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,(not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened can and BrewMax LME in hot tap water.

2. Place one packet of 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. Bring this mixture to a boil, add in your hop sack, then remove from heat.

4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and BrewMax LME and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

5. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

6. Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

7. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

8. Sprinkle the US-05 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.

Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 78° F (20°-25° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

STEP 3: Dry-Hopping

Dry hopping is the process of adding hops to a beer which will impart more hop flavor and aroma in your beer.

1. At day 7 of fermentation add the second packet of hops into your fermenter. Carefully remove the lid from your fermenter and dump the pellet hops in. Quickly close the lid.

STEP 4: Bottling & Carbonating

After 14 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 3 more days (17 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 MightyKTC from Best Mr. Beer Recipe Yet! I've been using Mr. Beer for homebrewing for almost two years and have brewed about 25 recipes. Thus far, this may very well be my favorite one -- pretty good for its reasonable price! This is a deliciously dry, hoppy, slightly bitter beer. The aroma is hoppy & the color is very dark red. Foamy head of about two inches and a solid trace of lacing is left along the glass as you finish. Followed the recommended 3 weeks fermenting, 4 weeks conditioning, 3 days chilled and the first bottle I cracked open was delicious (picture attached). Every week after, it's only gotten better and better. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe Sama from Flavorful Purchased this recipe two months ago and started brewing it right away. Fermented for three weeks and carbonated for another three. Refrigerated for another week. Just cracked on open and boom! Very nice hop flavor explosion. The falconers hops were very complimenting with the Imperial red ale and retained a nice head. I actually can't wait till my next social gathering to impress everyone with a beer that I made. MR.BEER really does make it easy.. And fun too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cobi from Millennium Falconers Followed recipe. Cracked one open at 6 weeks and it was great. More like an IPA to me, the Falconers really come through.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KM41 from Great with strong hoppy flavor This is my 3rd beer to make, and I really enjoy the dark amber color. I only spent two weeks in fermenter and tried one after two weeks in the bottle. It has a very strong hop flavor to it right now, more than I like, but still a very good flavor. Will definitely brew again, but experiment with less hops.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wingsontheroad from This is an ipa Tried this to try and expand my brewing knowledge. I fermented for three weeks and I believe I added the second round of hips a week early. If I were to do it again o would add the hops at the end of the second week and only dry hop for one week. Very strong hop taste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brewmaster from Worst beer I've ever brewed I've been brewing with Mr Beer for over two years and I have never brewed a bad beer, that is until I brewed this one. I have never tasted beer this awful before. I dumped an entire case. I have brewed standard brews, recipes, and even created my own, all delicious and I have brewed them multiple times. However, I am extremely disappointed in this one. Terrible!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by irvscott67 from Awesome Brew! I have been brewing Mr. Beer products for over almost fifteen years now and I have to say that this was one of the best batches I have ever done. It's already gone!! Looking forward to tasting the new Sir Kenneth Blond Ale next which is in the brewing stage right now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Delfino1604 from First beer adding hops It went over smoothly. I fermented for 3 weeks. Bottled for 2 weeks. The beer came out carbonated and smooth. It's bitter but has a nice aroma to it. The color is off and it had a odd smell to it.
