These simple instructions will familiarize you with the basic brewing procedures of the Mr. Beer homebrewing kit using this refill. This refill will produce 8 liters of premium quality beer with approximately 5% alcohol by volume (ABV).


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 in hot tap water.
  2. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring water to a boil, and then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and pour it into the hot water. Open Booster packets and slowly pour into hot mixture while stirring. Continue to stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
  3. Fill keg with cold tap water to the 4-quart mark on the back.
  4. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk.
  5. Sprinkle the yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
  6. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 68°and 76° F (20°-25° C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.

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. 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).

St. Patrick's Irish Stout Standard Refill is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First attempt suprise This was my first attempted brew. I figured if I brewed something that I could manage to drink, I would consider it a beginning success. It turned out that not only was I able to drink it, but I actually want to drink it. I set the bar low for my first attempt, that was a mistake. I was not a mistake brewing this fine beer. I usual drink a glass of beer several nights a week. I currently have two microbrews in the fridge that I reach past to grab my St. Patrick's Irish Stout instead. It's that good. I really can't see anyone being disappointed with this beer if you like stouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous, even without Nitrogen I ordered this and made it, figuring I like Guinness. This stuff came out amazing. Dark, heavy, a nice firm head on it, and super smooth to drink. I added one pack of booster on top of the ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome brew Bought two of these around Christmas. It was on sale. Brewed it in December because I wanted it to be ready for our Super Bowl party. I did add some extra grains to boost up the body as I was going for a hearty stout. Used both cans of the stout malt and LME soft pack. I cooked the following grains first; 1.5 lbs 2 row, 2oz chocolate, 2oz roasted barley, 1oz carapils. I also added extra hops, .25 oz willamette at 60 minutes and .25 oz willamette at end of boil. Then I added the Irish stout malt mix and fermented in a five gallon bucked. Did a secondary fermentation in glass carboy. Made a four gallon batch. Served this at our Super Bowl party and it was a Hugh hit. Smooth and heavy with a thick head!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stout My favorite! Even better than a store bought brew that starts with a G and cost way more. Makes for a perfect evening beverage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth a Try for St. Patrick's Day This was my third batch as a home-brew novice. I wanted to try this Irish dark variety in honor of one of my golfing buddies, in time for St. Patrick’s Day tasting. Working backwards on the calendar meant 3 weeks in the fermenting vat then 3 weeks in the bottles. We didn't notice a lot of flavor after the 3 weeks in bottles, though it seemed fuller after the 4th week. A bit nutty (perhaps) to my taste buds. I should say, though, that I haven’t had much experience with these darker varieties, and so hadn’t formed high expectations in advance. Several other users have suggested adding some coffee, and if I attempt this style again I may try that. Possibly one of the more-enhanced recipes, too. This one was okay, just not among my favorites.
