This weekend the beer was ready to keg. To start I tested the gravity of the brew and once it was stable over 2 days I moved it to a sterilized bottling bucket and added some finings. This help to increase the final clarity of the beer.
I kept in the bottling bucket for 3 days and then prepared my keg.
After cleaning the keg, I sterilize it. During this process I also remove the beer tap and ball-lock disconnect and properly clean them. I then run some for the sanitizer though the beerline to clean it as well.
Once the keg is sanitized, I transfer the beer to it and label the keg.
I transfer the keg to the keezer and remove the little bit of air at the top by using 30psi CO2 and bleeding the safety valve a little bit.
Once the beer is cooled down after about 3-4 hours, I will add the CO2 again at 30psi for an hour and then remove it for an hour. I repeat this process until the required level of carbonation is achieved.
Being in Bloemfontein, I need to buy homebrew equipment and supplies from various shops in Cape Town, Durban and Gauteng as there is currently no physical shop here. Luckily I’ve found some great shops online that ships to Bloemfontein with great service and products. Here’s a list of shops that I use. If you know of any others – please feel free to comment.
General equipment and supplies:
I started with a Coopers DIY Kit bought from BeerBros (http://beerbros.co.za/). The Coopers Kit is a good start as it includes PET bottles. BeerBros also stock various supplies and equipment as well as Coopers DIY beer Kits.
I recently discovered Brew for Africa (http://www.brewforafrica.co.za/) and they are stockist (among other supplies) of the Morgan’s Beer kits. I’ve made a few beers from these kits and their quality is excellent. Their prices is also some of the most competitive around. They also stock Apple Cider kits that is easy to use and taste really great.
