Oktoberfest kit was fresh, yeast performed well, the extract was tasty, and I ended up with a great brew.
Ordered 3/12/2015 and was promptly shipped and was very fresh. The expire date was 1 year and several months out. This was my 4th Mr Beer brew and my best so far.This kit does a great job, no issues and I will be buying again soon I'm sure.Modifications -I wanted a little more ABV so I added an additional 1lb 2.4 oz Briess Amber LME (I was shooting for 1lb) and also added 1oz Hallertau hops to balance the additional malt. I used a glass carboy instead of the Mr. Beer keg since I had a carboy available.Recipe -I brought ~1.5 gallons of spring water to a boil, added the 1 lb 2.4 oz Amber Briess LME and the hops, boiled for 20 minutes. Burner off. Added the Mr Beer hopped extract, cooled in ice bath. Added spring water to about 2+ gallons for an OG of 1.054. I aerated the wort (shook the glass carboy for several minutes) and pitched the dry Mr. beer yeast. Fermentation took off within 8 hrs, the yeast did a great job and active fermentation tapered off within 5 days.I left it in the carboy for 4 weeks to finish. FG was 1.007, which is ~87% attenuation and ABV ~6.3%.I kegged straight to a corney keg, and forced carbonated.Taste-Malty and smooth, great head that sticks around. Nice finish and good ABV level.Additional thoughts -Mind your sanitation, I'd recommend getting some Star San and use as directed.Oktoberfest technically is a lager recipe but this kit is intended to be fermented at ale temperatures and does so very well. I would recommend keeping the fermentation temp on the low end ~68. My first few batches fermented warmer than ideal and you could tell.Also, do not be in a hurry! Let this sit for a few weeks at least. Dark ales should be 3-4 weeks. Green beer is not good!Summary -This kit was fresh, yeast performed well, the extract was tasty, and I ended up with a great brew.Will buy again!Update -That 2 gallons did not go far, the keg kicked tonight. :o(That was a really nice brew.I already have my next brew lined up but I'm very tempted to jump on the Mr. Beer website's 30% off sale and grab some for some double batches... that sale is going on for a few more days.(I gave in - double batches of Oktoberfest, Voodoo, and Dark Forest Stout are on the way :o)
5You don't get all the product in the description.
I have purchased this multiple times but beware you do not get carb drops or the booster that the description of the product clearly specifies.Product descriptionStyle Name:American LagerAmerican Lager possess a rich golden color, medium body and full malt flavor, balanced with a very mild bitterness. Lager lovers will appreciate the subtle finishing hop aroma. Refill includes: BrewMax Booster, robust brewer's yeast, carbonation drops, and a no-rinse cleanser. The Product is manufactured in Australia.Still a good price at $10.99 for a pretty decent brew.
3Fun process that is rewarding
The brewing process is simple with this setup. The main things- I'd say -you have to think about are temperature and sanitation. The hardest part is the waiting. Just follow the instructions and wait a while to get a tastey drink. I did have one problem. I had trouble with a leak at the spigot on my first keg. I had it replaced. Everything is good now and I have 2 batches conditioning. The Oktoberfest tastes good, well I'm not a beer connoisseur, so there's that. Just remember to give it at least 4 weeks conditioning time. It's a cool process and very rewarding.
5Product out of date.
Product out of date. I received my order this afternoon and was really stoked about starting another homebrew batch. I saw on previous posts that extracts were received out of date so I wanted to verify mine was in date. There was a white printed label on the bottom of my can with "best before 19 June 2018" on it. Decided to peel this label off and sure enough the actual stamped on date for best if used by was 19 June 2017. Not sure who applied this label but it was very misleading and deceitful.I've ordered multiple mr beer refills from amazon and have never had any issues. Will not be ordering another one from amazon after this.
3Very good. A little pricey.
My only complaint is that my beer was about $8.50 / sixpack , and a cooper's kit done in a similar fashion was $4.73 / sixpack. The rest: It makes good beer.. The smaller size was much easier to deal with on brewing day and bottling day. I really liked the taste of the beer, and it was very easy to make. It really does taste like you went to the store and bought an import. I used 22oz of dry malt extract instead of sugar. This quote applies: "Also referred to as M rzenbier, 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."
4Easy Peazy Beery Squeezy
I bought this as the 2nd brew to try in my Mr Beer kit. It has everything needed including instructions on the side. I only gave this 4 stars because it's currently brewing. In 3-4 weeks I'll update my review once I taste the final product. My first brew was the blonde light beer that came in the kit and it was really good, so I can't imagine I won't update it to 5 full stars.
4Basically tastes like yeast with mild hop overtones
Basically tastes like yeast with mild hop overtones. There are no real direction as to what temp to ferment at. The name says lager, but there it said nothing about fermenting at a lower temp. The beer has a copper color as shown. It has good clarity. The taste is sub par. I'm not sure if it should have been done at a lower temp? If so, they should have given instructions to do so.
2Caution, product out of date, misleading
Misleading, I have ordered 2 Mr beer Irish Stout, both cans they have "stickers" best use before, instead of "stamp", after carefully removing the stamp I found out best before date was 19th June 2017 , But the sticker says 19th June 2018, clearly they cleaned the stamp ( but not that good ) And put a paper sticker with the new date on it. GOING BACKSee Pictures
1Almost like the expensive import.
You know the one I mean if you like Irish Stout beer. You can make this one yourself, and it's delicious. Just take time and follow the directions. The fermentation temperature is important. Probably not a problem if you have a basement or air conditioned room. I have to do mine during winter, so I can warm the room to the ideal temperature for fermentation. I like glass bottles, but I have used the plastic ones that came with my fermenter in a pinch.
4Inaccurate Product Description

Lager lovers will appreciate the subtle finishing hop aroma. Refill includes: BrewMax Booster, robust brewer's yeast, carbonation drops, and a no-rinse cleanser. The Product is manufactured in Australia." No booster or carbonation drops were included.
