1. On the brew day, clean and sanitise your fermenter, airlock, lid and mixing paddle with Mangrove Jack’s Total San Sanitiser.

2. Add 3 L of boiling water to your fermenter.

3. Pour the contents of the Mangrove Jack’s Brewer’s Series Blonde Dry pouch into the fermenter and squeeze out the remains.

4. Add the contents of the Mangrove Jack’s Light Liquid Malt Extract pouch and stir until completely dissolved.

5. Top up to 23 L with cold water.

6. Check the liquid temperature is below 25°C (77°F), then add the contents of the yeast sachet.

7. On day 7 of fermentation, add the 25g each of Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin Hops. Do not stir (the hops will break up and disperse naturally).

8. Leave to ferment for a further 2-3 days or until the airlock has stopped bubbling then check the SG using a hydrometer. If fermentation is complete, the SG should be equal to or below the value indicated on the Brewer’s Series carton.

9. Continue your brew per the instructions on the Brewer’s Series carton.
