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 the 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 the 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 the top of the keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


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, 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 the 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 a 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 used 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 sitting 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 MoodyLane from Be warned, you will be hooked! Trust me the LBK is a gateway to larger brews. You will either be completely contempt with brewing the extract kits(which are good!) or you will want to go full blown all grain after getting bit by the brew bug, like I have. I've brewed a few times now. The first was the classic light. It was pretty good if you can stand to leave it bottled long enough to taste good! I then moved to a deluxe American Ale kit with DME and it was great! I've now graduated to the big boys but my LBK is still with me every step! It is great for testing out my latest creations by brewing smaller batches before going full tilt. My first Mr Beer kit will always have a use in my brew room. It taught me a hobby I didn't even know existed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mkw122680 from Such a great project! I bought this for my husband a couple of years ago for a Christmas gift. He loves it. Brews beer often in it and loves experimenting with different recipes. He still raves it is his favorite gift ever. He's even going to brew hard cider for me (although through his home brewing I am liking more of his creations and craft beer in general!). This kit was easy for him to do and he really enjoys it. Our neighbor got one same year and they routinely try to one up each other in beer creations. We all love sampling! We love Mr. Beer products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sesmith61 from Great tools for the true novice! I was slightly apprehensive about getting this for two reasons. The first is I live in a condo and so have limited space and second is that I would not all of the information I need to handle issues such as keeping the beer at the appropriate temperature while fermenting. But the small size of the kit makes it convenient and the instructional video combined with the online blogs gave me all the information I needed to control the temperature. I also really like the variety of other beers I can order. The only 'suggestion' I would have is that the instructions for this kit don't talk about the carbonation drops. I had to go to the online videos of one of the other kits to find that information.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jprobus2 from Expired Can When I went to sample before bottling tasted HORRENDOUS! I didn't notice anything wrong when I opened the can smell wise. But luckily I kept the can cause of the instructions on the side and it is 3 months expired. I kicked myself in the teeth cause I blame myself for not catching that before brewing. I do not have anything negative to say about mr beer on it I should've spotted it to and asked for a replacement can just frustrated I wasted all that time. But lesson from this to y'all is check the dates on your cans I wish I did so I could've gotten a replacement one! Still love mr beer again I'm not angry at them probably could've been fixed before I opened it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lerch from Best gift ever! I received the lbk kit for Christmas and immediately started the brew, It was quick and easy. Today I bottled the batch and sampled a shot, tastes just like flat beer as it should. Can't wait to try the final result. Will definitely be ordering the six gallon kit soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCEE from Mr. Beer...Mr. Awesome! This rocks! I have a science degree and a taste for beer! This was like a science experiment, that I get to drink! I have several friends who professionally brew. They all suggested Mr. Beer! So I jumped right on it. The process has been very easy and a lot of fun....best of all the beer taste great! I am going to buy another kit, so I can always have a nice beer to enjoy after work. If you are into brewing beer or just curious, give Mr. Beer a try! I do have to warn you...all of your friends are going to want to hang out at your place! Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Johnny from Rookie Mistake I was gifted a deluxe kit which included this extract. I carefully read through the instructions that were included, and it led me to believe that my kit was missing the Booster Packet. I ventured to my local home brew store, who tossed me a bag of brown sugar, and an additional packet of yeast, $5 later I was on my way. I followed the instructions, but now I realize that this recipe did not require the booster. Long story short: I crafted a very high ABV brew that sneaks right up on you. Requires longer fermentation to convert the extra sugars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jwalk74 from The kit worked great though my beer was gross I've had mine a couple years and I'm adding a review in the attempt to win a gift card (they said be honest). Both my batches weren't very good, but it was operator error both times. The 1st batch was over-carbonated (too much sugar) and the second was a foaming gross-tasting mess (improper sterilization). The kit worked great though. My only issue was that the drinkable (but burpy) 1st batch had a bit of a plastic-y aftertaste. That could be from the kit and plastic bottles or that's just how it tasted. I'm about to try another batch using glass growlers. Maybe that will eliminate the plastic taste. We'll see...
