beers in the refrigerator and enjoy 24 hours later! Allowing more time will allow the beer to mellow and develop in flavor. Enjoy!

  5. I’m not sure if you read old video comments. But I just recently found your channel, on your hard apple cider video. And I’m curious if the tube method is what you used before you got a bubbler? Or if the tube method is better? I’m going to start making my own beer/wine/cider soon. Just trying to make sure everything turns out okay. Thank you in advance. 🙂

    My grandfather used bleach in dishwasher

  7. I siphon to a bucket and stir in 1 cup of sugar for 23 Litres / 6 US Gal. That way I know every bottle has exactly the same concentration of sugar in it, to the molecule.

  8. I love beear

  9. How much does it cost to brew all those bottles if you already have the material?

  10. Also, I've seen many brewers pour sugar into the container before pouring beer into bottle so everything is equal

  11. gamePieNextGeneration

    hey send me some of that rich delicious beer here's my address 611 West Michigan Avenue

  12. 25 retards thumbs downed this awesome vid

  13. Why distilled water? yeast kinda prefer those minerals in the water.

  14. You sound like jack black…not a bad thing!

  15. man drinking ginnes. and you got the coffee coconut flavor on it,

  16. 32.. that's it that is alquimia. (science) without the sugar you won't get champagne.

  17. I meant do you can control the % volume?…

  18. the final test (hydrometer) about 5%; thick good flavor taste. before final stage of bottleing. if would you like to increment the % would you be able?…

  19. last time to much carbonation. that's the final trick specific to size of container. nice 🚹. like 🍺 👍 for the soul; I meant good homemade brew. rich on flavor. keep the good work.

    great video!

  21. Black Eyed Barley Malter

    Great video. Thank you for this useful information. Have you ever tried to make your own malted barley. I've been making toasted malted barley for a long time now and it gives a much better beer in the end. I do have a few "how to malt and toast barley" videos and how to make all the toasted malts that you need. I hope it will help others as well. https://youtu.be/0S6Tb7w8NDI here is the link

  22. Always enjoy your enthusiasm 🍻

  23. Color, head retention, and probably flavor looks great!

  24. Jill Applegate

    Best advice, I can give you after 14 years of brewing is. 5 gallon buckets are your best friend.  Fill them up with your sanitizer water you can hold all your brewing stuff much better then the sink.

  25. GOC Greg Simon

    Does the alcohol go up after bottling?
