The different Steps of Brewing Bulwark American Lager at Home
Now that you have all the beer brewing supplies ready, we begin the process of brewing Bulwark American lager. Begin by boiling the extracts, continue doing so for around 15-20 minutes. After the required time has elapsed add Willamette pellets to the container, and once again let it boil for around 15 minutes. Now you add the Irish Moss, and let the liquid boil for around five minutes, following which you add the Cascade pellets and wait for another five minutes. Now you have successfully prepared your wort.
Just like you did while brewing beer at home for the first time, you now transfer your wort into a bucket and let it remain there overnight. The next day you need to swirl it around to add oxygen to the wort. After which point you add the yeast, splash it as much as you want as this will only increase the oxygen in the wort, making fermentation easier. Now leave it at room temperature till the yeast starts showing signs of activity. After this, move the container to a dark place and leave it there for about a week. After a week, you bottle your beer and wait for a second week, following which you refrigerate it. After they are nice and cold, open up a few bottles and enjoy the results of your first experience with brewing Bulwark American lager at home.
