You will need:


  • 1 Can Mangrove Jack Dutch Lager
  • 1 Kg Brew Booster
  • Lager/Pilsner Grain Pack
  • 15 Grams Hallertau Hops Pellets
  • 1 Saaz Hop bag
  • Saflager yeast.



  1. Chill 5-10 litres of water in advance*.
  2. Place Lager/Pilsner Pack and 1 litre of hot tap water in a bowl. Steep for 30 mins.
  3. Strain the grain through a sieve into a saucepan. Rinse the grain with another 500mls hot water and collect this liquid in the saucepan as well.
  4. Bring the liquid to the boil, add Hallertau hops pellets and simmer for 10 mins.
  5. Take saucepan off the heat and add Saaz Hop Bag. Leave to steep for 10 mins.
  6. Add Dutch Lager kit and Brew Booster to fermenter.
  7. Add malt and hop liquid to fermenter, leaving hop bag to the side.
  8. Add chilled and tap water to fill fermenter to 22 litres below 25°C and stir well.
  9. Sprinkle in Saflager yeast and hop bag. Seal fermenter and store in cool conditions**.



* Use sterilized containers with lids. Do not freeze the water. Use chilled water to reach a satisfactory temperature and add yeast immediately. Leaving your fermenter to cool before adding yeast significantly increase the risk of introducing bad bacteria into your brew


** Try to maintain a cool even temperature in the fermenter, ideally 12°C.  Place fermenter on a concrete slab or tiled surface or place fermenter in a container, add some water, wrap it in a towel with one end in water. Use a Brewers Choice Brewing Thermostat in an old fridge for optimum brewing conditions all year round.
