    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. mill the malt grains for 10 sec/speed 7 - set aside
  2. fill in 1.2 liters water and heat it up 3 min/50C/speed 1 - during this time, slowly fill the milled/shredded grains through the mixing bowl lid
  3. Once the malt is all in, increase the temperature to 60C and let it "cook" for 40 min/60C/speed 1.

    After 40 min, increase the temperature once more to 70C and let it run for 30 min/70C/speed 1.

    Finally 1 min/80C/ speed 1.

    Now sieve the mixture through a muslin cloth, coffee filter or very fine mesh into an extra bowl. Make sure you filter out all the chunks.
  4. Transfer the liquid back into your Thermomix bowl and fill it up with the rest of the water to the max mark (2 or 2.2l - depending on your TM model).

    Now ad 1 g of the hop! It's really only a very little amount tmrc_emoticons.-) and "cook" the beer for 55 min/100C/Speed 1.

    Ad the rest of the hop 1 g and cook again for 5 min/100C/Speed1.

    Strain again through your filter of choice the liquid into a separate bowl/large jar where you will store the beer. Be careful the liquid is very hot!

    Let the "young beer" cool down until you have about 20C. Then whisk in the brewers yeast with a spoon.

    Cover the bowl/jar with a cloth or a loose lid, so air can escape, but no dirt will fall in.
  5. Let the "young beer" now rest for 5-7 days.

    The yeast will sink down to the bottom of the jar. The beer is ready once no bubbles will be produced.

    After 7 days you can transfer the beer into either a keg or in bottles. If using bottles, add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to each.

    When using a keg, ad 2 teaspoons of sugar to the lot. This will kick off the carbonation process.
  6. When pouring the beer, make sure you do not transfer too much of the yeast from the bottom of your jar. Otherwise your beer will taste "too yeasty".
  7. Now let the beer rest for another 7 days before you can put it in the fridge and it's ready to drink!

Tip

I've found my beer ingredients on ebay. When ordering the malt, make sure you order it "uncracked" as this will extend the shelf life.

The more malt you are using, the stronger your beer will get. The more hop you are using, your beer will become bitter.

This recipe has roughly 5% Vol alcohol and tasted more towards a "Wheat beer" rather than a "Lager" - but I guess that needs a bit playing around with different malt and hop sorts.

I have found this recipe in a German Thermomix Magazine and tried and tested it here before I've decided to translate and share it here on the Australian Recipecommunity with you. I like the idea that it has all "pure" ingredients rather then other home brew mixes that are available in the local supermarkets.

Prost!

    Happy to share what I've used... I'm guessing it's a bit trial and error and the whole art of beer making is a combination of different hops and malt grains tmrc_emoticons.-)

    2 grams is really only very little! I've used a different kitchen scale, since the TMX only weighs in 5 g increments... I'd say it's less then half a teaspoon acutally - but I've used pallets
