STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)


NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER. 

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation. 

  1. In your sanitized blender, purée both cans of fruit with the syrup, and set aside to add later. 
  2. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of the Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
  3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. 
  4. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, pour contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort. 
  5. Fill keg with cold tap water to the 4-quart mark on the back.
  6. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Add in the fruit purée. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk. 
  7. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
  8. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 76° F (20°-25° C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days. 
  9. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface. 

Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks. 

After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process. 

Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Being a lover of fruit and especially blueberries, I was very excited to find this recipe and it was on sale at the time. I followed the directions to the letter to ensure the best results and was sadly disappointed. I cannot detect the blueberry in this beer. I'm hoping that with further conditioning this will change, but after the initial conditioning as prescribed the blueberry flavor is woefully lacking. If someone can recommend a way to increase the berry flavor I'd appreciate it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW, GREAT FLAVOR!!! This is my 10th batch of MR BEER brew. My first of the pumpkin spice ale. My best success yet! I brewed on 11-26-13, bottled on 1-15-14 and put it on ice 2-24-14. today is 3-9-14 and I'm having my first one. WOW, what great flavor! I added a little more Mulling spice and added 2 TBsp black pepper corns. Most flavorful beer yet. Crisp and clear. not cloudy like some of my total failures!Very happy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Developed nicely given time Brewed November 2012, bottled December 2012. Used 1# light dme in place of booster. Seemed harsh at first, but drinkable eventually. Let one bottle cold condition for 8 months and tried it last night. Wow! Time really worked it's magic. SWMBO even liked it. Didn't think I would brew it again until the last bottle changed my mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OFF THE HOOK! This is one of the best recipes I've brewed so far, and definitely the most crisp beer I've brewed. My friends are impressed and their wives and girlfriends who normally don't like the taste of beer LOVE this one. The spices give this beer the aftertaste of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This recipe made me blue.... Have brewed 5 or 6 batches of beers and this one was a huge disappointment for me. After fermenting 2 weeks, and conditioning for a month, the beer came out sour! Ugh, I was hoping for a better result given the previous reviews, but I could not recommend this brew to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beer Brewed this about a month ago, was my second batch ever brewing.. Wow it came out awesome, let it ferment for 3 weeks and bottle for 4, well worth the wait. Will definitely brew this one again!
