Call me Mr. Beer Soaked Hombrewer – part 2

Mr. Beer Premium EditionI mentioned earlier that I ordered a Mr. Beer homebrew kit. Well, it showed up last week and today was brew day.

It was simple as can be:

  1. 10 minutes to sanitize
  2. Dissolve the “booster” in 4 cups water (booster is basically corn syrup solids)
  3. Bring to boil, remove from heat
  4. Add extract, stir to create wort.
  5. Pour wort into fermenter
  6. Add cold water to make 8.5 qts
  7. Pitch yeast, stir, store in cool dark place
  8. Wait

Now we wait. I followed the Pale Ale recipe exactly as described in the packaging. I want to see how it turns out before tweaking the Mr. Beer recipes. All in all it was a very simple process with little to no mess. First impression… this is pretty awesome. I’ll report back on bottle day. Until then I’ll be emptying bottles. Cheers!
