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 starch, 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 and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Place the contents of both 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. Then bring water to a boil, add in the hop sack, then remove from heat. 
    4. Open the Brewing Extract and LME, and pour the contents into the hot water mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    5. Fill keg with cold tap water to the 4-quart 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 8.5-quart 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. Screw the lid onto the keg. Do not stir. 
    8. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 68°and 76° F (20-24°C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 7-14 days.
    9. 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 rising bubbles 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 to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by drinking12many from Overall a Keeper Like some of the others I was hoping for a bit more hoppy flavor and aroma. I did get a bit more than some of the other reviews it seems because I did boil the hops for about 10-15 minutes before added the HME. It was to be expected that this would not be IPA hop like flavor but overall its been one of my most enjoyable brews with a good finish and just the right caramel taste. I shared a bottle with a friend and he to liked the subtle hops flavor that was not as over powering as an IPA. My wife who also does not generally like hoppy brews really enjoyed this one as well and has asked me to brew another batch. Overall if your looking for something with a bit of hop flavor but not to much this may be the beer for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vakko from Amazing IPL I'm a maltier preference drinker. However, I prefer lagers over ales. So the concept of an IPL intrigued me and I figured I should give it a try. On the lead up to this beer being ready to drink, I have been tasting other IPA's and IPL's from major commercial brewers. This beer blew them away! This is after 3 weeks fermenting at 55F and 1 week carbonating at 76F. Immediately, I took the rest of my batch and placed them back into 55F slow the flavor change. That's how good it is. While it's not a huge abv beer, the flavor is great and not overpowering with unnecessary grapefruit destroying the rest of the beer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ICEdaddy from Smooth, yummy, you will want to drink mo Excellent recipe. I like ESBs, especially on tap when I was in the UK many years ago. This delivers. Malty, slightly hoppy, smooth, not bitter in the least, and just addictingly good and true to the style. The flavor of the Northern Brewer hops comes through (this is my favorite hop so far, a flavor found in California steam beers as well). This beer is the sort that you just want to drink just for drinking sake, no need to pair it food or snacks or whatever. Hard to drink just one. Will definitely brew again. Of note, (after sitting in the keg for almost 3 weeks) at bottling this tasted fantastic, but I snuck one early figuring it had to be amazing even after only 8 days. It was not good. But after 3 weeks in the bottle, it was already killer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ICEdaddy from Hoppy stout This is the second batch I brewed. The first one, American Light, came out much better than I expected (I thought it might resemble a Lite American beer) and was a very pleasant surpise and highly drinkable, 4 to 5 star brew, and worth rebrewing. For this brew, while I like some commercially brewed (non-dry) stouts, the addition of hops in this one was too strong for my taste. As a disclosure, I tend to like malty beers rather than hoppy ones so this was probably not a wise choice for my tastes. I think this would have been much better without the hops. I could not taste the oatmeal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeremy from Not bad-- not amazing. I bought this because of the long lead time on another beer here on the site. Followed the instructions, and brewing was easy. Unfortunately, at least in my case, this came out very cloudy and had too much sludge in the bottom of the tub. I was only able to bottle a little less than 3 six packs worth. Because of that, the price per bottle was too high... That being said, what I did get to drink was pretty good. Nice body, with a smooth finish. I'd buy again but prefer the Belgian Abbey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LBK from Blueberries for days I normally add fruit after a week in the LBK to get a more pronounced fruit flavor. Instead I added both cans right at day 0. There is ALOT of blueberries in the final product. And this was maybe my fifth fruit brew. The two cans really does kick up the blueberry flavor a notch. The pureed blueberries grab onto the co2 bubbles in the beer to make by far the coolest beer I have ever brewed. You see blueberry chucks in the head and floating up and down in the beer. I think if I had conditioned it longer (I only did 4 weeks) it would have been a more mellow taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cherbeer from Not too hoppy, well balanced, good color This was a great beer. It was well balanced and not too hoppy. I like a really hoppy beer, but this was a nice balanced. This is not too dark, I'd say between a IPA and a Pale Ale. It will appeal to a lot of different people. Probably the best flavored one to date. Its a good idea to let it condition a week longer than recommended. I had friends say it reminded them of Sam Adams. Not sure if that was a good thing or not. I however thought it tasted better than Sam Adams.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tonedog from it packs a wollap. be careful. I actually gave it more time to ferment in my tub. It was completely covered to escape any light as well. It even blew the tap off. I am trying to figure out where i went wrong. I was hoping that the plastice keg would accomodate the extra combustion of the recipe. I will have try this recipe again only watch it more closely. Not totally frustrated but would like to have had a better heads up in the instructions. Maybe a 50%discount on my next try perhaps???
