STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions to download 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. Place the contents of Nugget pellet hops packet into the first hop sack, tie it closed, then trim away excess material.
    2. Remove the yeast packet (NOT needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the Brewing Extract can, then place the unopened Brewing Extract can in hot tap water.
    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 6 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot, then open the DME, and slowly sprinkle in half the DME (100gm) into the pan of cool water and stir to dissolve. Increase your heat to medium-high. Continue stirring constantly to keep the rising foam in check. If it begins to rise, pull the pan off the heat and lower the temperature slightly, continuing to stir until you hit the hot break which is where the foam has subsided and the solution is now safely boiling. Add in your first hop sack, allow this mixture to simmer on LOW for 30 minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Slowly add the other half of the DME and the brown sugar stirring vigorously to avoid clumping.
    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract, pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
    5. Fill keg with refrigerated tap water to the 4-quart mark on the back.
    6. 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.
    7. Sprinkle ONLY the US-05 yeast packet (included in your recipe) into the keg and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
    8. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59°and 75° F (15°-24°C), ideally about 68° F (20°C) and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.
    9. At the 1 week mark, sanitize your second hop sack, place the contents of the Citra pellet hops packet into it, tie the hop sack closed, then trim away excess material. Your hops will remain in the fermenter for the duration of fermentation.
    10. Open the lid of the fermenter and toss in the hop sack, replace lid. Do not stir.


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 to download by visiting our help desk.)
