You Will Need
- Sodium percarbonate
- A fermenting bucket
- 5-gal. paint mixer drill attachment
- A power drill
- Bleach (optional)
Sanitize everything that will come in contact with the wort using sodium percarbonate and then rinse thoroughly.
Cool the wort
Cool the wort to between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit before introducing air into it. Transfer the cooled wort to the fermenting bucket.
Attach the paint mixer to the power drill. Stand directly over the bucket, submerge the mixer, and turn the drill on.
Mix until the desired level of air is incorporated into the wort; a few minutes are usually sufficient. Be careful of spills.
Give the foam enough time to settle before topping off with the desired amount of water.
