    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 packets from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract (not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened can in hot tap water.

    2. Place the contents of the packet of Nugget into a hop sack and tie closed so that the hops have enough room to expand, trim away the excess. Set aside.

    3. Add the Carapils and Chocolate malt to one of the muslin sacks and tie it closed so that the grain may flow freely within the bag. Trim away the excess.

    4. Add 2 quarts of water to your pot. Bring the temperature of this water up to 155-160 degrees. Add your sack of grains to this water and hold the temperature between 150-160, for 30 minutes.

    5. Once 30 minutes have passed, remove the grain bag from your pot and rinse the grain bag with one cup of hot water, allowing the run-off to drain into the pot, do not squeeze the bag. Discard grains. Remove the Pot from heat.

    6. Slowly sprinkle in the packets DME into the pot of grain water and stir to dissolve. Increase your heat to medium-high. Continue stirring constantly to keep the rising foam in check. If it begins to rise, pull the pan off the heat and lower the temperature slightly, continuing to stir (about 5 to 20 minutes depending on your particular conditions), until you hit the hot break which is where the foam has subsided and the solution is now boiling. (Do not worry if you cannot work all the clumps out of your DME, the yeast will break it down in fermentation). 

    7. Once the mixture is safely boiling, sdd the Nugget hops and boil for 10-minutes. You will leave the hop sack in the batch all the way through fermentation.

    8. Once 10 minutes have passed (step 7) remove the pot from heat. Then add in the Canadian Blonde extract and mix till dissolved. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    9. 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.

    10.  Transfer the hop sack to the fermenter with a sanitized spoon or tongs, then 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).

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

    12.  Sprinkle the Nottingham yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 78° F (20°-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 5 out of 5 by MikeP from Unique Flavor This is very good. Very malty and the chocolate malt really comes through. The flavor is very distinctive. This is a great brew. 20 days in the LBK, 15 days in the bottle and 2 days in the refrigerator. I'll be making this again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Noah0504 from Delicious! This is everything I hoped it would be, and I will definitely be making this one again. This recipe should be easy enough for anyone, just make sure you're water isn't too hot when adding the DME, or you'll have a hard time getting it out of the package. I fermented this for 14 days and cold crashed before bottling. I found it was drinkable after 4 weeks of bottle conditioning, but the chocolate malt was a little too pronounced for me. An extra week really helped balance everything out, so I recommend 5-6 weeks of bottle conditioning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by DDDUKE from My new favorite When I saw NUT in the name, I was thinking this might be like Rogues' Hazelnut Brown Nectar. Probably because I had recently discovered it. It's not, but it is really good! This is now my favorite Mr Beer refill ,and I've had a few. I just opened a bottle (a week early) and I'm hooked.
