    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast, and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2. Screw on lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close

    4. Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5. After all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to top of keg, proceed immediately to 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 remove the label from the can. Place the unopened can and LMEs in hot tap water

    2. Using the clean measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your 4-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, and then remove pot from heat.

    3. Open packets of BrewMax LME and the can of brewing extract and pour it into the pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture is the wort.

    4. Fill the keg with cold water to line mark 1 on the back. The water must be cold (ideally from the refrigerator) with a temperature of 40-55°F/4-12°C. For the best results, we recommend using bottled spring water or filtered tap water. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    5. Pour the wort into the keg and then bring the volume of the keg up to line mark 2 by adding more cold water. Mix vigorously with the plastic spoon/ whisk. Be careful to not scratch the inside of the keg, which could create small spaces for bacteria to grow. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

    6. Sprinkle the entire yeast packet into the keg and then screw on the lid.Do not stir.

    7. Allow your fermenter to sit for 10-14 days.

    Store the fermenter in a cool, dark place between 68-78°F/20-26°C for the yeast to work properly. The ideal temperature range is 70-72°F / 21-22°C. After a few days the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. However, the yeast is still at work, slowly finishing the fermentation process.


    After 14 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (17 total). At this point, it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use

    2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw-on caps (or cover with a metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solutions into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3. Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide. 

    4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5. Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6. Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off-flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer

    Rated 3 out of 5 by DJ93 from Inactive brew I was super excited to try this refill out after having terrific success with my last aztec brew. I was really looking forward to this one as it would have more of a profile I was looking to achieve. Sadly it seems my yeast went inactive on me. Prepped right and showed signs of health before mixing in. Wasn't mixed in too hot a wort. Who knows, I'm a week into fermenting and little signs of any krausen or activity. Crossing my fingers that if I stick with it, it'll emerge fine. Not giving it a terrible review cause things do happen and I'm sure it tastes great when it brews. I'd be willing to give it another shot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Tim from Good Mexican brew It's a very good tasting brew. Pour in a glass with a lime wedge you will be surprised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb T from Azteca Deluxe Refill I love the Azteca brew - for this one I experimented and added a Trader Joe's lime popsicle, limoncello and a little bit of fresh OJ - and 1 1/2 boosters and a Pale LME. Can't wait to try it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Joseph from Excellent flavor I'm definitely hooked on this one. Smooth, no lime needed in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by pl stupid from What I did on my summer vacation By Ol' Stupid I love this style of beer. I don't consider myself to be a knowledgeable beer hound...I just like this beer. I used to drink Miller Lite. Now I like the ice beers. When I make beer I make higher abv Lite type beers. Lagers and Pilsners. Very few Ales. Mr. Beer has just what I need to make my kind of beer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by AlanW from Not Sure I bought my first batch 4/24 I followed the instructions but after bottling into 12oz bottles with 1/2tsp sugar per bottle. 2 weeks + combination and 48hrs+ conditioning I got no carbonation. Tried again on 5/24 same set up but added 2 packs of Nottingham yeast instead of one then 3/4 tsp sugar per bottle but got same results. Just a head scratcher. So personally I can't recommend this beer. I have made the Whispering Wheat Hefeweizen and have excellent results so I will just stick to German style beers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by keljr66 from Totally blown away This was one of the beers that came with the kit which I got for Christmas. Purchased the LME Pale pack. I was totally blown away by how great this beer tasted. I've made 3 beers with the kit so far and this is hands down the best I've made so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by chasjake from A good pale beer I have found it more difficult to brew the pale beers compared to the darker beers. However, I have brewed this a few times and it came out great each time. The high success rate puts this towards the top of my list.

    Do I need to buy carbonation drops with whichever refill I get or are the included?

    Asked by: Carbonation drops
    Carbonation drops, at this time, are only included with our Craft series. The Stanard & Deluxe refills, along with our Recipes, do not come with them. However, you can use regular sugar in their place if you need to. The chart for how much to use is on the product page. Cheers!

    What is the correct brewers yeast for the Mexican cerveza? We got the kit and mixed up the 2 packets and don't remember which packet goes to which mix

    Asked by: Tenbats
    While all the yeasts are a little different, based on the refill, any of the gold packs will work in any recipe. They are all primarily based around Cooper's yeast and will perform well regardless of the refill. Happy brewing!

    What’s the difference between the standard and the delux Mexican beer?

    Asked by: George1970
    Hello, Standards come with Boosters, which are a mixture of corn solids meant to mimic the carbohydrate profile of dry light malt. Booster does not change your flavor but does up your alcohol volume. Deluxe comes with two packets of liquid malt extract (LME). These also increase your ABV but they also enhance the flavor and over all quality of your beer. Cheers!

    Can you allow the beer to ferment for more than 10-14 days? Can it ferment for up to a month?

    Asked by: Jdub
    Some of our beers can stay in the fermenter for s month, but we do not recommend doing this with regular refills, such as this one. Your beer can become oxidized or infected.

    What’s the difference between “standard “ and “deluxe “? Thank you!

    Asked by: DEFdawg78
    Hello! Standard comes with Boosters as the ABV enhancer. The Booster does not change the flavor. The Deluxe comes with 2 packets of 100% liquid malt instead of Boosters. Because of this, the Deluxe has slightly more alcohol and more flavor due to the malt. Cheers!

    I recently purchased the Aztec Deluxe Refill , I followed directions to the tee . My OG was 1.046 and the FG was 1.012 which puts me at ABV of 4.52 . Your website says it should be ABV 5.7 . Am I doing the math wrong ?

    Asked by: joe66

    Why does this come with 2 pale LMEs when the recipe calls for only 1?
