The canned directions say nothing about boiling the wort with water for an hour, which we've done on the previous kit to great success. It also doesn't say anything about lagering or temperature for fermenting, which makes me suspect, and I don't know what kind of yeast came with the kit. We used all the kit's ingredients plus an ounce of Saaz finishing hops. The first day's fermentation was sluggish but evident. The second day we switched the overflow tube with the airlock and accidentally got the rubber gasket to fall through the lid into the fermenter. We carefully transferred the brew to a second fermenter by carefully pouring and lidded that fermenter with the retrieved gasket and an airlock. Fermentation is sluggish as can be. My fermenting space is 71 degrees. Any experience with this product or advice on how I shall proceed?
