These simple instructions will familiarize you with the basic brewing procedures of the Mr. Beer Home Brewing System using this refill. This refill will produce 8 liters of premium quality beer with approximately 4.7% alcohol by volume (ABV).


STEP 1: SANITIZING



Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions 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 hopped malt 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 and LME packet in hot tap water.
  2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, and then remove from heat. Open the can of brewing extract and LME packet and pour it into the hot water. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
  3. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 (4-quart) mark on the back.
  4. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 (8.5-quart) mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
  5. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
  6. 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.
  7. 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



Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting our help desk).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wake up in the morning and brew excellence! Honestly, I experienced some anxiety with my first home brewing endeavor. Meticulously, I cleaned and sanitized my work area and implements, followed the simple instructions and Voila! Results were pure perfection. Could not be more pleased... unless 14 days could go by more quickly. Definitely glad I utilized the Booster. This GBCP is smooth and delicious. I could add superfluous adjectives but you wouldn’t care. Great brew. Great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a hit! This is my fifth time brewing this recipe, and always pleased with the outcome. I add a half ounce of Saaz hops, and let it steep in the wort for 10 minutes as it cools. A delicious pilsner, always a hit! HIGHLY recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's just a good tasting beer... This was my first recipe that came with my kit and I will say patience is the key. My first taste sample was okay. So I waited a few days later and tried again. A lot better. I even had a few sample bottles given to friends and they are asking for more... so back to the brew basement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Made this for my son and to commemorate time spent in in Czech. We are enjoying every bottle. The longer it conditions the better it is tasting! Smooth taste, nice color with the right amount of head - excellent beer for an "amateur".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my Favorites I have 4 kegs going, I like to rotate the flavors of beer as well. This is one I always order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful brew I did dabble a bit, using some saaz hops and a bit of booster to bring it closer to the pilsners I had while in Prague. Great smooth taste due to the base for this refill. My wife is making sure I have this on hand as needed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and very tasty. Maybe I should have said "Very tasty and smooth." This pilsner is very good from the first sip to the last gulp, but stays very smooth the entire glass. It will be a great summer beer, if it lasts until then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Ahhh-Mazing! Bought this recipe kit in hopes to find a different style of pilsner to kick up my taste buds, and this did the trick! Full of flavor and aroma, Grand Bohemian Czech Pulsner will definitely be bought again.
