You will some more equipment to brew all grain beer. It's not horribly complicate but it does take more steps. Mash Tun, Hot Liquor tank and few other things. Do some research on here and you will figure it out.

No sense in confusing the issue with all-grain discussion.
The important thing to figure out is what recipe the OP is attempting to follow, and what ingredients he has on hand.
A very basic extract recipe would consist of malt extract, hops, and yeast.
How much and what type of each depends on what you're trying to accomplish.

Hey, thanks for all your posts. I don't live in a very big city so we only have the one homebrew shop. They pretty much only sell the pre-made homebrew where you just add sugar and yeast and your done. I think I will have to buy things on line from now on. They did not really give me any Idea on what to do but I did do some research online before I went in there so I think I have a fairly good idea about what I'm doing. I have a fermenting keg and a big electric boiler. I have yeast, hops, fermenting sugar and spray dry wheat.

Do NOT attempt to brew this by yourself. People could be seriously injured. Contact your local brew club and someone there will be happy to walk you through it.

What? I don't think he said he's going to be boiling gasoline... OP, if you haven't read any books I'd suggest "How to Brew" by Palmer, or "The Joy of Homebrewing" by Papazian. I learned a ton from those when I was starting.

How about listing the following:

What kind of DME do you have ?
How much of it do you have ?
What hops do you have and how much of it ?
Do you have water that is good enough to brew with ?
What kind of yeast do you have ? (dry-liquid) How much ?

With that information maybe someone will be able to give you a plan to follow, some better information on how you could make your beer and how you should go about bottling it when it is ready.

Spray Dry Wheat is highly combustible and deadly if not prepared properly!

It's DME, don't be an alarmist. To dry it they spray it into drying chambers, it's a common way of drying malt extract.

DME, like many fine powders that are high in sugars and carbs are safe, but if you get a puff of any of them near an open flame or a spark you can run into a mess.

Best advice to the OP or anyone not familiar with the Idiosyncrasies of DME (affinity for moisture - tendency to clump-etc ) is to add it with the flame off until you get used to managing the stuff.

Think.. Three gallons of boiling wort, flame going full blast, in one hand is a half a bag of DME that has grabbed the steam and is clumping up inside and outside the bag, the other hand is trying to get the clumps that are rolling around in the wort to break up with a spoon. Turkey fryers are safe as long as you know what you're doing, 5 gallons of boiling wort on a stovetop is safe as long as you know what you'r doing--anything is possible.

Murphy's Law..

OMO
