American Series Standard Refill 4 Pack

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I just received my order of the American Series Standard Refill 4 Pack with the American Ale, Lager, Light and Porter.  I just noticed that there are no fermenting/conditioning specifications on the MrBeer site.  I know it needs to ferment for 3 weeks but how long should these condition after the carbonation period?  A couple of weeks??

Each one of those cans with booster will produce a brew of about 4.5-4.7 ABV. After the 3 week Carbonation period, 1-3 weeks should be good. Good rule of @RickBeer is 3-4. 3 weeks fermentation and 4 weeks Carb/Cond. It works well for the lower ABV brews.

Brew on!

Do you live near a home brew shop?

I got the same 4 pack. I looked up recipes for each of those hme’s on the mrb site and bought ingredients like hops and grains at my local HBS. It was cool talking to them about what I was doing and they offered lots of suggestions. 

 

I did Thunder Bay ipa, Black beer’d porter, horse’s ass ale, and grass cutter is on deck. 

 

Or or you can make them straight up. Just my 2 cents.

Cool I might try that once I get a few basic brews under my belt.
