Cool wort to below 80°F, add to Primary fermentor, top with more water to make 5 Gal.
Take Hydrometer reading. Specific Gravity should be around 1.055-1.059
Aerate and Add yeast.
Keep primary in dark place and when the temp is consistent (wrap in a dark blanket/cloth if needed) Keep in Primary for about 7 days and the FG is 1.012-1.016 then transfer to Glass Carboy for another 7-10days.
(I kegged mine in a 5 gal Corney) but for bottling sanitize 48 12oz Bottles. Boil 1 cup of water and 5oz priming sugar for 5 minutes. Cool, then add to secondary, GENTLY mix as not to stir up the sediment. Then using a siphon fill bottles cap and drink after 4 weeks.
