8 Liter Fermenter

LBK is a completely reusable designed fermenter which minimizes yeast transfer and has a unique venting system. The LBK makes 2 gallons of award-winning beer every time you brew. Since it is not made of glass, this fermenter is lightweight and can withstand much more abuse than your typical glass carboy. No need to worry about dropping this little guy!


All Grain Brewing Extract

Formulated and produced by master brewers at Coopers Brewery in Australia using the highest quality barley and hops.

Each kit includes American Lager Refill -- Rich golden color, an exceptionally well balanced full malt flavor, and mild bitterness with a subtle hint of finishing hop aroma. This beer is the perfect example of the typical American lager style, and is a great beer for all occasions.

   

No Rinse Cleanser

This is a No-Rinse Cleanser that cleans and disinfects with oxygen, and doesn't require rinsing when used to disinfect. When used properly, it will not contribute to off flavors to your beer. This single pouch will prepare both keg and bottles for one batch of beer.

Included with every kit are our easy to use step-by-step printed instructions.
You can also see and download them from our help page.

Available in English, Español and François.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Uncle Monkey from Easy as 1-2-3: Fun, Fascinating, Delicious My kit was a gift. It took awhile for me to open it since it arrived as we were packing for relocation. The onset of winter seemed to be the perfect time to break out the kit. The entire process was surprisingly easy. I followed each step carefully and consistently as possible. The storage room originally selected for brewing became too cold after the first week so relocated it to a warmer interior closet. I extended the brewing time by a few days to compensate for the slow/cold start. Bottling was easy and I used the same interior closet for storage. I just opened the first bottle and was amazed at the wonderful carbonation, color, and flavor. Very tasty indeed! The entire process was fun, fascinating, and delicious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kosmo from Best Gift Ever Bought About ten years ago my mother had the excrutiating task of trying to find a Christmas gift for my father. It's not easy considering my father is a jack of all trades but also owns most of the items for all those trades. She was desperate and wandered into what was then a great gift store, CVS. Low and behold on the shelf on sale for $25 was a Mr. Beer starter kit. She didn't think it was going to amount to much but thought it would be a fun thing to try. 10 years later my father has a whole system set up in his brewing kitchen with about 5 Mr. Beer sets. This set was the start of an unexplored passion for my father and even after 10 years we remain faithful to the Mr. Beer name. No one else compares in quality and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by darrenjohn from Great easy way to brew I got this starter kit as a Christmas gift from my wife and at first I wasn't sure how well I could brew with it. I took on my first batch following the directions very carefully and was amazed at how good it tasted. Only problem I had was the last bottle I filled from the brew keg as the dregs deposited a lot of sediment in the bottle so I didn't drink that one. I liked this kit so much I bought a 2 pack refill kit with Mexican Cerveza and an Oktoberfest beer and now after trying the Mexican beer it's pretty good. The compact size is also just ideal since I don't have much room for a larger setup with big fermenters and carboys and all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jury from Great Experience I got this as a birthday gift from my brother Jason from Portland, OR. I had never heard of anything like this and I didn't know it existed but I have already had fun making the light beer that was included in the kit and I also made a blackberry cider which I was really excited about because I am really more of a cider guy! The cider turned out really good as well. The final product is just that much more enjoyable because you made it! Really great product and really easy for a novice to just pick up and run with but I am sure also very cool for the seasoned vet as well! Love the product!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gary6R from Turned Out Okay I was looking for a relatively-simple homebrew mix and this was that. Can't say it resembled the list of mass-marketed commercial beers noted in the description. The closest probably the S-A Boston Lager; certainly in the color (much more amber that SRM 3), though the flavor here was richer, malt-wise. (Not a bad flavor, though, just richer and fuller than the U.S. commercial varieties.) Giving it my personal grade of B-. It's okay, not great. May or may not try it again, since there are so many other varieties I must check out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ernie from 2nd time brewer Being that this is only my second time brewing I think I will experiment a little. The first time I brewed I think I was to excited and just couldn't wait.... It turned out good and was drank in just a couple days. This time I am going to wait give it a little longer to ferment an extra week .. My advice to anyone trying it for the first time DON'T RUSH IT...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigdawg929 from Perfect Kit For A Beginner I have always wanted to attempt to brew my own beer at home but didn't have the knowledge of going about it properly. I received this kit as a gift and at first I was apprehensive about the quality of the final product and whether or not the instructions would be in terms I would understand. Both were put to pasture. Every step was clearly understandable and easy to follow and were given explanations for why the process is the way it is. In the end, my first batch of homemade brew was fantastic and truly looking forward to exploring the other styles Mr. Beer has available for the home brewer. With this starter kit you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny B from Two Thumbs Up for American Lager! My daughter gave me my first Mr Beer kit as a Christmas present. She picked the American Lager and I’m so happy she did. I’ve never made beer before and although I was slightly concern how it would come out, I had my first sample of a bottle tonight and the quality, taste and color exceeds my expectations! The instruction provided with the kit were pretty clear to follow and I’d recommend any first time brewers read the instructions from start to finish before brewing so you know what must be done to make great beer, how long it takes and temperature guidelines for the bottling and fermenting. The great thing is, you don’t refrigerate it until a day or two before you want to drink it. The rest of the time you keep it in a cool dark place. I’m stoked how good it taste and it was made in my house! Thanks Mr Beer!
