A great mash-up, this dark wheat ale is velvety smooth on your palate as it luxuriously slides down your throat. The hazy melding of chocolate malt, wheat and banana/clove flavors all meld together surprisingly well. It's a conundrum, kind of like its namesake art style. All that's left is a small smile left lingering as you pause and think, "Ah, Velvet Elvis is definitely in the house!"

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 packets (not needed for this recipe) from under the lids of the casn of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened cans 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 cans of Brewing Extract and pour them into the hot water. 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 ONLY the Safbrew WB-06 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 59° and 75° F (15°-24° C), ideally about 72°F and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 14 days.
    7. 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.)
