Dampfbiers are truly the beer of the people. In the forests of Bavaria, it wasn't always easy or affordable to obtain the ingredients for beer, so what was at hand was often used. In this case, the process resulted in a wonderful outcome. All barley, it most closely resembles a lager from the grains, and gently hopped with a wheat yeast providing a twist of flavor that adds a pleasant surprise.

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions 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 (not needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Place the pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
    3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, add in the hop sack, then remove from heat.
    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the pouch of LME, pour the 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, 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 ONLY the Safbrew WB-06 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 59°and 75° F (15-24°C), ideally about 70° F and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 7-14 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 clicking on the "Help" tab of the website.)

Serf's Up Dampfbier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable wingman I've tried a variety of refills and recipes, across the spectrum offered by Mr. Beer. This is definitely one that I will repeat. I'm finally learning to be patient with them and let them rest a while before opening one up. I liked the smell, feel and taste of this, not overwhelming, and definitely a favorite to share with friends.
