Well…. Sometimes we get a little crazy and that is what we did here. We heard these odd rumors about brewing beer with soda instead of water. YES, soda, sounds crazy right? We thought so too but we just had to see for ourselves. The result of this crazy concoction was absolutely magical! The beer is smooth and easy-drinking, but you get this kind of tart flavor from the soda. It’s hard to describe but it's incredibly refreshing and super crushable. If you're looking for something out of the box to brew, this is it! It will surprise you and anyone you share it with.

    <hr> <h3><strong>STEP 1: Sanitizing</strong></h3> <p>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. <strong>Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:</strong></p> <p>1. Fill clean fermenter with 8 liters (2 Gallons) of warm water, then add 1 pack of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved.</p> <p>2. Use your measuring cup to scoop the liquid up and run it down the side of the Coopers Fermenter. Do this around the entire fermenter a few times. Then add your krousen kollar and repeat. Then take some of the solution and pour it into the lid and allow it to sit for 2 minutes. (If you have a different fermenter sanitizing may be different.)&nbsp;</p> <p>3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow the liquid to flow for 5 seconds, and then close.</p> <p>4. Pour some of the solution from the fermenter into a large bowl. You need enough to fully cover your brewing utensils. 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 the cleaning solution prior to use. Any remaining solution in your fermenter can be discarded.</p> <p>5. After all, surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to the top of the fermenter, proceed immediately to brewing.</p> <hr> <h3><strong>STEP 2: BREWING</strong></h3> <p>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.</p> <p>1. <span class="TextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" lang="EN-US" xml:lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.</span> </span><span class="TextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" lang="EN-US" xml:lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">*Since this recipe uses a different packet of yeast</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)"> for fermentation</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW78762035" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">, you can keep this one in your fridge or freezer in case you need one </span><span class="NormalTextRun ContextualSpellingAndGrammarErrorV2Themed BCX0 SCXW78762035" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">later.*</span></span></p> <p>2. <span class="TextRun Underlined SCXW109917082 BCX0" lang="EN-US" xml:lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW109917082 BCX0" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">Pour the </span><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW109917082 BCX0" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">four</span> </span><span class="TextRun Underlined SCXW109917082 BCX0" lang="EN-US" xml:lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW109917082 BCX0" data-ccp-charstyle="Strong">COLD</span></span><span class="TextRun Underlined SCXW109917082 BCX0" lang="EN-US" xml:lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto"><span class="NormalTextRun SCXW109917082 BCX0" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)"> 2-Liter bottles of Mountain Dew into your sanitized fermenter then put the lid on your fermenter.</span></span></p> <p>3. <span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">Using a measuring cup, pour </span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">1-gallon</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)"> of water into your clean </span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">2</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">-</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">gallon</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)"> or larger pot</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">, and b</span><span class="NormalTextRun BCX0 SCXW88694038" data-ccp-parastyle="Normal (Web)">ring this to a boil.

At day 11 of Fermentation, you will add the remaining packet of Northern Brewer Hops. Careful remove the lid from your fermenter and dump the pellet hops in. Quickly close the lid.</span></p> <hr> <h3><strong>STEP 4: Bottling &amp; Carbonating </strong></h3> <p>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. <em>Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.</em></p> <p>1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill 3 1-gallon containers with warm water, then split the remaining pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser between them and mix until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>3. Add 2 <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="https://www.mrbeer.com/mrbeer-carbonation-drops" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Carbonation Drops</a></span> 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 <a href="https://www.mrbeer.com/mrbeer-carbonation-drops" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">this table as a guide</span></a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <div><hr></div> <h3><strong>Tip from our Brewmasters</strong></h3> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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.</p>
