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


  • 1.5 kg Brick Road Hazy Pale Ale
  • 1.5 kg Brick Road Extra Light Malt Note: Muntons Oat can be used for more body and a darker colour.
  • 300g g Lactose
  • 1 pkt S04 yeast
  • 100 g Centennial hops
  • 100 g Cashmere
  • 50 g Citra hops
  • 50 g Mosaic


  • 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. Add the 300g of lactose.
  • Mix the concentrated wort and water well, then pour into your fermenter. Top up with cold quality brewing water to 19L for approx. 5.3% ABV. Vigourously stir the wort with a large spoon to oxygenate it. Ensure the wort temperature is 9 - 22 degrees celcius. Gently pour in the cup of yeast slurry and gently stir into the oxygenated wort.
  • Seal the fermenter lid and insert airlock. Ideally ferment at 18-22 degrees Celcius for 10 - 14 days.
  • On Day 3 of fermentation, add half the hops. Ideally add inside a hop bag and remove after 48 hours. Repeat with the remaining hops on Day 5.
  • After 10 days, check the gravity. If the SG remains steady for three days, fermentation is complete. If in doubt, leave a few more days for better results. Keg or bottle your brew.
