PROFILE:

This juicy IPA attributes its fruity flavor to the addition of not only the juice and zest of tangerines, but also the citrusy and tropical characteristics of Cascade and German Mandarina hops. This brew has just enough malt backbone to carry these fruit flavors without adding too much sweetness or body. With the effervescent aroma of juicy tangerines, and the bright floral flavors of the tropics.

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. Remove the yeast packet (not needed for this recipe) from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened can and LME softpack in hot tap water.
    2. Place the contents of the German Mandarina Hops packet (1/2 oz.) into a hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material. 
    3. Using sanitized tools, grate and juice the tangerines. 
    4. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. 
    5. Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, and add BrewMax LME Softpack - Golden. Stir until LME is dissolved, then return to a low boil. 
    6. Add the German Mandarina hop sack and half of the tangerine zest to the pot and let it boil for 10 minutes. While this is boiling, add the Cascade hops to the 2nd hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material. 
    7. After the 10 minute boil has passed, add the 2nd hop sack to the pot and remove from heat. 
    8. Open the can of Long Play Session IPA Brewing Extract and pour contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort. 
    9. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back. 
    10. Pour the wort, including the hop sacks, into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg up to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sacks in the wort for the duration of the fermentation. Stir vigorously with the sanitized spoon or whisk. 
    11. Sprinkle ONLY the Safale US-05 yeast packet into the keg and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
    12. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59° and 71.6° F (15°-22° 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.
    13. 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.
    14. After 1 week of fermentation add the tangerine juice, the rest of the zest, and any pulp (pulp is optional). At this time, you will also add the second package of Cascade hops to the final hop sack, tying it closed and trimming away excess material. Add to the fermenter with the fruit, and quickly close the lid. (To sanitize the final hop sack: boil the hop sack in water for a few minutes before adding the hops.)
    15. 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 to download by visiting our help desk.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good IPA I have had this bottle conditioning for around 2 weeks now and it just keeps getting better. I had one after 24 hours in the fridge and my friend said it tasted like beer with orange flavored medicine. He's and idiot lol but it wasn't great. My other friend had it a week later and liked it. Trust the process on this one. The only thing I did different was grate fresh zest when it was added instead of saving it from start like the instructions tell you. I also did not read the directions that tell you to put ingredients in the fridge that you are not going to immediately use. Overall a good first IPA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4th times the Charm! 4th Mr Beer and this is the Winner so far. Nice hoppy IPA ! Favourite beer at the moment is Funky Buddha Hop Gun and this gets me into the same ballpark at least according to my taste. My previous 3 beers have been drinkable but this one is really good. It has no yeasty smell like my previous beers, It has a great head when poured. According to the Hydrometer it is coming in at 5.6% abv. Not sure where the rest of my alcohol went? Brewed at 69F for 3 weeks, bottles stored at around 72F for another 3 weeks and will not make it to week 4. I used Mandarins as I could not find Tangerines but I cant really taste them in the beer maybe my pallet is not trained enough yet but since I started brewing with Mr Beer back in June of this year I definitely appreciate the different varieties and styles of beer more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tangerines Not in Season? Several previous reviewers noted they were not able to find fresh tangerines, but I was confident that wouldn't be an issue with our local highly-regarded grocery store. But I was wrong; no mandarin oranges available either. So my note here has nothing to do with the actual beer (still looking forward to trying it) but a suggestion to the friendly Mr. Beer marketing staff that they may want to add something like "In season" as part of the ingredients list. (My wife wasn't surprised tangerines weren't going to be available in June here in the northeast but I apparently didn't give it enough prior thought.) I found some tangerine extract syrup available on another home-brew site so will be trying that instead. And will report the results later of what I'm confident will be another Mr. Beer success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best beer I've ever made! I brewed this beer on St. Patrick's Day in anticipation of the upcoming summer. I followed the recipe exactly except I used mandarins instead of tangerines. (I couldn't find tangerines at the store, but I learned that all tangerines are classified as a type of mandarin orange, but not all mandarin oranges are tangerines. Close enough, right?) The wort tasted great and had such promise! Added the reserved juice & zest and dry-hopped the Cascade hops at 1 week of fermentation as per the directions. Still very excited about this beer. Then, came bottling time. During bottling on 4/2, the beer tasted like a bit like a screwdriver with a bitter orange flavor and some hoppiness! My excitement had turned into grave concern. When I cracked open the first one on 5/10, I was ecstatic to learn the flavors had balanced out during conditioning. This beer is delicious! The best I've ever made. A few night later I happened to be out to eat and had the opportunity to try Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. My beer is a slightly less hoppy version of the tasty Deschutes beer. I'm guessing I could replicate the Deschutes merely by dry-hopping a couple more times with the Cascade hops. Try this one! You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I've found my new favorite brew! This one is amazing -- great interplay with the citrusy hops & tangerines. The first bottle was a little more bitter than I like but the next bottle a few days later had mellowed to a dream drink! And the tangerines I used were a little past their prime. I can hardly wait to see how good this is with fresh ones next time! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great IPA I’ll add to the chorus praising this beer. Nicely Bitter, yet with a smooth mouthfeel I can only imagine the tangerine provides. Admittedly, I really like IPAs. Ive brewed half a dozen or so Mr Beer products, including other IPAs and this is the first I can definitely say I’ll be brewing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent IPA and Easy to Brew This was the 2nd mrb batch I ever brewed. I couldn't find tangerines in the store and substituted some mandarin oranges. The result? A great tasting, easy to drink IPA. I've shared with a few friends and all can't believe this is my second batch of beer. Not much fruit flavor in this but just a nice overall balanced IPA. Not sure if this has to do with substitution or if this is normal for this brew. I'll be making this again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor; light on hops Great flavor. Because the white on the other side of the peel is so thin on a tangerine, I just peeled two, deseeded them, and threw everything in a food processor and added at after week 1. It was my first beer ever, and I learned a lot since but it turned out great. I've since moved to all grain, so I'll rate this as an easy recipe! I will definitely make this again though.
