E-Z Caps Beer Kit Instructions

This kit makes approximately two gallons of Pale Ale beer. Beginners should follow this recipe making approximately one gallon of beer. It requires two 2-liter bottles, a funnel, and good water. In most cases, tap water will do fine, however your beer is only going to be as good as its ingredients, and the primary ingredient is water! If you have well water or foul-tasting tap water, the flavor of your beer will reflect the flavor of your water.

First, fill up two 2-liter bottles approximately 95% full of water. Empty the water into a large pot and add ½ the contents of this bag. ½ of this bag is approximately 24 ounces (680 grams) or roughly 2 ½ cups (1 liter). Exact measurements are not required. Stir until dissolved and add one bag of hops (Looks like a big teabag). The hops will steep in their bag, do not remove the hops from the bag. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When it just begins to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely to room temperature.

Second, gently remove the bag of hops and discard it. Carefully transfer the wort (liquid) to the 2-liter bottles using a funnel. Open up the envelope of yeast and add approximately a half (50%) of the yeast to each bottle. If instructions are on the yeast packet, ignore them. Set the remainder of the yeast aside and save it for your next batch. Screw on one of our patented EZ Caps to each of the two bottles and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Place the bottles somewhere where they will be undisturbed at room temperature for 5 days.

Third, invert the 2-liter bottle and shake once. Return to upright position and place in refrigerator for 2 or more days. When you are ready to enjoy your beer, gently pour it all at once into a pitcher or other container, being careful not to disturb the sediment on the bottom. Approximately 5% of the beer will be sediment on the bottom and will be discarded. Enjoy your beer responsibly.
