For the true beer connoisseur, this package includes our 4 American Series Refills. From our "classic" Classic American Light to our ever popular American Porter, these carefully designed beers are sure to please.

THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES:

  • 1 American Lager Brewing Extract
  • 1 American Ale Brewing Extract
  • 1 American Porter Brewing Extract
  • 1 Classic American Light Brewing Extract

  • 8 Booster™ Pouch (2 for each refill)
  • 4 No-Rinse Cleanser Packets

    These simple instructions will familiarize you with the basic brewing procedures of the Mr. Beer homebrewing kit using these refills. Each refill will produce 8 liters of premium quality beer with approximately 5% alcohol by volume (ABV).


    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 from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, and then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and pour it into the hot water. Open both Booster™ packets and slowly pour into hot mixture while stirring. Continue to stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    3. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
    4. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    5. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
    6. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 65° and 75° F (18.3°-23.8° 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.
    7. 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 by visiting our help desk).

    American Series Standard Refill 4 Pack is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good variety! Mr. Beer refills are easy to brew. In as little as 4 weeks you can have 2 gallons of fresh beer. Condition it for a little longer and the taste improves. But, living in Canada and with our dollar being so low, it is no longer monetarily beneficial to continue at this time. So, having a Canadian branch and/or Canadian pricing would be a great option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love your product. When I bought my first Mr. Beer kit four or five years ago, I loved it. I still use it and enjoy all the flavors, including the international flavors. I never knew how easy it was to brew your own product at home with this kit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expired extract Watch out for extract with sticker of the "best before date". Extract was already 1 year past its best before date and it was wiped (but not clean enough) that you can still see the date printed in the can.
