Beer Brewing

Brewing beer at Gallaghers’ in 6 easy steps:

Beer-481 Reserve Kettle     Beer-482 Choose a Recipe     Beer-483 Combine Ingredients

Beer-484 Make the Wort     Beer-485 Keg & Ferment     Beer-486 Bottle & Enjoy

Brewing a batch of beer at Gallaghers’ only takes about 2 hours total brew time.

When you arrive, we’ll talk with you about what styles of beer you enjoy, and help you choose a brew from among our over 50 different recipes (below). This is sometimes the hardest step, as we’ve got everything from Wheat Beers, to Pale Ales, to Ambers, to Stouts and everything in between. After that, we’ll assign you one of our copper clad steam fired, professional brewing kettles, and give you a very easy-to-follow instruction sheet. Then you begin crafting the beer of your dreams!

Once you’ve completed the brewing process, we’ll transfer your brew into one of our specialized fermenters and set a date for you to bottle your beer. The standard fermenting / aging time is only two weeks, then your very own craft beer will be ready for drinking and enjoying! On your bottling date, plan to spend about one hour sterilizing your bottles in our professional bottle sanitizer, bottling and then capping your brew. A full batch makes about 135 12oz bottles of the freshest beer you’ve every tasted! A half batch makes 66 12oz bottles. Storing your beer is easy too! If you just keep it in a cool, dark place, under the stairs is a great spot, your brew will be good for 3-6 months!

Sterilization

We have a professional bottle sterilization unit for your use.  All bottles must be run through the Sterilization System.

The sterilization system is is NOT a bottle washer.

YOU are responsible for inspecting and washing bottles which you have collected for bottling any brew at Gallaghers.

Sterilization of all bottles is required before bottling your brew beer or wine.


DIY Bottles TIP:

If you collect your own bottles it is best if you wash them and store them upside down to prevent any moisture or growth build up. You must use our bottle sterilization unit before bottling, but remember, the sterilization unit is not a bottle washer.  You are responsible for the cleanliness of your own bottles.
