Step 1: Sanitize equipment Sanitize everything that will come in contact with the wort using sodium percarbonate and then rinse thoroughly. Tip Use a bleach solution. Add two capfuls of bleach per five gallons of water. Step 2: 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. Tip Leave room inside the bucket, as the wort expands during aeration. Step 3: Aerate Attach the paint mixer to the power drill. Stand directly over the bucket, submerge the mixer, and turn the drill on. Step 4: Mix Mix until the desired level of air is incorporated into the wort; a few minutes are usually sufficient. Be careful of spills. Step 5: Let settle Give the foam enough time to settle before topping off with the desired amount of water. Did You Know?
