Brewing 101: Make real beer using grains, malts, and yeasts. A beginner's course in partial mash brewing.


Water is, of course, what makes up most of the beer. Selecting the water that you will use is a part of creating the taste you want.

Fermentable sugars, particularly malted barley, is covered in this section of the course. Ted explains that malted barley is and how you can choose barleys to make the flavor you want.

Hops the little flower that makes beer bitter, flavorful, and aromatic. It's inclusion in beer is a big part of what makes the taste we know as beer.

While homebrewers don't mess around too much with yeast, it's obviously a key ingredient. Ted covers the two types of years commonly used by home brewers.

A range of additional items are covered in this lecture, from honey to the strangely named "Irish Moss" Ted looks at a few of the many things added to beer.

At the end of this lecture you will know why partial mash beer kits are perhaps the best choice for a beginning brewer.

A basic brewing kit provides you with all of the necessary components you need to brew beer. In this session Ted walks you through the items that come in a typical home brew startup kit.Sorry about th ...

In this lecture Ted gives an item-by-item breakdown of what comes in a partial mash brew kit.

Ted goes over the ingredients in an all extract kit. You can skip this lecture if you are doing a partial mash and don't want to take the time on all extract kits.

Ted's kit is a little bit different than what you saw in the brew store. Here are a few additional items to consider.

In this lecture Ted will talk about cleaning and the five major Steps in making beer:Combine and dissolve the malt extracts Add the hops (and any other adjuncts the recipe calls forPut everything int ...

The boil is when you put in all of the ingredients, boil them up, and make wort! It will smell really good in your house. In this lecture, Ted combines all of the ingredients and gives them a good boi ...

The yeast is added to the beer.

In this lecture you will learn how the hydrometer works. Then, you will see a graphic illustration and the math behind using the hydrometer readings.

Here you will see the fermentation setup and hear the bubbles as the yeast does its magic.

This lecture describes the types of bottles and process of cleaning necessary before we head into bottling.

Siphoning off the beer from the fermenter and placing it into the bottling bucket. Care should be taken to avoid getting sediment into the beer that will be bottled.

In this demonstration you will see how the beer is transferred from the bottling bucket into the individual bottles.

Capping is a simple and straightforward process which is often a mystery to the unitiated. Here, Ted demonstrates the capping process.

After the beer has been primed and placed in the bottles, it is fermented a second time. This will provide carbonation to the beer.

Using our hydrometer readings and formula we can determine the approximate amount of alcohol in the beer we just brewed and fermented.

In this short lecture you will see an example of web-based, open sourced software that allows you to track your batches of home brew.

Please review the course. If you are unsure how to do it, this screen capture shows Ted reviewing another course.

We made it to the end! Now you will see the final result of the brewing process.
