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 packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, it's not needed for this recipe, then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then SLOWLY sprinkle in the pouches of Booster™ and stir until dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat.
    3. Open the Brewing Extract and the LME, and pour the contents into the hot water. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    4. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
    5. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
    6. Sprinkle ONLY the Safale S-04 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
    7. 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.
    8. 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.)

Shameless Stout is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a stout recipe with body I have tried multiple stout recipes, but most only had the color and semblance of the flavor of a stout, often failing to produce a lasting head. This recipe redeems my faith in my ability to produce a rewarding stout. The only difference in the recipe was instead of using a bag of booster, I added a bag of smooth dry malt extract. Great flavor, but more surprisingly, great mouth feel and head retention. I will be brewing this again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shameless is a tasty stout. I brewed this with the addition of 4 oz. Carapils plus 2 oz. of Chocolate Malt that I had left over from a previous recipe. I really enjoy this beer. It has a bit more richness and character than Staggerback Stout. It's very smooth, with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste that quickly resolves into flavors of coffee and subtle chocolate. If you like stouts you won't be disappointed with Shameless. I'll be brewing it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did I just become a Stout lover? I don't typically like stouts. As in, I never order them. So glad I went on a whim and ordered this flavor! I absolutely loved it! Not only will I be ordering it again, but I'll be surprising my dad for father's day with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Improvement (But not favorite style.) This recipe nicely enhances the original St. Patrick's refill, resulting in much more rich flavors. Stouts generally, though, are not among my favorite styles, so even as it's improved, this recipe didn't knock me over. I can recommend it to you stout lovers out there. (Unlikely to mix it again myself, however.)
