Is there a recipe using no HME? Maybe mixing two different LMEs and tossing some hops in?? Looking to make a malty beer with around 15-25ibu

That's the next step in your brewing evolution, using lme or dme and your own hop schedule. One of the first "post Mr. Beer" batches I did was a Hefeweizen recipe using wheat dme, hallertau hops, and wb-06 yeast. I added some orange peel and coriander seed in the boil for a poor mans Blue Moon. Go to beer recipes.org and do a search for extract and you will find a lot of different recipes, some really good and some just ok.

Not from Mr. Beer... You need to do 60 min boils and for most beers a grain steep first.

Lots of recipes out there.  Just make sure you are doing one for 2.5 gallons as most you will find online are for 5 galloons.

Here's a very basic pale ale, but it doesn't use any MrB ingredients. Really, buying the LMEs from them to make a batch without the canned HME will get pretty expensive. This recipe shouldn't cost more than $20 out the door, as written.

 

Steep 4 oz. of Crystal/Caramel 40L in 2 quarts of water starting at 155° F for 30 minutes. Strain into a large pot. Add 2 more qts. of water, then add 3 pounds of of light (or golden wheat) dry malt extract, stirring while sprinkling it in slowly, until dissolved. Bring this to a boil, then add 1 oz. of Nugget hops and boil for 60 minutes. When time is up, add 1/2 oz Centennial hops (or whatever your favourite is) at flameout. Cool to 70° F.

 

Add this mix to 1 gallon of cool water already in the LBK, then top off to 8.5 Q mark. Using a wire whisk, mix this thoroughly - this is both making sure the mix is even and also aerates the wort some. Take your gravity sample now, if doing so. Then, sprinkle on 1/2 packet of US-05 yeast, close up the LBK, leaving the lid slightly loose (back off 1/4 turn from snug). Keep the wort temperature at 65-66° F. Leave for 12 days, then add the remaining 1/2 oz of hops used at flameout. Leave that for 5 days, cold crash for three days, take your FG reading, then bottle.
