Write it Down

We suggest you get a notebook to document everything you do. It’s easy to forget what you decide to do in the moment and it makes it easy to compare what you’ve done to what you want to do. When creating a receipt make sure to list the type and amount of: Fermentable, Hops, water (ph balance) and any extras you might use like Irish Moss or Yeast nutrient.

Another key element to help you have a target goal is calculating your receipts ABV, IBU’s and SRM’s before your start. You can find a great FREE calculator at Brewer’s Friend.

The last suggestion we have is creating a calendar of your brews to keep track of your Brew Date, Transfer to Secondary and Carbonation period. It can also help you determine what type of beer to brew next because who wants to run out of beer because you didn’t plan accordingly.
