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. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
      2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then SLOWLY sprinkle in the pouches of Booster™ and stir until dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat
      3. Open the Brewing Extract and the LME, and pour the contents into the hot water. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
      4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
      5. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
      6. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
      7. 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.
      8. 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 to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by dcbb from Delicious but needed a bit of extra time This is the beer that made it clear to me I wanted to keep using this kit: My first batch was old when I got around to using it and definitely a very simple flavor/recipe that, as a novice, I may not have put together right. This combo, though, had a great richness to it, a round kind of flavor, and a nice ABV that made it fun to drink. I found I went through it very fast, unlike other beers I've kept, just having a beer here or there or pairing it with food. The one problem: I thought it didn't meld flavor-wise until it had been in the bottle three or four weeks. It needed a little more time than was recommended to me, I thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slym2none from A very tasty brew! This was my very first beer I ever made, and it came out really nice! You don't notice that it's high-gravity while drinking, so it can be a little "dangerous" but it was very tasty. I would often check on the beer just to get a whiff of the dry-hops after adding them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeithTexas from Outstanding Red! I brewed this recipe exactly following the instructions. This recipe produced a full of flavor beer. Very red. Interesting spices. Just the right hoppiness. My ABV calculated out at only 5.8% but it might be higher. I brewed this for 20 days and conditioned for at least 1 month before beginning to try it. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary6R from Full Drinking Experience This was my fourth batch of home-brewing, so now I can possibly claim to be an intermediate beginner. (But a long-experience beer drinker.) And I’m learning some of This was my fourth batch of home-brewing, so now I can possibly claim to be an intermediate beginner. (But a long-experience beer drinker.) And I’m learning some of the vital keys to success: Sanitize thoroughly … temperature control … and patience, patience, PATIENCE. It was my first try at an enhanced brew recipe with a LONG suggested conditioning time; the instructions indicated 3 months for the total creation. I originally planned on 12 weeks total: 3 in the fermenter + 9 in the bottles (including 3-5 days in the refrigerator before opening). I can definitely say the flavor was noticeably even better the second pair of bottles after another week (10 weeks conditioning) and even richer with a further additional week. It was fortunate that the warm weather arrived so I was distracted by outdoor activities and not so much by the LONG wait for this interesting-sounding homebrew. If I do this one again in the fall or winter I may have to hide the conditioning bottles away out of sight somewhere so not to be thinking about when they’re (finally) truly going to be ready. Upon pouring, starts with a good foam head, very nice amber color, and rich initial aroma. Rich, balanced flavor, too. Perhaps a bit on the “malty” side (not necessarily my best favorite) but very nice. And adding some more weeks in the bottle seemed to improve the drinking experience even further. Definitely a noticeable enhanced-ABV-% punch – as designed and as desired. Possibly adds a slight chemical aftertaste but that was okay with me. Allow me to suggest you don’t want to slug this one down … but linger over it, savor it. If my own personal overall grade is dropped a bit to A- it’s probably because this variety needs so much waiting to get right. I will definitely brew this one again. Brew on, friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Huds85 from My second brew - it's good This one was my second brew with my 2G kit. Tried my first one yesterday after 5 weeks conditioning - overall, it's pretty good. Maybe it's just me but I taste a slight "sour" flavor, but the wife tried it and told me I was hallucinating - it's good. I guess I'm too critical, but will see how it is after 6 weeks (and beyond). So far though, I'm satisfied with my first two brews...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darkroom brewer from A little more hoppy with a great head and kick. Was not expecting it to be hoppy but it was a pleasant surprise. The color was a tad darker than the photo but definitely can't wait to try adding some fruit to help with fermenting the next time around! I think I need to get a rack of LBK's going all the time.
