PROFILE:

This hoppy brown ale drinks almost like an IPA, but with no bitterness. The tropical fruity notes of the Falconer’s Flight hop blend are carried by a smooth malt backbone provided by our Bewitched Amber ale. The smooth mouthfeel and excellent head retention is provided by the wheat in our Golden LME Softpack.

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 from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract (you won’t be using this yeast), then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    2. Place the contents of one packet of pellet hops (1/2 oz) into a hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material.
    3. Using the sanitized measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot.
    4. Bring mixture to a boil, add in the hop sack, then remove from heat. Open the can of Brewing Extract and the LME, pour 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 the yeast packet 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 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.
    9. 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.
    10. At the 1 week mark, place the 2nd pack of hops into the sanitized hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material. Quickly, but carefully add the hop sack to your fermenter and continue brewing.
    11. 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.)

Witch's Flight is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! and i'm not saying this due to the fact there's a prize for the best review for a product purchased on this website. I posted great compliments about this recipe on the Mr. Beer Forum. I usually rack my beer from primary to secondary, and so I sampled some of the witches flight, and at the time it was pretty hoppy to many. however, after a week in the secondary I tried another sample, and Wow! what a difference, the hops are more subtle and there's a slight flavor of a hint of chocolate. I added some victory malt grains to it to give it a lil toasty flavor, and I can taste a little of that as well. i'm brewing 5 gallons of this one, and so far I think this is the best tasting beer I've made with Mr. Beer products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very drinkable and balanced brown ale This is the 2nd brew I brewed, was very impressed by how balanced it was considering how simple it's built. One can of HME, one pack of LME, some hops. Nothing too fancy. Fermented for 3 wks, bottle conditioned for 3 more, then opened one up every week to test how it ages. Good right out of the gate. Brew is amber/ brown, slightly cloudy, yet has lager/ bread notes, nice aroma from the Falconer hops, lightly carbed (with table sugar, not the drops). Like a light porter, with subtle malt flavor and almost no bitter. Simple and great brew even my wife liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor, short conditioning time I cracked open my first Witch's Flight today four weeks after bottling and it is one tasty beer. The Falconer's Flight hops give it a great aroma. On the palate it has a pleasing hoppy bitterness, great mouth feel, and it goes down very smoothly with a lingering but satisfying after taste. It is quite simply delicious. And after brewing a lot of recipes that need months and months of conditioning it's nice to have one that's fully drinkable four weeks after bottling. I will definitely be brewing this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mr. Beer Recipe By far the best recipe I have done so far. This one was ready to drink at 2 weeks and continues to get better. Will definitely make this one again.
