who wants to make the best beer they can from the start.
This is accomplished through two-stage fermentation. Primary
fermentation is the first step. During this 5-7 day process, most
of the fermentation takes place and by the end of this period
most of the particles and solids will settle to the bottom. The
second step is transferring the beer in to the secondary fermenter
(7-21 days). Separating the beer from the sediment will result
in clearer beer and improve the characteristics of the beer. Beer
can condition and clarify in the secondary fermenter for weeks
or months depending on the style and strength of the beer.
Transferring the beer into a 5 gallon glass carboy or Better Bottle
will reduce oxidation of the beer. This kit is highly recommended
if you intend to brew any high alcohol or lager beers.

5 Gallon Recipe Kits
M
idwest Homebrewing Supplies offers a large selection of
5 gallon recipe kits. Our kits cover ale, lager, wheat
and specialty hybrid styles. All ales come with
a “top fermenting” yeast, while the lagers come with a
“bottom fermenting” yeast. The ales ferment best at a
temperature between 60°F and 70°F, while lagers should be
fermented between 45°F and 60°F. Lagers require a longer
period of bottle conditioning, typically 6 weeks. This is ideally
accomplished in a refrigerator, but a cool basement floor during
the winter months also works well. To determine if your basement
is cool enough simply place a glass of water on your basement

1.75 oz. Wyeast packs are pure strains of liquid beer yeast in self-
contained foil packs. They require activation 24-48 hours before
brewing. This is easily done by holding the yeast pack in your hand and
hitting it with your other hand. This activates the yeast culture inside the
pack. Within 24-48 hours your yeast is activated and ready to use. When
you’re ready to add the yeast, simply cut the yeast pack open and add to your
wort/beer. 1.75 oz. Propagator packs (000W) are available for an additional
$3.00. The ACTIVATOR packs have an average of 100 billion cells of pure

Recipe Kit of the Month Club
Don’t have time to shop for brew kits every month? Then let us save you time and money. Both of our plans save you over $25 compared to
purchasing these kits separately. That’s one free kit per year! Each plan is designed so your beer is ready during the traditional time of year in which
that style of beer is consumed. Our Lager-Ale plan is designed around the colder months of the year when basement temperatures can range from
50 - 60 degrees. Remember, by setting your fermenter directly on a concrete basement floor, lager temperatures are easily reached. Descriptions of
these recipes can be found on our recipe kit pages (pgs. 9-18). Two substitutions allowed per year. Maximum substitution value is $25.95 for both schedules.

Yeast
What’s the difference between dry and liquid yeast?
The advantages of dried beer yeast are that it is simple to use, usually very active and foolproof. One can significantly improve the performance of
dried yeasts (and consequently the flavor of your beer) by properly rehydrating it. Do this by adding the dried yeast to a sanitized glass jar filled with
1-1.5 cups of 90-100 F tap water. Cover with clean foil and let rehydrate for 15-30 minutes, then bring the temperature of the rehydrated yeast close
to that of the wort and pitch. Even for the brewer that normally uses liquid yeast, it’s a good idea to keep a couple of packets af dry yeast around for
brewing emergencies. The main advantage of liquid yeast is the wide variety of strains available. Many of the liquid strains of yeast have been obtained
from breweries in brewing centers from around the world and therefore afford the home brewer the greatest possible chance to replicate the beers’
styles, which made these cities famous. Yeast is arguably the most important ingredient in beer and indeed, certain styles of beer cannot even be
approximated without the use of the correct yeast strain. The three types of yeast Midwest carries are the Wyeast Smack-Packs and Activator Packs,
and the White Labs Pitchable Tubes. The slap-packs have a smaller yeast culture in them and are best utilized in conjunction with a yeast starter. The
Activators, generally, have a large enough culture starting out that they can be pitched directly into 5 gallons of wort with a specific gravity up to 1.050
without the use of a yeast starter. All they require is removal from the refrigerator to a room temperature environment for 4-5 hours prior to their
use. Visit White Labs (www.whitelabs.com) and Wyeast Laboratories (www.wyeastlab.com) for more detailed information on liquid yeast strains.

For best results, all dry yeast should be rehydrated before pitching. Boil and then cool a cup of water to between 90-110º F.
This sterilizes the water. Dissolve the yeast in the water for 15-30 minutes.

§ Quick Tip Dry yeasts have come a long way in


recent years. While liquid yeasts are still generally better
than dry, the recent advances made in the production
of dry yeast have made it a much more viable option
than it used to be. One thing to keep in mind is that
dry yeast tends to be somewhat inconsistent. The
same dry yeast pitched in two batches of the same
beer may yield different results, while using a liquid
strain will be consistent nearly every time. You will
still get a full fermentation using dry yeast (sometimes
in as few as 1-2 days), just as you would using liquid,
so you may consider it as an economical alternative.

Pellet Hops are whole hops that are shredded and compressed at harvest. This protects against aging and oxidation, but also breaks the lupulin
glands for better hop utilization. Hop Plugs are whole flowers pressed into 1/2 oz. plugs. Similar to pellets, these plugs are sealed up immediately,
which seals the natural acids and oils. Plugs are generally used as aroma hops and for dry hopping. Dry hopping is adding 1-2 ounces of hops in
the secondary fermenter. (4-7 days) Whole Flower Hops are similar to plugs in their use. Hop Flowers are noted for their hop bouquet and are
often used in special recipes. All hops sold by Midwest come in oxygen-barrier and light-barrier bags. All hops are kept refrigerated until the
time they are shipped to guarantee maximum freshness. Hops are harvested cone-shaped flowers of hop vines. These cones contain lupulin
glands, which are responsible for bitterness and aroma qualities. Bittering hops usually have a high alpha acid. The bitterness qualities that hops
add are from the alpha acids in the lupulins. When boiled, a reaction occurs that creates bitterness and adds a natural preservative to the beer.
First noted when India Pale Ale was sent from England to their troops in India. These ales were strongly bittered so they would remain fresh
when they arrived by ship. Aroma hops are noted for their lower alpha acid contents and their fragrance. When added towards the end of the
boiling process, these hops produce different levels of hoppy, piney, woody and fruity aromas. Midwest offers hops in Pellets, Plugs or Flowers.

Counterflow Wort Chillers
About Counterflow Wort Chillers
The counterflow type has a smaller diameter copper
tubing that is inside larger tubing. Wort flows from
the kettle through the smaller tube, while cold
water flows through the larger tube in the opposite
direction. This results in a much shorter cooling
time, and you also use less water than the immersion
types. Counterflow wort chillers also require a kettle
with a ball valve, and lines for entry and exit. The Therminator: The Therminator is the fastest way to
