<p></p> <hr /> <h3><b>STEP 1: Sanitizing</b></h3> <div> <p>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. <b>Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:</b><b></b></p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> </div> <div><hr /></div> <h3><b>STEP 2: BREWING</b></h3> <p>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.</p> <p>1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of brewing extract, then remove the label from the can. Place the unopened can in hot tap water</p> <p>2. Using the clean measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your 4-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, and then remove pot from heat.</p> <p>3. Open packet of BrewMax LME and the can of brewing extract and pour it into the pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture is the wort.</p> <p>4. Fill the keg with cold water to line mark 1 on the back. The water must be cold (ideally from the refrigerator) with a temperature of 40-55°F/4-12°C. For the best results, we recommend using bottled spring water or filtered tap water. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.</p> <p>5. Pour the wort into the keg and then bring the volume of the keg up to line mark 2 by adding more cold water. Mix vigorously with the plastic spoon/ whisk. Be careful to not scratch the inside of the keg, which could create small spaces for bacteria to grow. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).</p> <p>6. Sprinkle the entire yeast packet into the keg and then screw on the lid.Do not stir.</p> <p>7. Allow your fermenter to sit for 10-14 days.</p> <p>Store the fermenter in a cool, dark place between 68-78°F/20-26°C for the yeast to work properly. The ideal temperature range is 70-72°F / 21-22°C. After a few days the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. However, the yeast is still at work, slowly finishing the fermentation process.</p> <div><hr /></div> <h3><b>STEP 3: Bottling & Carbonating </b></h3> <p>After 10 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 4 more days (14 total). At this point it is time to bottle. <i>Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.</i></p> <p><i></i>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.</p> <p>2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw on caps (or cover with 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 solution into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.</p> <p>3. Add 2 <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="https://www.mrbeer.com/mrbeer-carbonation-drops" target="_blank">Carbonation Drops</a></span> 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 <a href="https://www.mrbeer.com/mrbeer-carbonation-drops" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">this table as a guide</span></a>. </p> <p>4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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 to sit for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. </p> <div><hr /></div> <h3><b>Tip from our Brewmasters</b></h3> <p>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. <b></b></p> <p>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.</p>
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jriv83 from One of my favorites This is one refill that I return to regularly. I have always been happy with the results each time I have used it. It's also a good choice for using it in a variety of ways. My wife and I really enjoy the Beach Babe Blond recipe where this is used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BH in NC from Very Canadian! I didn't brew this deluxe refill exactly - I had purchased the International Pack and decided to try an experiment so I bought one extra Pale LME bag and that's how how I brewed my Canadian Blonde. However, it turned out awesome. It has a nice full mouth feel and mild fruity flavor. I would say it's not very hoppy, but that's not a bad thing. If I want hoppy, I'll brew an IPA. This one kind of reminds me of Molson Canadian, but it's been a long time since I had it, so please don't hold me to it. Also, this is the first batch (half of it, anyway) I force carbed using my new toy - A Growlerwerks uKeg. As a new brewer, I learned the hard way that you should leave a bit of headspace in the growler in order for the carbing process to work. My first glass was flat, so I let it sit another two days in the fridge and now it's perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BIGDOG from Additions to this Refill Got this this past Christmas. I have made this before but added just 16oz of honey to it and it was great. This time I added 16 oz of honey and about 12 oz of molasses. fermented it 2 weeks , and bottled and tasted it after 1 week OMG it was dark brown and had a slight sweet taste. Waited about a Month and it has gotten a little darker and the sweetness is the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jag27 from Now a favorite I got this as a present from my kids in February and finally got a chance to brew it this simmer. I added 1/2 cup Honey to the mix. I never have "altered" Mr Beer recipes before but and was really pleased with the results. Everyone in the family gave it a 2 thumbs up, even the non beer drinkers

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kingweld from Good beer and a great accessory Good beer. It is definitely worth the wait to keep the brew in the fermenter for 10 days and in the bottles for 14 days before drinking. I used to do the seven days in the fermenter and 7 days in the bottles and then drink the beer but the improvement in the quality by waiting 24 days instead of 14 makes the beer so much better. Mr. Beer sells a great accessory that they don't promote but is worthwhile for the small cost - The brewing wand assembly makes bottling a lot quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ed Gruber from Good beer, eh? This was my first brew that did not use booster. The taste of this kit was a surprise. My dad exclusively drinks Moosehead so I bought this brew for him, as it is not my favorite. I put this up there with the Oktoberfest and Weissbier in terms of fullness of flavor, body, lack of bitterness. I will brew this again.

With the deluxe refill, I received (2) Pale LME packets that were to be added to the Canadien Blonde mix, correct? Thanks
That is correct. The Deluxe Refills come with 2 packets of LME.
