“This seems to be a very simple recipe for making beer. It takes about 4 weeks total until it's ready. Some reviewers (although they have not made 'this' recipe, have offered some very helpful tips and is worth reading). Put here for safe-keeping.”
1hr 10mins
3 gallons

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 340.19 g canlight malt syrup (guessing size of can here)
  • 1892.5 ml water
  • 14.17 g hop
  • 7570.0 ml water
  • 7.08 g package dry yeast


  1. In a large, non-reactive stock pot, add malt syrup and water. Add hops. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and boil for 1 hour, stirring often.
  2. Cool then strain the hop mixture through a funnel, into a sterilized 7 gallon fermenting tank NOTE: I don't know what a fermenting tank is, but I would guess a ceramic or glass jug (like a milk jug) with a cork or rubber seal.
  3. Add the water and yeast. Seal the top with a stopper. Ferment for 1 1/2 weeks.
  4. Strain the beer. Bottle and age for another 2 to 3 weeks.
