This is the Muntons Santa's Winter Warmer kit.
Contains the 2 1.6kg 1.4lt cans of extract.
Pack of yeast 6g
and a info leaflet showing some general brewing notes and the other beers in the range.
Front and back of the Kit box.
Instructions for brewing. I got slightly confused with the 36 metric pints = 18ltr thing and ended up with 19lt of wort, not 20.5lt as supposed to have.
The kit means 36 Imperial pints each 568ml not Metric pints Each 500ml. Basically I am 3 pints short. This means I underbrewed, which will result in a stronger brew. It also means I have less to drink.
Both big cans of muntons santa winter warmer are in the fermenter after warming the cans up on both sides. Very dark colour and strong taste to this beer unlike what I have done before.
Both tins filled with boiling water and tossed in fermenter as well to get the maximum out and increased boiling water content.
I like how the photo actually worked this time without blurring and the hydrometer actually pointed in right direction. Also distint lack of the damm fogging which usually shows when I take readings.
The stick on Thermometer described as "Large Self Adhesive Liquid Crystal Thermometer (10
to 40 oC, Vertical" is a POR. I don't like it and it don't seem to be working for shit either.
Supposed to be displaying 24-25°C.
I have the muntons winter warmer beer in a box lined with foam sheet and the white packing foam. No 2nd waterbath so I have to use primitive methods like this. Enough crap I get when doing this, imagine the crap when the kegs show up and I'm looking for a fridge.
One thing remove airlock before moving fermenter, or you lose some of your vodka.
