How does micro-brewing with U-Brew It work?
U-Brewit has over 150 quality beer recipes to choose from.
Many of these are styled after some very popular and exotic commercial brews such as Heineken, Guinness and Corona. Others are U-Brewit original recipes which have been designed drawing from over 30 years of experience in the beer business and working with our customers to create specific characteristics.
Any of our recipes can be modified to suit the individual tastes or with our expert help you can even use your own ideas to 'invent' your own custom beer.
Following the simple instructions on your recipe sheet, you measure the malts, grains and hops into their respective containers.
These ingredients are then added ( with the help of our excellent staff ) at various times throughout the brewing process. At the completion of the brewing ( about 1 hour ) your 'WORT' is transfered from the kettle to the fermenter via a hop filter and heat exchanger. The temperature of the 'WORT' is reduced during this transfer to allow the yeast to be added at the correct temperature to ensure the perfect fermenting environment is achieved. Your brew is then placed in the Fermentation room and you need to book your return 'Bottling', 'Canning' or Kegging time. ( minimum two weeks from brewing date )
Fermenting your beer at the correct temperature and in the correct environment is crucial to the production of a quality beer.
U-Brewit uses purpose built temperature controlled fermenting rooms and established testing and sanitation procedures to ensure your beer is perfect every time. After the fermentation is complete, usually within 10 days, your beer is placed into a cold room and allowed to settle, mature and wait patiently for your return. Your beer is then filtered, transferred into stainless steel carbonating kegs and carbonated the morning you are booked to return.
At your appointed time, you return to your U-Brewit store to transfer your finished beer into whatever packaging you wish.
You have the option of Canning, Kegging or bottling ( using your own bottles or purchasing from us ). If using your own bottles please ensure they are as clean as possible BEFORE returning to save you time.
Each brew yields 50 litres of beer ( 133 x 375ml ) ( 151 x 330ml ) ( 145 345ml or an even 100 x 500ml U-Brewit Cans.
Your bottles are then placed on our own sanitiser and rinsed ready for use.
This is the very best part!!! After checking to ensure quality you simply use our very own Canning equipment or individually refrigerated bottling stations and fill your preferred packages with your premium U-Brewit beer. It could not be easier than that!!
Many of our brewers find that they 'SPILL' so much beer during bottling they have to arrange a taxi to get home.
After you get your beer home from U-Brew It, it needs to be kept cold in a fridge to avoid any re-fermentation should any yeast get through the filtration system. Because at U-Brew It, we do not add any chemicals or preservatives to guard against re-fermentation. This is a safe guard to protect your beer.
U-Brewit has found that very few of our customers require any assistance in this area of their Micro-Brewing experience.
However, as an important part of U-Brewit's quality service, our policy is to offer our expertise and skills to any and all of our valued customers who may require guidance.
PLEASE let us know if we can HELP!!!
