    STEP 1: Sanitizing

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    6. Sprinkle the entire yeast packet into the keg and then screw on the lid.Do not stir.

    7. Allow your fermenter to sit for 10-14 days.

    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.

    STEP 3: Bottling & Carbonating

    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. 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 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.

    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 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. 

    Tip from our Brewmasters

    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 Matt_Medved 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Turfsup from A perfect beer I've made a bunch of different recipes and this was easily the best. Smooth and tasty after 2 weeks of conditioning and it got better with age. You won't be disappointed!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Grizwald from Not what I expected. This was my second batch of Mr Beer. First was Diablo IPA which I loved. This was unexpectedly fruity. Friends liked it, it was not for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast Eddie from My new standard brew. When I finished my first bottle, it became my favorite Pilsner. It has a great smooth taste that finishes just between sweet and bitter. My friends love it. My second brew is warn conditioning, and my third is in the fermenter. I will try adding the Saaz hops another reviewer suggested.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Cark from Welcome back This is the first beer I have made in about 7 years. It was a good choice to reintroduce myself to my old friend Mr Beer. I have drank a few and I am letting the others condition further. Would recommend to others. Trying to not drink the rest before my next batch finishes carbonating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by KLR 68 from Good even better with upgrades A solid pilsner out of the gate. The addition of flavor and aroma hops takes it the next level. I always use Seflager 34/70 or S23 yeasts when brewing lagers. Mr Beer should offer lager yeasts with their lager refills.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave46Beer 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 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Deluxe kit has no carbonation drops! What gives? The beer was fine, nothing special, but for a deluxe refill kit, they did not include carbonation drops. Even the basic refill includes carbonation drops, so I am not sur why they skimp on the deluxe kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by jzimm328 from Easy drinker This is an easy drinker of a beer. Decent white head, slight floral notes, and relatively uncomplex flavor. It goes down easy and has a decent dry finish. Highly recommended.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Long fermentation period It's better than the old stuff we tried to make but it takes quite a while to ferment. Longer than 2 weeks for some reason.
