Brew delicious beer at home with the best-selling kit
Mr. Beer has been the world-wide leader in the sale and production of beer mixes and home brewing accessories since the 1970s. These guys know their beer.
That's why we were so pleasantly surprised when they tapped us (oh, pun intended) to help launch their Craft Brews Collection. This kit makes it super easy to brew two gallons of craft-quality beer without any special equipment.
Seriously, you'll make awesome-tasting beer
What separates Mr. Beer's home brewing systems from all other at-home kits is that Mr. Beer is first and foremost a brewery. Coopers Brewery was established in 1862 and is one of Australia's largest breweries.
The same ingredients, technology, and equipment used to produce their beers is used to manufacture the beer mixes used in Mr. Beer home brewing systems.
Just add water for craft-quality beer
Unlike other home brewing systems that require boiling grains over a stove, Mr. Beer is downright simple to use. Just add water, ferment, and carbonate.
With the Mr. Beer Craft Collection, you can make two gallons of delicious beer in as little as 28 days.
Professional ingredients = success every time
The success rate with most home brewing kits (trust us, we've tried a lot of them) is usually pretty low. They always taste funky or downright narsty.
With Mr. Beer, your success rate will be 100%. Their ingredients and supplies are top-notch, and the process is basically fool-proof. There's nothing more frustrating than waiting a few weeks for your beer to ferment to only discover that it tastes horrific.
Rest assured that Mr. Beer delivers nothing but great-tasting suds.
Everything you need to make a case of beer (and lots more!)
The Craft Collection Kit includes everything you need to make two gallons of beer. You'll receive: the 2-gallon fermenter, 11 bottles, label stickers, carbonation drops, detailed printed instructions, and even an instructional DVD (honestly, you probably won't need it because the printed instructions are spectacularly easy to follow).
Please note that the Craft Collection Kit includes the Diablo IPA.
Here's the lowdown on each of the refills:
|American Ale||Rich golden color, light toasty malt character with a citrusy hop aroma and crisp bitterness.||3.7%|
|Diablo IPA||A fiendishly hopped American IPA. Fiery amber in color with intense mouthfeel, displaying a blend of floral spice and stonefruit aromas with a firm and lingering bitter finish. For those not afraid of hops!||5.5%|
|Oktoberfest Lager||Also referred to as Märzenbier, this malty, deep amber colored beer features a smooth body, toffee-like malt richness, and a full, biscuit like bouquet. Sample the celebrated beer of Munich’s world famous Oktoberfest.||3.7%|
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Couldn't a kid buy this and make beer illegally?
Answer: You can do a lot of things illegally if you really want. We'd like to think that involved parents would stumble upon their child brewing two gallons of beer, confiscate the beer, punish their child, and then consume the beer themselves.
Question: What do the beers taste like?
Answer: The kit includes the Diablo IPA. Please refer to the table above that outlines (in decidedly flowery language) what to expect from each brew.
Side note: Jamie tried all of them and they're all super tasty!
Question: Why would I bother with this when I go to any store and buy beer?
Answer: We've used this explanation before, but it's apropos here as well. A car is a more efficient mode of transportation than walking. However, taking a walk is a different experience that can be just as (or even more) enjoyable than a car ride.
The same is true with brewing your own beer. You're not going to replace your favorite store-bought beers with Mr. Beer. But there's something undeniably fun about making something yourself. And when that thing happens to be beer, how can you not be psyched?
So, saddle up and take Mr. Beer for a spin. It's a fun experience and it ends with some really tasty beer. Enjoy the ride!
