These simple instructions will familiarize you with the basic brewing procedures of the Mr. Beer homebrewing kit using this refill. This 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 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 4-quart mark on the back.
  4. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart 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 68°and 76° F (20°-25° C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

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 by visiting our help desk).

Aztec Mexican Cerveza Standard Refill is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Big Hit! Brewed this Mexican Cerveza at the beginning of June along with the Pale LME included in the deluxe kit. I let it ferment for 3 weeks, carbonate in the bottle 2 weeks, and then conditioned it in my basement for an additional 2 weeks. It is fantastic! I served it with a lime wedge to my nephew who lives in Texas (and knows a thing or two about cervezas). He said it was outstanding! I just placed another order for some more, so I can brew this for my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner in October. If you like Corona, you will love this beer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEtter Than I Imagined Prepared according to the recipe and fermented for three weeks. Bottle conditioned for four weeks. The results are outstanding, very smooth and refreshing. My wife detected a note of vanilla. It isn't Corona, it's better, and it's great with a slice of lime. I just ordered 2 more refills.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Aztec Mexican Cerveza: A Little Bit of A Miss When I first got my brewing kit, I couldn't wait to start brewing. I did the Grand Bohemian Pilsner first and loved it. Which this one though, I was expecting better. Maybe my brother and I brewed it wrong but it didn't taste the way we had hoped. It tasted a little more like Apple Juice than actual beer. This one was a hit of a miss. HOWEVER....I am willing to give this a second shot sometime in the future because as I stated we may have brewed it wrong, and that's probably why it tasted different to us. Just brewed the Bavarian Weissbier and can't wait to see how that turns out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Friends Favorite I brewed a batch straight up months ago. It does taste like a Corona but I wanted something more. I have had some luck creating my own recipes so, around end of September, I purchased again and added 12 oz honey in the wort along with about 6 oz fresh mint. Reccommend adding mint at end of boil. I made four holiday brews from Pumpkin to Apple and a Chocolate Stout but this one was everyone's favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great kit. No nothing to it. This was one of two kits that came with my Christmas gift. I had a few college grads try it and they actually said they would buy this beer -- in the store. I'm 42 years old-- drank lots of beers and I agree, this extract kit from Mr. Beer is proper. So ! Good On Ya Mate ! It's crisp, clean and original in taste and body. Great session beer. Goood drinking beer. BTW. If you want or think the head should be more just realize I had to stare at it for awhile before I decided to take a pic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Amber Ever I bought the Mexican Cerveza for two reasons. One, it's getting warmer and I wanted something to drink ice cold after working outside. Two, my beautiful wife is Hispanic and requested that I make it. Three and a half weeks later and we are not disappointed. Chilled just in time for Cinco de Mayo. It has a floral quality that is crisp and balanced. Goes down with guacamole, salsa, and a bowl of lime chips. Cheers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME flavor I bought and brewed this, before seeing the Fresco Chile Lime Beer refill on here. So I brewed this with two habanero peppers (cut in half). I want it for Cinco de Mayo. When I sampled it, the flavor was awesome. So much so, that I had to sample it multiple times before I bottled. It's going into the fridge tonight and the countdown to May 5th has already begun! Since I like heat, I put half a habanero in every other bottle.......might not share that info with my friends, but with the flavor of this, doubt they'll care.
