Sanitize Everything but the pot you will boil in.

Bring the proper amount of water to a near boil, add the extract.

Once the wort is at a rolling boil, start the hop schedule.

Cool the wort as fast as you can with whatever means you have.

Siphon it to a bucket, pitch the yeast and wait two weeks.
