STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download by visitng 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 (not needed for this recipe) from under the lids of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened cans and LME softpacks in hot tap water.
  2. Place the contents of both pellet hops packets into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
  3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, add in hop sack, then remove from heat.
  4. Open the cans of Brewing Extract and the pouches of LME, 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 #1 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 #2 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 ONLY the Safale S-04 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 visitng our help desk.)

Munich Malt Monster is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better With Time The favors profile of this recipe is amazing. When I first tried about 3 months after I brewed it, it was good. It is a really good homebrew. I put about 8 bottles to the side to try later. I was already drinking Oktoberfestivus (which is also great) so I forgot about them. Now almost a year since I brew them, they kicking with favor. Nice balance to it. Try it and age-condition a few.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A BIG Brew Hopefully Worth Waiting For I bought this brew on the recommendation of other Mr. Beer customers and the interesting mix of ingredients. I've brewed several simple beers and wanted to give a more complex recipe a try. The suggested conditioning time is 10-12 months so I won't know the results until next season's College bowl games and NFL playoffs. Can't wait!!!
