Instructions on Making Home brew beer kits! Courtesy of Muntons- Thanks Guys!

Simple Instructions    
Step 1 1. Clean and sterilise all equipment. Remove label and stand can in hot water for 5 minutes. Pour the can contents into the sterilised fermenter. Add sugar or spray dried malt extract. Step 2 2. Add 3.5 litres (6 UK pints) boiling water, top up with cold water to 23 litres (5 UK gallons, 6 US gallons). Thoroughly mix to make sure all the contents are fully dissolved.



  Step 3   3. Stir in the yeast, cover the fermenter and leave to stand for 4-6 days in a warm place (between 18-20 C, 65-70 F). Fermentation will be finished when the bubbles cease to rise (if you have a hydrometer, when the gravity remains constant below 1008°).   Step 4   4. Transfer the beer into bottles or pressure barrel with a little sugar (1/2 teaspoonful per pint. 85 grams (3 ozs) per pressure barrel) which will condition the beer. Stand bottles or barrel in a warm place for 2 days then leave for 14 days in a cool place or until the beer is clear.
