Make your very own beer at home without making all those trips to the market. All you need to get started is a little bit of money, a kitchen, some basic equipment and ingredients and some time-a lot of time.
Fill the pot 2/3 full of water and bring to a boil. When the water starts to get hot, add the malt extract syrup. Be sure to stir constantly until the syrup is completely dissolved. After the mixture, known as wort, begins to boil you won't need to stir any longer because the natural agitation of the bubbles will keep things moving.
Add the "finishing hops" to the pot right before you turn off the heat. You can add a quarter or so of an ounce. The addition of these hops are not going to add much bitterness because they are added late in the boiling cycle.
Add the yeast to the wort. You can either add the yeast straight from the envelope or rehydrate it in boiled, cooled water and then add it. Once you've added the yeast, apply the lid and airlock. It will be at least a week before you will bottle the brew.
