Festa Brew-Homebrewing-Pale Ale-Unboxing

This shows the 1st step of brewing beer the Festa Brew way. This is great for beginners like me, but after I get some experience, I hope to do it the old fashioned way.

    Hey Jim, 
    I have been brewing Brewhouse kits for a while now. They come in the same format as this one. The only trouble I have is actually opening the cap on the bag. How do you do it? I make a mess every time. I am now switching over to all grain as I just bought a pile of new brew gear. In the winter (too cold to all grain brew outside) I still plan to do kits that are hopped up a little more.

    Bluefin 774 The method I used to not make a mess for me was to grab the base and lift it up (the bladder is out of the box), the extra space usually was enough. But it’s a pain for sure. One of the reasons I moved to partial grain kits. just easier to cook and haul out of the store 🙂

    thecyr Bluefin 774  Thanks Jim, I’ve also tried to keep the bag in the box and use the cut tout spot for the wort bag nozzle. It didn’t work well. The hard part is actually  getting the cap off the bag. I agree on partial or all grain being easier to carry out of the shop. I want to get out and brew on the deck soon as it warms up. I do have two kegs on tap now…Pumpkin Ale and Pilsner.(Brewhouse kits) I dry hopped the Pilsner with Citra hops and it worked out great. It tastes very similar to Muskoka Brewery “Detour”
