    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 the can of brewing extract from the bottom of the can 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 1 out of 5 by Ray M from Disagree with every reveiw here I consider myself an IPA snob, I drink IPA 90% of the time and this tastes nothing like an IPA to me. Tastes more like a brown ale and is a dark amber color like everyone else's pictures here. Not like a honey color like pictured on the website. Does have a bitter finish that lingers like you need somthing to wash it away. I will be drinking this with food for this reason. Yes I followed the directions, yes everything was clean...there are no off putting flavors. It's just not an (IPA) I would buy/make again...now I got to get through 2 gallons of this.....I hope the slipper socks refill is better or I'll just buy what I like off the shelf without the wait.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by joegonzo999 from An IPA that surprised me I am not typically an IPA fan, there are very few that I will drink. I was hesitant about brewing my own. Due to some good things I heard online, I took the plunge and went for the Long Play refill. I am glad I did! This is a GREAT beer for those who might want to try an IPA but dont like the strong bitterness that many have. This is a mild, enjoyable IPA with enough hoppy bitterness to get the flavor but not enough to be overpowering or leave an aftertaste. I will absolutely be brewing this one again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Najatski Sr from Great IPA So, I just recently purchased the Long Play IPA refill, and let me tell you. This refill came with everything you need to create an awesome tasting IPA. For my second batch, I’ll be adding a little more Hops from Mr.Beer’s site, as I consider myself a Hop Head. Mr. Beer’s prices are great, and you get free shipping on orders over $75. Their kits also include the Booster, and Carbonation Drops, where as other sites do not. Also, they truly stand behind their product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeP from A beginners IPA If you are new to either drinking or brewing an IPA, this is for you. I made it "as is", meaning no additional ingredients. Fermented 15 days, in the bottle 15 days, then 2 days chill. A wonderful mild IPA.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by JoeV from Dark & Delicious, but an IPA? Long Play IPA was my first venture into solo homebrewing. I have full grain brewed with my Dad several times. As I live in an apartment, 2 gal extract brewing has been a way I can skip the more space involved needs of mashing and sparging and start homebrewing myself. The Long Play IPA was simple enough to "brew". Sanitizing everything took longer than actually brewing it. 6 weeks later (3 week fermentation plus 3 week conditioning) I tried the beer. It's got a dark malty completion compared to the website photo, even held up to light, its a dark amber color. Long Play has a mild hoppy front taste, that settles to a malty mouthfeel, and finishes with the bitter dryness. It won't taste like a super hop boiled, whirpooled hopped, and dry hopped beer, because it isn't. What Long Play is is a smooth, slightly hopped sipping IPA. It's a nice starter beer, although I for one am immediately moving on to partial mash recipes. OG = 1.046 FG = 1.013 ABV = 4.5% Note for Mr. Beer - your ABV calculation for this beer is off. Website says target OG is 1.048 and target FG is 1.012, but thats an ABV of 4.7% ((1.048-1.012)*131.25) yet website also says target ABV is 5.5%. This is misleading towards many first time brewers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by dlh015 from Wait for it!! Another great brew...and great advice to boot! Make sure you read the brewer's tips... I used to brew the old fashioned way (lol)...5 gallon fermenters, scads of equipment, etc,etc. The a friend recommended Mr. Beer. I had to try this IPA. Sooo, I brew it (so easy), ferment...bottle it (again so easy) and wait. After two weeks, I put a bottle in the fridge for a couple days as recommended. It was okay...not great, but okay. However, I remembered that the weather around here had turned a bit chillier than usual...and from previous brewing experience (as well as a reminder in the brewer's tips ;) ), I let the batch sit in the bottles for another week. Then I cooled another one and tried it the next day: Nirvana!! So, wait for it and it will come!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Calbb from Not Good This was my second attempt at a Mr. Beer kit. The first beer was not good. I assumed this IPA would be better but it wasn't. It tasted like carbonated molasses with a hint of hops. I put down three of these but couldn't keep drinking them. There was no hint of alcohol and the taste made it not worth drinking. I followed the directions to a T but it still turned out undrinkable. Either I'm doing something wrong or the ingredients are bad. I am done with Mr. Beer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Karson from Shockingly Amazing! I'm a novice, as in, this was my first batch of beer. Ever. I was blown away by the taste. I'm not going to lie, I'm an IPA snob but was just so impressed by the flavors. Thanks to you, Mr. Beer team, for making this so easy and delicious!

    Why do the starter kits say beer ready in 30 minutes but the refills all say 10-14 days? Shouldn’t the process take the same time or am I missing something? 

    Asked by: Cleav
    Hello, 30 minutes is the time it takes to simply mix the wort and get it in the fermentation barrel. All beer takes about 2 weeks to ferment before it is ready to bottle.

    I may not be able to follow the recommend conditioning time after bottling. What is the longest time you can leave the bottles out before having to refrigerate?

    Asked by: Ray M
    Conditioning is done at room temperature over a period of two to four weeks. I always condition for 28 to 30 days, and put a few in my icebox several days before I expect to drink one or two. Conditioned beer does not have to be refrigerated following the several weeks of conditioning; just refrigerate for several days before you plan to crack the first one.

    I have 2 of these refills and I also have the ability to do 5 gallon batches. Can I combine the 2 and make a 4 gallon? Do I have to make any adjustments? I also have 2 Brewmax booster packs available if needed.

    Asked by: HoppyGoLoopy
    You can double this can for a double batch. You should not need to make adjustments and no Booster will be needed. We do suggest that you use both packets of yeast. Cheers!

    . I'm brewing "Long Play IPA" : I'm using 12 oz. glass bottles for my bottling process, so how do I configure using the carbonation drops to my bottling application?

    Asked by: JT62
    We recommend using 3/4 of a drop per 12oz bottle. A pill cutter works best for cutting them.

    I plan on making this in couple of weeks. What would be the best way to boost it to say 6.5% or 7.5% ABV? Would extra yeast be necessary? Thanks in advance.
