How much water do we add to our Irish res ale?

We re making Irish red ale with a crafting series. It should take around 3 hours. We re wondering how much water we need to put in after we put in the yeast (which we ve already done. We have 23 L with brew now , but the package doesn t say how much water er have to add in after adding the yeast.

Anyone have any ideas?

    You do not need to add any. A typical batch of brew ends at about 19L and starting fermentation with 23L is fine.

    Fermentations will take roughly a week and most homebrewers will allow the beer to ferment for about 2 weeks (many will transfer to a secondary fermenter after about 1 week)

    Most recipes for homebrew make 5 gallons. However, they take a lot more than three hours to ferment. The yeast package won't tell you; yeast reproduces to the point you need. Look at your recipe, something you should have done before starting.
