I picked up a Mr. Beer kit on Craigslist for $10 and didn't expect much. I ordered the 3 - Beer Mix to play around with it. I watched several videos on Youtube to learn to brew and I selected the Red Ale for my first batch. I let it sit in the fermenter for 12 days before bottling and let 2 bottles condition for 7 days before chilling and drinking (I am going to let the other bottles condition for an additional 7 days before refrigerating). I tried the first bottle today and I'm very impressed! It's a little sweet since I opened it a little early but it's still way better than the beer I had last night at a restaurant! I have read online that it should ferment for 2 weeks in the keg, 2 weeks in the bottle, and 2 weeks in the fridge so I am going to try that for the remaining bottles. I also went to Mr. Beer's website and ordered UME and hops to make other recipes with the other refills. I also ordered 2 more kegs and 2 cases of bottles so I never run out of my homebrew!
Overall I am very impressed and will continue to try more Mr. Beer products!
