    STEP 1: Sanitizing

    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 the 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 the 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 the top of the keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


    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 in hot tap water.

    2. Add 2 packets of Citra hops and 2 packets of Cascade hops into a hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material

    3. Add 1 gallon of water to your large pot. Then mix in the booster and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved bring this mixture to a low boil.

    4. Once you reach a low boil add in the hop sack and let it boil for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes have passed remove the pot from heat.

    5. Open the cans of Brewing Extract and pour the contents into the hot mixture in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.

    6. 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.

    7. 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

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

    9. 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 21 days.


    STEP 3: Dry-Hopping

    Dry hopping is the process of adding hops to a beer which will impart more hop flavor and aroma in your beer.

    1. At day 18 of Fermentation, you will add the remaining Packets of Citra and Cascade hops. Using clean scissors open each packet of hops. Carefully remove the lid from your fermenter and dump the pellet hops in. Quickly close the lid.


    STEP 4: Bottling & Carbonating

    After 21 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 (24 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 solution into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be used 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. 


    Tip from our Brewmasters

    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 5 out of 5 by Jb52483 from Strong bitter beautiful Brewed this one this winter. Bottle conditioning took an extra week bc of the cold Temps. Let me tell you. It wasn't only the best beers I've brewed but one of the best ipas I've ever had. If you can't find that big strong but drinkable and happy ipa, make sure to get this one. Nice dark amber color with a prickly mouthfeel and great aroma

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Easton BrewFan from Suggestion Use a hop sack for the dry hopping. Might want to cold crash too. My batch was so full of solids that I had to filter it but it kept clogging the filter. I only netted nine 22 oz bottles and one 12 oz. It smells amazing and I can't wait to drink it it a few weeks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Y from Space Warrior Double IPA Excellent recipe, highly recommend. Smoothest double IPA that I have tasted to date.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Buckeye Brewer from Too much Trub-ble Very hazy and hoppy. Only complaint is the dry hopping step. Directions should specify to use a hop sack instead of tossing them in loosely. I had a big mess on my hands trying to filter it and i only netted about nine beers when I'd usually net 11-12 bombers.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Mr beer has left me extremely disapointed. The description is misleading and the instructions are incomplete causing my beer to come out terrible. Out of the 9 times I have brewed beer this is the first time it came out bad and the first time I bought from Mr Beer. I am extremely disappointed with everything from Mr Beer. Also I tried to contact mr beer and they take too long with their responses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Will N from Space Warrior is Amazing! Awesome Beer!! Came out a bit darker than I thought but that doesn’t deter the taste at all!! Even came out a bit stronger than the advertised 8.5% which I in no way is a bad thing! Cheers to Mr. Beer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by seacoastman1869 from Love this. I love the 2 gallon fermenter, for a newbie like me it makes it easy to learn about the process of brewing your own beer. I am thinking about buying another one, so i can always have a batch brewing.

    I recently brewed the space warrior double IPA, about ready to bottle. The instructions say to add the carbonation tablets, but they are not included in the list of items received. Do I need them? I don't, but if I do, can I just use sugar? and how much?

    Asked by: curt
    You do not need them. You can just use sugar. It would be 2 teaspoons for you 740ml bottles.

    Does the boiled hop sack go in the fermenter with the wert or is it discarded? Directions are not clear on what to do with it. 

    Asked by: SBunn
    The hop sack will stay in the fermenter.
