You will require basic brewing equipment to make the beer
Here is a simple starter kit Starter Kit With Barrel to allow you to make the beer if you have not already got brewing equipment
Below is a list of the essential equipment needed to make a beer kit
Fermenting Bin 25 ltrs + - To ferment the st peter's honey porter
Pressure Barrel or Pet Bottles, 2 packs enough for 5 gallons of beer - To Store and condition the beer ready for drinking
Syphon Equipment - To aid moving the beer from the fermenter to the barrel or bottles
Hydrometer - To Measure the gravity of the beer when it starts and finishes
LCD Thermometer - Sticks on the fermenting bin to help you get the right brewing temperature 16oC - 24oC is best for beer
Steriliser - Not equipment but is essential part to keep all equipment clean and sterilised when used
Water - Beer is made from 95% water. Tap water will be fine, filtered is better to remove the chlorine will help give you the best result.

The following instructions are for St. Peters Golden Ale and Cream Stout kits which are
40 pint beer kits. Please pay special attention to instruction 2 if brewing Ruby Red or
India Pale Ale as the amount of water required differs.
1. Clean and sterilise all beer making equipment. Stand cans in hot water for 5
minutes. Pour can contents into the sterilised fermenter.
2. Add 3.5 litres (6 pints) boiling water, top up with cold water to 20.5 litres (36 pints)
and thoroughly mix to ensure all contents are fully dissolved.
*For Ruby Red Ale top up to 23 litres (40 pints) and India Pale Ale top up to 19
litres (32 pints).
3. Add the hop sachet, then the yeast; cover the fermenter and leave to stand for 4-6
days in a warm place (between 18-20°C, 65-70°F). Fermentation will be complete
when bubbles cease to rise (if you use a hydrometer, when the gravity remains
constant below 1014°).
4. Transfer the beer into bottles or a pressure barrel with a little sugar (½ teaspoon
per pint, up to a maximum of 85g for a pressure barrel) to help condition the beer.
Stand bottles or barrel in a warm place for two days then allow 14 days in a cool
place or until the beer has cleared.
By following these instructions, your beer should have an alcohol strength of about 4%
ABV (Alcohol by Volume). To check this you will need to take two hydrometer readings,
one at the start, before adding the yeast (the SG), and a reading once the beer is ready
to bottle (the FG). You can calculate the strength by deducting the finishing gravity (FG)
from the starting gravity (SG). Record the resultant number and multiply this by 0.129
to calculate the alcohol strength i.e. 1044 – 1013 = 31 x 0.129 = 4.0%
