    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.


    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,  then place the unopened can in hot tap water.

    2. Place the packet of Oat Flakes into your muslin bag, tying closed.

    3. Place both packets of pellet hops into the second muslin bag, tying closed and trim away excess material.

    4. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Add in your booster and mix until dissolved. Then Increase your heat to medium-high until the water reaches 155° F.

    5. Add the muslin bag with the Oat Flakes into the hot water and steep for 30 minutes between 155-165 degrees.

    6. After 30 minutes, carefully lift the grain sack out of the pot and place into a strainer/colander. Rinse the sack over the pot with 1 cup of hot water. Let drain then discard.

    7. Bring the grain water to a low rolling boil, add in your hop sack, and let it simmer at a low boil for 20 minutes then remove from heat.

    8. Open the can 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.

    9. 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.

    10. Add 2 Whole Beano Tablets to the 1 gallon of cold water in your fermenter.

    11. 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).

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

    13. Sprinkle the US-05 yeast 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 14 days.


    After 14 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 (17 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 a 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 solutions 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 sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    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 rap82 from Summertime on the boat First try with this one, and I really love it. My son likes a less malty flavor in his IPA’s and I noticed this has Beano tablets added. When I looked into what that does, I found it reduces the malt flavor making it a lighter beer. Okay, I guess that works. Well it not only worked, but made for a great IPA. It seems many microbreweries around here have been moving to the lighter style. So this matched that perfectly. Then my son tried it. First thing he said - This is the one we take on the boat this summer! Success!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Mt50 from Great IPA & Lo-cal I’ve tried the other “Workout” recipes & liked them both. This one is probably my favorite. It’s not so much light as it is crisp, and surprisingly full flavored. The hop profile is delicious & it has a good IPA type bitterness. This is after 3-4 weeks conditioning. I wish I had taken a photo, I cold crashed & it is as clear as the picture. I highly recommend this. Compare this to the “Not Plato’s Brut IPA Recipe” which also has the crispness from Beano tablets, but adds a second booster, so not quite as lo-cal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by WPOrion from Great IPA with the perfect ingredients! Your gonna love the 'body' of this IPA! Finally cracked open the first tester of Workout IPA. It was an absolute success. Good taste and the perfect hint of that Citra hop flavor and smoothness of the oat while maintaining a subtle bitter finish. Thank you!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Older one from Full Flavor We used to buy a commercial lo-carb version of this but it disappeared from our local market. I had hoped this would be somewhat like that and it is spot on after two weeks of bottle conditioning. The color is golden with a small white head. I’ve never had a LME beer turn out a lighter color, but this one did. After three to four weeks, It is much more like the flavor profile of an All Day ipa, meaning it has a lot of hoppiness and a decent amount of bitterness. Outstanding, if you really like that ipa profile. You better like the centennial hops because this reeks of it. Two suggestions, 1. make sure you cold crash this one, I didn’t and have a little too much sediment in the bottles. 2. You might want to change the hops a for a different profile. This will be made again. 4.5/5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Davidb4718 from Amazing shocking flavor Amazing taste for a light beer. So far this is my favorite mr beer recipes. This beer has flavors of sweet grapefruit with a bitterness off the back side. Very easy session drink. I will make this one again for sure. You can’t beat this low cal/low carb easy to make beer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Hitchhikerken from Brewing review I brewed the Workout IPA. There were extra ingredients that I was not used to but the directions were clear, except that I was missing one of the muslin bags and the 2 whole bean tablets. Still waiting to taste the final product.

    I would like to omit the booster  1.what would the calorie content be without it ? 2 .what is the ABV without it ?  Thanks !

    Asked by: NYCDennis
    Leaving out the Booster will drop the ABV down to about 3.25% and the calories down to around 100. FYI, It will probably also increase the IBUs a little, but not a ton. If it tastes a little extra bitter, that's why. Cheers!

    I brewed the Workout IPA 2 days ago and followed the instructions to the letter however I still have very little krausen or yeast activity on the top of my wort. Is this normal with this recipe?

    Asked by: CDogs Brewing
    It can be, especially if your brewing temp are on the lower side. Any Krausen and sedimentation(trub) means you are fermenting! Cheers!

    What is the purpose of the beano?

    Asked by: DirtyScrubsHomebrewing
    The enzymes break down the extra carbohydrates into sugars the yeast can digest.

    Do you remove the hop sack prior to adding the brewing extract?

    Asked by: Bryan27
    You will leave the hop sack in during fermentation.
