    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 place the
    unopened can in hot tap water.

    2. Place 1 packet of the Cascade pellet hops into a hop sack tying them closed, then trim away
    excess material.

    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then open
    the 2 packets of BrewMax Booster and pour into the cool water and stir to dissolve. Increase
    your heat to medium-high. Continue stirring constantly to keep the sugar from scorching. 

    4. Once the solution is safely boiling add in your hopsack, allow this mixture to boil for 10
    minutes stirring occasionally, then remove from heat.

    5. While waiting for the boil to finish from step 4 place 1 more packet of Cascade pellet hops
    into a hop sack tying them closed, then trim away excess material. 

    6. Once the 10 minutes have passed add the second hopsack with the packet of Cascade Hops.
    Then remove the pot from heat. 

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

    8. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back and add 2 Beano tablets. If
    using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    9. Pour the wort, including the hop sacks, into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the
    fermenter to the mark 2 by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sacks in the wort for the
    duration of fermentation. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-
    liter mark). 

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

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

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 70° and 76° F (21°-
    24° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.


    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 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 solutions 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 sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    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 4 out of 5 by Mt50 from Another great light IPA I’ve found I like this one young and aged a little bit. After 2 1/2 weeks I really liked it. Very light and crisp and the hoppy flavor was predominant. Texture like champagne. But this is one of the few IPAs that I like better with a little age. At 5 weeks, still the same crisp hoppy flavor but more pronounced IPA-type bitterness. Still had that champagne texture but much more balanced and tastes less like a light beer and more like a good IPA. Like a session IPA.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Nice lighter IPA This is a lighter IPA when it comes to IBU level but has a good flavor with enough bitterness to suit. I found it to be a smooth beer that I enjoy with different food dishes or just to enjoy on its own. It’s a great price and easy to brew so I’ll be brewing this one again. Plus I made a fun label for the bottles too so this one is in my library.
