PROFILE:

An American IPA that is true to style: bitter, bold and hoppy. Pale malt strikes a fitting counterpoint to all the complexity of the hops that are classic for this style. Citrusy and floral, with notes of pine and resin and a bitterness that lingers. It’s all about the hops in this beer.

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download 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. Place contents of the pellet hops packets into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material. 
  3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. 
  4. Bring mixture to a boil, add in the hop sack, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, and pour contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort. 
  5. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back. 
  6. Pour the wort, including the hop sack, into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sack in the wort for the duration of fermentation. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk. 
  7. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
  8. 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.
  9. 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

Brew de Ale ze Bub is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mr. Beer description in my opion is spot on Fermented for (2)-weeks and conditioned for (3)-weeks before sampling. Nice appearance and perfect amount of head. Really get the full flavor of the hops. I usually refill my two lbks the day I bottle what ever beer is in the kegs. Right now I have a Klondike Gold that is being conditioned. Also just bottled a Hop Head Red and a Rockets Red Glare. I refilled the kegs with Surly Dog IPA and LBK IPA. I'm going to let this Brew de Ale ze Bub atleast one more week before sharing with friends. I'll review the other brews at a later date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and Bold I only made a couple of changes to this recipe. I tripled the amount of hops to 1-1-2 oz and I substituted Safale US-05 yeast for the standard yeast. Fermented for 3 weeks at 70 degrees F and bottle conditioned for the full recommended 6 weeks at the same temperature. Turned out big and bold with great aroma. Glad I added the additional hops. This is a very good brew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My standard to compare future IPAs.... This was an excellent beer for my first brew ever. I love IPAs-the more hoppy it is, the more I enjoy them. I added in some Falconer's hops to the recipe with a half cup of honey. I will make this again but would like to make it a bit stronger, both in hops and alcohol. The Diablo IPA has set the bar for my future beers, it was that tasty and enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tasting beer This is my first truly successful home brew. Very tasty with a good, but not over-powering hop profile. Good head. I let this ferment for 3 weeks and condition for 6 weeks. According to the hydrometer I had an original gravity of 1.055 and a final gravity of 1.009 for an ABV of 6.04%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great IPA! My fav so far Great Beer. Brewed this up and I love it, my friends loves it... life is just good. Not the recipes fault, but Im finding out Centennial hops are not my favorite. I wish I could see what hops are in the Diablo IPA HME. Any way, this recipe is great. Best beer Ive brewed from MB so far for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, mildly hoppy IPA I have brewed this recipe four times now, and it has become my favorite recipe so far in my three years of brewing with Mr. Beer. I added an extra 1/2 oz of Centinial hops in the last batch to give it a bit more hop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from IPA review The beer has decent hoppiness but the finish is too bitter. Would like a smoother finish to an IPA. Any ideas on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turned out okay A long time to brew and condition. I think it turned out "earthier" than I expected. Also tastes of pines and hops. Pours a dark brown w/ khaki head.
