    PROFILE:

    This quintessential American pale ale promises the perfect balance that the IPA style is known for. A crisp, amber color greets the eyes, while aromas of floral hops welcome the nose. A variety of caramel malts impart a rich flavor, while the Crystal hops add some zest and aroma to offer a balanced finish.

    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 (not needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
        2. Place the contents of the pellet hops packets 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, then bring water to a boil, add in hop sack, then remove from heat
        4. Open the Brewing Extract and the LME, and 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 #1 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 #2 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 Safale US-05 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 71.6° F (15°-22° C) and out of direct sunlight. 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.
        9. You’ll ferment for 21 days total. 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.)
