STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting 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 the Brewing Extract, then place the unopened cans and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Place the mulling spices 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 the hop sack, then remove from heat.
    4. Open the cans of Brewing Extract and the LME softpack, 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 into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Add in pumpkin purée. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    7. Sprinkle ONLY the Safbrew T-58 yeast into keg, then screw on 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 by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wife's favorite so far I was real nervous about this one becase the krauzen was very minimal but it fermented well. Has a nice orange hue and perfect fall flavor. Ready for Halloween!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I added Persimon This came out very well when I added persimmon to the recipe. I will use a hop sack next time to keep the spigot from plugging when I bottle the beer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better aroma than taste Pours a hazy golden with white head. Amazing aroma of mulling spices, but the taste is a so-so pumpkin spice. I like the pumpkin rising a lot better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add a shot of whipped cream This beer was great but what really made it good was the shot of whipped cream we put on top! It really taste like pumpkin pie then.
