  • 1 30 litre fermenter
  • 1 Large mixing spoon
  • 1 5 litre jug


  • 1.5 kg Brick Road Classic Hazy Pale Ale
  • 1.5 kg Brick Road Extra Light Malt Option to use Muntons Oat malt instead, for a creamier, darker beer.
  • 300 g Lactose
  • 1 pkt Fermentis S04 Yeast
  • 100 g Mosaic Hops
  • 100 g Citra Hops
  • 100 g Nelson Sauvin Hops optional


  • Clean and sanitise fermenter, spoon, cup and jug.
  • Fill the cup to 3/4 full with cold brewing water. Sprinkle in the dried yeast and gently stir in. Cover.
  • Soften the malt cans in hot water for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour 2 litres of boiling water into your 5L jug. Open the cans and pour the contents into the jug, along with the 300g of lactose.
  • Mix the concentrated wort and water well, then pour into your fermenter. Top up to 21 litres with cold quality brewing water. Ensure the wort temperature is 15 - 25 degrees celcius. Vigourously stir the wort with a large spoon to oxygenate it. Gently pour in the cup of yeast slurry and gently stir into the oxygenated wort.
  • Seal the fermenter lid and insert airlock. Ferment at 18-14 degrees Celcius for four days.
  • On Day 4, put half of each of the hops into a sanitised hop sock or tube, tied with non-scented dental floss. Gently sink the hops into the wort.
  • On Day 7, remove the first dry hop and add the remaining hops as above.
  • Check the gravity. If the SG remains steady for three days, fermentation is complete. Keg or bottle your brew.
