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 the fruit with the syrup, and set aside to add later. 
    2. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of 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, add in the lime juice and zest, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, and 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

Boysenberry Tart is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will make thiis brew every summer I used the old recipe and added the booster to bring up the ABV. This is the best brew I have made so far. The sweetness of the boysenberry and the tartness from the limes are perfect together. This brew brought me back to when I was in Key West 11 years ago and strolling down Duvall Street with my now wife. A friend of mine tried this brew and he said it was the best home made brews he has very tried. This is my new summer beer from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very refreshing I opened the first bottle after 1.5 months. The taste is refreshing, flavorful, awesome. You can still see some small particles from the boysenberry pure floating in the glass, but not enough to bother me for a home-made beer. The color is much darker than the one pictured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good but not my favorite. Wasn't hard to make. In fact it was exceptional for amount of carbonation. Had nice fizz to it. Flavor was more like a carbonated wine. The purple brown tint was a bit off putting to me. Not my most favorite yet. I'm still looking for a blend I really like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This pink beer is for everyone! This smooth delicious beer will be a summer favorite at our house. Not sweet but fruity and light. Well worth the effort to make. The top did blow off the keg several times in the first few days, but I probably had it on too tight.
