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. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    2. Place the pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, add in honey and hop sack, then remove from heat.
    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and pour it into the 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, including the hop sack, into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sack in the wort for the duration of fermentation. 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.)

Horse's Ass Ale is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best so far This beer turned out to be the best I've brewed so far, The hoppy flavor really came through I boiled the hops for about five minutes and I added a little more than the 1 cup of honey the recipe calls for, I also let it ferment 3 weeks and condition for 4 weeks, used sugar instead of carbonating drops. This had a very creamy head, no after taste and the flavor was better than any other beer I have made. Will be brewing this on again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Astounding Golden Ale! I started brewing this recipe in late December 2014 and bottled it on January 17th, after cold-crashing for three (3) days. I let it carbonate-condition for a full six (6) weeks before cracking one open... I must say it tastes FANTASTIC. The honey flavor is hard to find but boy is it smooth and has a nice head to boot. I have three (3) LBK's and will always try to have this recipe brewing in one of 'em... good job Mr. Beer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Brew! I brewed this one June 17th and bottled it on July 8th. I tried 2 at the 4 week mark and they were green. I let them set another week and I've got to say, what a difference time makes! I boiled the hops for about 3 minutes and I can taste the hops!! It's not over powering but very balanced. I've got two more batches conditioning and I can't wait to drink them! Best one I've brewed so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This was my 3rd batch that I ever made and it was a blast to make! It's currently conditioning in bottles and can't wait to try the finished product. I tasted it before bottling and was shocked at how good it tasted before the carbination. I think this will be a great summer time drink! I added a little more honey and some extra sugar to up the ABV and know the honey will dry it out a little more, but if it tasted as good as it did before I bottled, can't wait to open this sucker up in a week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This horse is in the winners circle I just wanted to try this one and I am glad I did, this one goes into the winners circle. Very easy to make but I tweaked the recipe a bit. I added some Coriander and zest of an orange to the brew. This is a very easy drinkable beer. I could drink this one everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This horse wins the race I wasn't really sure what to expect from this one or if I would like it, but I wanted to try it. Man, I'm glad I did. Not a big, complicated brew, but not a boring, plain one either. The flavor of the honey is very subdued; it's there if you search for it, but mainly, it just lightens the body and ups the abv a little. This one plays like a slightly hoppy cream ale. It tastes good without much conditioning, too. A winner.
