PROFILE:

We've gone a step beyond... Belgian beers are famous for their legs, and this one is no slouch. Once that thick head subsides into luscious rock and roll creaminess, you'll see her strutting her stuff along the upper reaches of your glass. Meanwhile, you'll be enchanted by the generous pale malt forward flavor with a subtle hop floral background and just a dash of peppery finish for extra personality. Give this girl a tulip and a runway, for she's surely worth taking on.

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, it's not needed for this recipe, then place the unopened can and LME softpacks 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, then remove from heat
    3. Open the Brewing Extract and the LMEs, pour the contents into the hot mixture. 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 ONLY the Safbrew T-58 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 59° and 68° F (15°-20° 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 from My wife's new favorite! This was my very first attempt at brewing, after finding the unopened kit at a garage sale for only $3. Yes. THREE bucks. So, after reviewing the website and knowing I' partial to Belgian Tripel's, I followed the advice of many to, "go simple the first few times." I purchased the Leggy Blond Belgian and followed the directions. This beer turned out perfectly! Slightly fruity, with a creamy foam and light taste. My wife told me that she was worried my first attempt would be a disaster. Thanks, honey. To her surprise, she says it is now her new favorite beer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beer Wow! I highly recommend Leggy Blond beer for anyone who likes clean crisp flavors in beer. This takes awhile to brew, 21/21/30 days but it's well worth the wait. It was a little scary fermenting because it seemed overly rich and even during bottleing the beer didn't appear to totally blended. I guess the long conditioning phase fixed that because what came out of the bottles was a beautiful clear, semi dark beer, with a smooth rich taste. This batch won't last until I can make another one! :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this beer! This is the 5th Mr. Beer Recipe I've brewed and by far the best. I always take bottles of my most recent brews to my son in Massachusets, and he agrees, best one so far. Rich malty flavor with staying power. Take a mouthful and sit back and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best One of the best Mr Beer recipies ive made; easily. I didnt use the ale yeast that came with the recipie because the smack pack was dead and did not swell; however I use the one under the lid of the pilsner and it turned out fantastic. Mouth feel is medium body, head retention isnt the best, nor is lacing, but to be honest I wouldnt change a thing! If you looking for a good session beer with a nice flavorful profile, this is it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Something did not go right on this one I followed another review and added a pack of booster to this one. I happened to have an extra lying around. I don't know if it was the booster or if something got in the brew keg, but this had a really nasty after taste. I did have some college kids who liked it (but they are used to cheap beer). I would try again but use honey instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful finish to the Brew M y first Belgian. I could not be happier and I am only 5 weeks since bottling. Crisp with a nice head. Finish was smooth and I am without words. Yes, it takes a bit more time as a partial but instructions, when followed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leggi blonde ale Not done yet. Right now it is slightly better than average. Still "aging"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great head I think it tastes great but be careful when pouring. If you pour it too fast in a cold glass you'll have either wait a while to drink it or drink through the head.
