Homebrew in under two weeks?
    #2085031 - 11/08/03 09:47 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Does anyone have a simple to follow recipe for homebrew in less than two weeks?

I need to get started ASAP.

Just go buy a kit and make sure you use ale yeast. I started drinking mine on day 6 kind of flat, but that is the way I like it.

If your talking about those things that come in the canisters and don't need any cooking at all, you'll end up with basically alcoholic carbonated water.

Definitely stop by a homebrew store and get one of those box kits. They have easy instructions inside. It all basically consists of steeping the specialty malts at about 160F for 15-30 minutes. Then add in the liquid or dry malt extract, depending on the kit you buy, bring to a boil, add the hops and boil from 2 - 60 minutes, depending on the instruction. Then dump it into a 6.5 gallon bucket, add more water, make sure the temp is about 80F, pitch the yeast, cover, put the airlock on, and store in a cool(60-70F) place and wait a few days. If its warmer like 80, your fermentation will be done in about 3-4 days. Then you can bottle which could take another 2 weeks for carbonation, or just get a keg, a co2 tank, and a regulator and force carbonate the beer. If your force carbonating, you can churn out 5 gallons or more(depending on batch size) in about 5 days.

I am hoping to use fermentation for carbonation as I don't have the carbonation equipment to force it.

There must be a quick-brew recipe out there somewhere.

Each kit has the complete recipe and instructions.

If your going to use some good yeast like White Labs or Wyeast, you could get fermentation done in 3 days. Then just bottle with some corn sugar and by the 11th day all the sugar should be consumed and carbonated. 2 week beer. It won't taste as good as beer that had more time to ferment and age. Why do you need quick homebrew? The beer store will have beer.

If you want really quick and easy I'd go with apple cider and not beer. Add some sugar to apple cider, add queefer (sp?) or champagne yeast and let it sit for a week or two. Tastes pretty good, too, IMO.

You could throw some dry ice in something to carbonate it more.

When I bottle my homebrew I'm always sure to make some "Super Brew" as follows. Take the sludge and a couple of liters of brew at the bottom of the fermenter, add a mixture of fermentables to taste( table sugar, mollasses, honey, whatever...), a fresh pack of yeast and place it next to a good heat source. I use a wood stove. In three days its ready for bottling. Age for a few more days and enjoy! This ones great for when company comes or whenever your shitfaced. Its wounderful presentation and aroma is sure to impress even the most discriminating palates. Truly a fine brew.

Cider is an option.

I need a quick homebrew because I did not plan ahead. Some things are just better when not bought from a store.

very true, but do you have a bar in your town that brews their own beer? they might sell 15 gal. kegs of beer. This one bar's owner also owns the homebrew store sells kegs of beer.

where would you find a 'homebrew store'? where would you find it in the phonebook?

You might as well just buy the beer from the store.

That's what I thought too...it was a bit too flashy for me. I have a couple brew supply stores in my town anyway.
