*    Use sterilized containers with lids. Do not freeze the water. Use the chilled water to reach a satisfactory temperature.  Add yeast immediately.

** Try to maintain a cool, even temperature in the fermenter, ideally at 18°C. Place your fermenter next to brick walls or on a cement slab, or wrap it in a towel with one end in water, if the temperature is too high.  Use a Brewers Choice Brewing Thermostat and old fridge for optimum brewing conditions.
