Brewing instructions
The Muntons Connoisseurs range brings together an uncompromising blend of quality ingredients designed to brew truly exceptional beer.
Recipe to brew 23 litres – 40 pints (6 US gallons) OG 1040° to 1044°

• Sterilise your fermenter and stirrer.
• Stand the can in hot water for 5 minutes to soften the contents. Then start boiling 3.5 litres (6 UK pints) of water.
• Open the can and pour the contents into your cleaned and sterilised fermenter.
• Add the boiling water to the fermenter and 1kg (2.2 lbs) of sugar (preferably brewing sugar).
• Thoroughly mix the contents of the fermenter to dissolve the sugar and malt extract.
• Add 17.5 litres (31 pints) of cold water to bring the volume up to 23 litres and stir well.
• Sprinkle the yeast supplied onto the surface of the beer (no need to stir).
• Cover the fermenter, place in a warm area at 18- 21°C (65-70°F) and leave to ferment.
• Fermentation will be complete when bubbles cease to rise (usually after 4-6 days), or if you use a hydrometer, when the gravity remains constant at a figure below 1008°.
• Siphon the beer into strong bottles or a pressure barrel. Be careful not to disturb the yeast sediment and only use returnable beer bottles.
• Add half a teaspoon full of sugar per pint to each bottle (or a maximum of 85 g or 3 oz, per 5 UK gallon pressure barrel).
• Cap and seal the bottles securely and stand the bottles or pressure barrel in a warm place for 2 days.
• Finally, move the bottles or pressure barrel to a cool place for 14 days, or until the beer is clear, before drinking.
