I have been Brewing with Mr.Beer for 2 or three years now but it really has picked up in the past year. I always have something fermenting carbonating or cold aging at all times. I have learned much about the brewing process in the past year and at this point I see no reason to use any other home brewing system then Mr.Beer. This is of course my opinion and is not meant to disparage any other Brewers who use more complex methods for brewing. Ipersonally don't want to spend hours brewing beer. The ease and simplicity of the Mr.Beer is unrivaled I believe. So if you read the book that comes with the kit and move past the standard lower ABV refills you can make some outstanding beers. So the bad mouthing of Mr.Beer system by some I believe is uncalled for.
1. Sanitize per instructions always.
2. Ferment 2-3 weeks
3. Put keg in fridge overnight before bottling to clarify it.
4. Measure priming sugar exact and fill bottles with the filling wand, and get that locking spigot.
5. Let carbonate the full two weeks, and use a few or all of the plastic bottles to see how the carbonating process is progressing.
6. Put in fridge for two weeks to cold condition and have the flavors meld together better.
7. Serve beer at the proper temp for the style, and use the proper glass for the style.
8. Get more then one Mr.Beer keg fermenter and have your own in home brewery, without complaints from the wife that it takes too much time and space.
