My older brother has been brewing beer for a while and the hobby has gotten my interest recently. So, today I decided to start my first batch. I like amber beers so that is what I have attempted to make.
I bought a basic plastic bucket starter kit from the local brewing shop. The following are the ingredients I used. Feel free to laugh at me as I am an obvious noob.
1 can munton's amber liquid extract already hopped (3.3 pounds)
2 pounds plain light malt extract powder
5.5 pounds corn sugar
1 teaspoon gypsum
1 teaspoon irish moss
1 packet of lager yeast
6 galons of water
original gravity at 74 degrees is 1.083
not sure how it is going to turn out, but I'm hoping for the best.
