    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 place the unopened can in hot tap

    2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, mix in the 2 packets of
    Booster, stir untill dissolved and bring the mixture to a boil.

    3. Once boiling add in the lime juice and zest then remove the pot from heat. 

    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract, and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
    This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    5. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be
    approximately 1 gallon of water. 

    6. Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water.
    (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark). 

    7. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    8. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 70° and 78° F (21°-25° C), and out of direct
    sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.


    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 5 out of 5 by KingKong from Summer in a bottle... I tried my first bottle of this on a cold, rainy May afternoon, but this is really a summer beer; perfect from Memorial Weekend, through July's mid-summer heat, right on through to late August's waning days of summer. Keep a pipeline of this beer throughout the summer. The obvious comparison is to Bud Light Lime, and it's pretty close, and yet SO much better with it's natural flavors, natural carbonation, and fluffy head. Goes with pretty much every summer activity you can think of. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by bman from Absolutely Great Made this because the girlfriend likes budlight with lime in it but not Budlight lime, So thought we would try this recipe to see if the lime flavor was more in line with what she was looking for. This recipe hit a homerun with her and I cannot keep enough of it on hand to keep her happy. It is always going to be in production according to her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Bud1 from Great Summer Brew! Great Summer Beer. Can definitely taste both flavors of peel zest & lime juice so you can add more or less of each to change the profile to suit your taste buds. I fermented for 3 weeks, carbonated for 3 weeks then conditioned in the fridge for a month. The beer need time to condition to allow the lime zest & juice flavors to mellow out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Kegger from Must have this thirst-quencher every summer! I'm a seasonal beer drinker, and usually a good Hefe is my go-to beer in the summertime. I also enjoy an excellent lime pale ale made by Elysian, so when I saw this beer was brewed with limes, I wanted to give it a try. I'm really glad I did! This is an awesome summer beer! The color was a deep gold and the lime makes it very refreshing. I tried it after two weeks, but the three week mark was the ticket. Can't wait to make this again next summer, but want to hop it up with some citra hops to see what I get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigdave from Great summer time beer!! I bought this kit about 2 months ago, I brewed it up as soon as I got it. Had it bottled for about 3 weeks now. Opened one up today to try it out, I'm very happy an excited I got it. It's a great beer to have on a nice warm day after a long day of yard work. I think I'm going to let it condition one more week or so and think it will be even better. Glad I got this kit, I see my self drinking it on a nice warm day while I'm grilling out!! Excited to share it with my friends and family....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brewmaster Jim from "Crisp and Refreshing" Have been making this recipe for 2 years. EVeyone who tries it loves it and I can't keep enough on hand durring the summer backyard BBQ. Great taste and goes down easy. Very refreshing. Very nice while sitting around the pool on a hot summer day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Montana Blue from Get ready for summer! I used this as a base to create a lemon shandy by adding the juice and zest of four lemons to the fermenter. The brew is still conditioning but if it tastes anything like the sample I pulled, it’s going to be the perfect summer refresher.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Eriebrewer from Taste great Next time I will order the deluxe canadian blonde as I hope to never again use a kit with booster packs. They take forever to dissolve. I would rather deal with the hot break when using DME but it was tasty after 14 days in the bottle.

    Looking to brew a beer similar to a Michelob Ultra. Girlfriend's favorite. From the reviews it seems like this is a good match. If i leave out the lime would that affect the flavor much?
