    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, it's not needed for this recipe, then place the unopened can and BrewMax LMES 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, then remove from heat. 

    3. Open the can of Brewing Extract and BrewMax LME's and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    4. 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. 

    5. 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).

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

    7. Sprinkle the S-04 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 76° 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 4 out of 5 by MightyKTC from Great Session Beer This is the first bock I've brewed and I was really happy with the result. Pours a dark amber with a sweet malty smell with hints of toffee and molasses. There was not much of a head to the beer or any significant lacing left on the glass, but it was a very smooth, easy to drink beer. Good session beer imo. Considering it's a pretty basic recipe, this one came out just as good as a bock you would get at a local German restaurant. Cheers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Thumbs Up Brewing from Great beer for fans of Shiner Bock I love Shiner Bock and Ziegenbock beers. Ziegenbock is A-B's clone of Shiner, mostly available in Texas where Shiner is from. This is a very good clone recipe. And, you folks at Mr. Beer, it is "Shiner", not "Shinner", y'all!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Badger from OK then, 4 stars it is. Smooth, rich, not bitter. Nice finish. No big wow, as it seemed to be a bit flat, but that may be just the style. Really good head and nice dark amber color. Balanced, I had fermented it the lbk for 2 weeks and conditioned it for 4 weeks with an additional week in the frig. My wife enjoyed it more so than me, but again that may just be me. I give a 3+, the wife a solid 4. Haven't tasted a Shiner or a Bock in years, so just going on what's in front of me. So there ya go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by JRCasual brewer from Smooth taste Probably the lightest tasting dark beer I’ve ever had. Mild but pleasant taste that will go with a nice meal or just by itself.

    You certainly could! That is really up to your personal preference. Cheers!
