My first brewing attempt (from a can) has just finished bottle fermenting and it turned out pretty bad (mostly just tasted very weak). I'm not concerned though, I know what mistakes I made along the way, and I'm already excited about my next batch.
For this next one, I want to ensure I have proper temperature control (one of my main mistakes). So, I've got this fridge spare. From what I understand, I'll need to buy the following items to control it:
Is this everything I need?
I was thinking, then I would try a Fresh Wort Kit (baby steps!). Is it then simply a matter of:
- Pour wort into fermenter
- Add appropriate yeast
- Put in fridge, set temperature, wait
- Bottle after FG is stable in a week or so
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the assistance :)
EDIT: one final question. With most Fresh Wort Kits - do I need to worry about storage time or temperature? Or is that only once fermentation begins?
