    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,(not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened can and BrewMax LME's in hot tap water.

    2. Open the packet of grains and pour it into 1 muslin sack and tie it closed.

    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 4-quart or larger pot. Bring this mixture to a temperature of 155-165 degrees. Then add in the grain sack to the hot water to steep for 30 minutes between 155-165 degrees. Then remove from heat.

    4. While the grain is steeping, zest the three limes and place the zest into a muslin sack and then into a small jar, and add 2oz of Vodka. Juice the limes and add to the jar with zest and vodka. Set this jar aside to be used later.

    5. After the 30 minutes has passed (step 3) carefully lift the grain sack out of the pot and place into a strainer/colander. Rinse the sack over the pot with 1 cup of hot water. Let drain. Do NOT squeeze the grain sack. Discard grain sack once drained.

    6. Open both packets of BrewMax LME and slowly add this to the hot grain water, stirring until it is completely dissolved.

    7. Bring grain water to a low rolling boil, then remove the pot from the heat.

    8. Roughly crack the Coriander Seeds with a rolling pin or mortar and pestle. Then add the coriander seeds and the 1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt to the pot.

    9. Open the can of Brewing Extract and BrewMax LME's and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    10. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    11.  Pour the wort into your fermenter, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

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

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

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 78° F (20°-25° C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

    STEP 3: Adding Extras 

    Adding extras is the process of adding additional ingredients to a beer which will impart more flavor and aroma in your finished brew.

    1. At day 3 of fermentation add about 1/3 of the mixture in the jar that contains the lime juice and vodka mixture. Carefully remove the lid from your fermenter and dump the mixture in. Quickly close the lid.
    2. At day 7 of fermentation add about 1/2 of the remaining mixture in the jar that contains the lime juice and vodka mixture. Carefully remove the lid from your fermenter and add the mixture in. Quickly close the lid.
    3. At day 12 of fermentation add the remaining mixture in the jar that contains the lime juice and vodka mixture. At the same time also add 1 bottle of Lactic Acid. Carefully remove the lid from your fermenter and the mixture in. Quickly close the lid.


    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 More Beer Please from Anxiously awaiting for Christmas Cannot comment yet on the beers as they are Christmas gifts however I can comment on packaging. I ordered three recipe kits and I thought that each would be individually boxed. However each item for each recipe was put in one box. To make it easier for the recipients I divided them into the three recipes and then boxed them each. I thought that the recipes would've been included but I had to print them. Not at all big deals on any of this, just a little frustrating. Can't wait to try them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by adutchman from Excellent sour beer I love sour beers. I never realized that a Gose is a traditional German-style unfiltered sour wheat beer until recently. I always make a small (2.5 gallon) batch when trying a recipe for the first time. This one was very easy to make and turned out so well that it didn't last but a weekend. In fact, I liked it so well, that I ordered two kits and used a couple of boosters to make a 5-gallon batch. This batch is going on vacation with me to Florida next month. The beer is very light colored, has nice body and mouthfeel. It was naturally carbonated with priming sugar during secondary. It pours with a decent head and the lacing lasts almost to the bottom of the glass. I love the flavors that are brought out with the coriander seeds, salt, and lime. This combination gives me the feeling that I am somewhere tropical, like on the beach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim71 from A pleasant, smooth flavored beer. This recipe requires aliilttle bit more preparations but so worth it. The lime flavors come out very nice and is a bit tart just as you would expect. Great beer for quenching a thirst.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by DoubleH32 from Great Summer Beer Great Recipe. I had to piecemeal the ingredients for this so I ended up using 2-row and wheat flakes for the partial mash instead of the carapils. This a great beer for poolside or grilling during the summer months. It was not overly sour but the hint of lime was just perfect. A top MRB recipe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Shrike from A Great Example of the Style Tart, sour, and refreshing, just like a Gose should be. The amount of salt is just right; some commercial versions come across as too salty. The lime gives it a nice depth. I really enjoy this recipe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sdhorner from Seawench Gose Fun beer to brew, more steps that most. I can really taste the lime, salt and a little sour. This could become one of my favorites. Not too much head on it and a great aroma. Gotta keep track of this one on a calendar to make sure you don’t miss any steps. I usually cold crash, but no need on this one. VERY good.

    Does day three of fermentation mean three days after brewing since I’m going to brew this Thursday so the third day of fermentation would be either Saturday or Sunday 

    Asked by: Boba5
    If you brew with 12 or more hours left in a day, it is typically safe to count that as day "1". Cheers!

    This kit includes a packet of US-05 yeast.. The instructions do state adding 3 packets of the Dry Brewing yeast. Can any clarify which yeast and when to add the yeast? Thanks

    Asked by: AC2446
    You will add the packet of US-05 Yeast. You do that in the last step of the brewing instructions.
