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, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot.
    3. Bring mixture to a boil, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, pour contents into the hot mixture. 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 the 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 65° and 75° F (18.3°-23.8° 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. 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.
    8. At the 1 week mark, in your sanitized blender, purée the fruit with the syrup, open the lid of the fermenter, gently pour in the puréed fruit so the wort is as still as possible. Tighten the lid back on. Do not stir.
    9. 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. You’ll ferment for 21 days total.

    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.)

Shiver Me Timbers Blackberry Porter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique and Enjoyable The great descriptions Mr. Beer writes for their recipes seem to convince me that I just have to try certain brews. This was one of them. As I began the brewing process I thought, "But I don't even like blackberries that much. Why did I get this?" It was well worth it. I'm drinkng the final 1 liter bottle now which has conditioned a full 6 months. It's smooth as silk, and has a gentle chocolatey-blackberry aftertaste that is unique and better than expected. These were good right after the initial recommended conditioning time and just got smoother with age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as fruity as you might think If you are willing to put a little extra time & effort into a beer, this is one that will reward you handsomely. I was expecting a sweet, fruity, dark beer when I decided to experiment with this beer. I was wrong. I got a delicious porter, with a hint of blackberry, that makes an appearance at the tail end of a swallow of this great beer. Without a doubt, this beer will go into my favorites list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicous Porter - My wife even liked it Fermented 3 weeks, Bottled 3 weeks and man what a surprise this beer was for me. Thick Amber head, faint blackberry on the nose, blackberry on the front of the swallow with chocolate and coffee on the backside. Very smooth going down. My wife was plesantly surprised by this one as her turned up nose to the color, lead to a smile and "I could drink that" after tasting it. Really enjoying this brew right now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoooth!! I could not wait! I was beer thirsty! I cracked a growler of it 3 days after bottling! I don't use the carb drops, I only use sugar. I also added 2 bags of glacier hops (from Mr. Beer). And it is delicious! Light head, smooth taste. It rolls on the tongue and saturates your taste buds with chocolate notes, black berry and a hop finish! Can't wait to try it when I'm supposed to! From the photo you can see it's still conditioning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Porter Just starting to enjoy this treat after bottle conditioning for 2 months - likely give it longer yet for remaining bottles but really like the smooth start and classic porter finish. Amazed at activity after adding blackberries at 1 week but no problems. Can see a slight tint to the head color from blackberries - surprised that don’t really taste them -more like licorice and coffee hint but really smooth. Plan to brew this again this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good This delicious brew is good therapy too. It doesn't have to condition for as long as the instructions say. I fermented and conditioned just less than 3 months enjoyed the earliest drinks best. It is now in my private stash and I'm having a difficult time sharing with others. More for me!
