    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 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 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 top of 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 cans of Brewing Extract,(not needed for this recipe), then place the unopened cans in hot tap water.

    2. Place the packet of pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material

    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring this mixture to a boil, add in your hop sack, then remove from heat.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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 cold water to the 8.5-liter mark).

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

    8. Sprinkle both the yeast packets 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: 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 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 using 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 to sit 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 White tiger from Loved it!! I got this refill during a bogo free and boy did I luck out! I followed the instructions and let it ferment for three weeks. Then I let it carbonate for two before I tried one. That was a mistake because between me and my buddy we drank them all in a couple weekends! I brewed the second one and let it carbonate two and conduction two before I cracked one open and it was just as good as the first batch! Although the refill is a little pricey, the finished product is well worth it! I will be ordering this refill again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Ittosai from Excellent! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a balanced flavor with a nice kick. I purchased extra ingredient(s) (Wheat Yeast and Hallertau Hops) for the brew and it turned out great. I was fortunate enough to try my sample bottle for the first time with some Sushi and I was blown away by how good it was! I'm looking to brew some more after I finish my little project with some other recipe's. Cheers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by hammerb from My New Go-To-Brew Through Mr. Beer I have been searching for my go-to-brew for quite sometime. I believe that i have found it in Wild Wheat. Where I live Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat is the undisputed champion of beers. I believe Wild Wheat has knocked Boulevard down a notch. I followed the directions to the "T" and now am looking forward to adjusting and tweaking the brew to make it even better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by carnahjj from great tase "This was my first brew, and turned out really good. I brewed for 4 weeks, bottled for 1 week and condition for about 24 hours. I have noticed my bottles not conditioning yet are tasting better the longer they condition. I will let some bottle and condition much longer to see the difference.Great unique flavor. "

    Rated 5 out of 5 by HoppySmile2u from Add Some Honey Malt! I brewed a 5 gallon batch of this a few months ago, added some honey malt! it was so good i'm brewing more!, I changed a few things though, i added booster, and a golden LME. gave it a bit more punch of alcohol with a nice crisp honey finish

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Donald from More in 8 weeks Most aggressive fermenting yet with two yeasts. Just started the brew and intend to bottle in 4 weeks. Let you know drinking results in December. Longer bottle ageing h mellows the beer, in my view.
