Homebrew

1 lb. pure malt extract 1 lb. sugar 1 oz. hops

1 gallon water / teaspoon salt Yeast

Dissolve the malt extract, sugar and salt in the warmed water then add most of the hops and boil for ^ hour, adding the remainder of the hops five minutes before the end. Strain into a wide-necked jar so that it is filled to within 1 ^ inches of the top, and cover well.

When cool add the yeast which should be dried brewer's or lager type. The ferment should be complete within a week. When quite sure the ferment is complete, rack off and add 2 oz. of sugar, stirring thoroughly.

Bottle in screw-top bottles, and in a few days the homebrew will be sparkling and ready to drink.
