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 packets from under the lids of the Brewing Extract, then place the unopened cans in hot tap water.
    2. Place contents of both packets of the pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then Bring water to a boil, add in hop sack, then remove from heat
    4. Open the Brewing Extract and pour the 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, including the hop sack, into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sack in the wort for the duration of fermentation. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk. 
    7. Sprinkle both yeast packets 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

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 5 out of 5 by Tommy from Great stout This was a good reciept to start getting a little more advanced by using extra ingredients. It was still just as simple to make. I was surprised by the amount of foam that happened while brewing the wart. And it prompted me to buy a larger pot with a pour spout that has since made it much easier to pour into the keg. The taste was Better than previous brews that seemed more watered down. And the higher alcohol content was better than my previous brews. This reciept was the first one that I made that I would be proud to serve my family and friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pumpkinbeer90 from Best MrBeer I brewed! This was the last MrBeer product I brewed (I have since moved on to partial extract-all grain) the best stout for your money, and the only one I would consider brewing again. This beer was think, malty, and bitter, everything I want in a good stout, and although I never took a gravity reading, I could taste the alcohol content. With all home brews, MrBeer is best aged over a few months, but most of us drink it long before then. I still have one aging in the fridge since 2012. Happy Brewing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by tboner from Pretty disappointing The beer and hop aroma came out very bland. I was very disappointed. The instructions didn't say how long to boil with the hops, or if to boil. Didn't say how long to let it simmer with the hops, nothing. This resulted in a very awful tasting beer. I would not recommend it. Go pick up 4 6 packs of the best IPA in town for this price. You'd be much more satisfied with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pico from Tasty IPA Great tasting IPA, if you're a hipster who thinks an IPA is nothing more than a mouthful of hops, this beer isn't for you. I found after 16 weeks of conditioning at 55F you have a great IPA. I'm going to brew this again, but using one ounce of Cascade hops and a tablespoon of citrus mulling spices. Easy to follow instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichaelL from Truly a Great Beer The best MrBeer product I've yet tried. Rich, thick, roasty, and black as used motor oil. Worth every penny.
