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. In your sanitized blender, purée the fruit with the syrup, and set aside to add later. 
    2. 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.
    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, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, 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 4-quart mark on the back.
    6. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Add in the fruit purée. 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 68° and 76° F (20°-25° C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 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 bubbles rising 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by KingKong from Solid but nothing special What I was hoping for with this, given the ingredients, was something that tasted like the "Jamaica Mon" recipe but with some hops to balance the maltiness of that brew. Vaguely, this beer almost achieves that, but yet I found it somewhat underwhelming compared to other MrBeer recipes I've tried; it's almost like the hops and the malt cancel each other out rather than complement each other.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Blacksmithcrm from Read the forum to make this one better I loved the idea, but the chocolate and cherry note are almost nonexistent. In the forum there are better ideas about how to punch this one up - use 'em!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike G. from Needs an extract The cherries are not tasted! The idea is good! The chocolate you can't taste either. Might want to use an extract to bring out cherry!
