    PROFILE:

    An “Americanized” version of a hefeweizen, this golden hybrid ale combines wheat and barley to create an easy drinking, but full-bodied brew. Just enough of everything to keep the brew refreshing but not so heavy that it won’t be the perfect, everyday, go-to beer. The addition of Saaz hops adds some balance without overwhelming the malt flavors. Lacking the strong spicy banana esters found in hefeweizens, this American wheat beer has a more neutral and cleaner flavor than its German counterparts.

    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 extract, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

      1. Remove the yeast packets from under the lids of the cans of Brewing Extract, then place the unopened cans in hot tap water.
      2. Place the 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 water to a boil, add in hop sack, then remove from heat.
      4. Open the cans of Brewing Extract and pour the contents into the hot mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort.
      5. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
      6. Pour the wort, including the hop sack, into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. You'll leave the hop sack in the wort for the duration of fermentation. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk. 
      7. Sprinkle both yeast packets into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir.
      8. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 65° and 80° F (20°-26.6° 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.
      9. You’ll ferment for 21 days total. 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.

      10. 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).
