American Style Lager Beer Recipe
1 can West Coast Pale Ale
1 pouch Booster™ (2 cups)
1/3 oz Willamette Hops
1 Muslin Hop Bag
1 packet One Step
1. Clean and sanitize the following equipment according to your Brew Keg instructions: a pot of
three quart size or greater, a metal spoon or metal whisk, your keg fermenter, keg lid, spigot
assembly, muslin hop bag, and a funnel or cup measure for transferring to the keg fermenter as
well as your can opener. Keep all on a sanitized surface.
2. Place 4 cups of water in the pot. Gradually stir in the required amount of Booster™ until
dissolved. Bring the water to a boil, then remove from heat.
3. Add the West Coast Pale Ale and 1/3 oz Willamette hops (in hop bag). Stir with a sanitized
spoon or whisk until fully dissolved. This mixture is called the wort.
Note: Hops will appear as green leaf particles and will not dissolve.
4. Add 4 quarts of cold tap water to your sanitized keg fermenter.
5. Add the wort from the saucepan to the brew keg using the funnel or cup measure, and top up
with cold tap water to the 8.5 quart mark. Stir to make sure that the wort is all one temperature.
Preferable temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees.
Warning: If the temperature is too hot, there is risk of killing the yeast.
6. Sprinkle the yeast from the packet on top of the wort. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then stir the
wort vigorously with the sanitized spoon or whisk.
7. Screw the lid in place and set the keg fermenter in a room with a stable temperature (68 to
76°F is best). Leave the fermenter for at least one week, or until the fermentation has ceased.
8. Bottle in PET carbonated beverage bottles or non-screw top beer bottles, using the correct
amount of priming sugar as directed in your Brewing with Mr. Beer® booklet. Carbonate as usual.
For best results allow to lager for at least two to four weeks before popping the first one open.
