Great, but dont rush this one
First tasting after 2 weeks in the bottles I was disappointed, but the longer it sat the better it got. By the time it was nearly gone I fell in love with it. I will be making it again, but way in advance of when I want to drink it, will leave in bottles at least 2 months before opening.

Looks can decieve
I was really surprised when I tasted this. My batch came out a very dark red color. The taste is not heavy at all just smooth malty & slightly sweet, with a clean aftertaste, great with pasta or seafood.

Pure Deliciousness
As a huge fan of Shiner Bock, I was anxious to give this kit a whirl. The flavor is incredible, full of that rich malty flavor I was looking for. A 20 minute kit is a great way to get a quality beer in a fraction of the brew time. Definitely worth repeating, I may even make a double batch next time!

Really Good Extract Kit
I have been brewing beer for a lot of years and now I like the "No Boil" or "Short Boil" kits. They are fast and the quality is there.
A couple of changes I made to this kit are as follows:
1. Since the LME is hopped, I do not boil the LME, however, I do use the 20 minutes to boil the hops packet in plain water.
I went to the Munton's U.K. site and pulled the instructions for the Bock kit.
I boiled 3.5 liters of Spring Water, added the LME, stirred well then added the DME and stirred the hell out of it.
Poured into the Primary added the rest of the water to 5 gallons. The temp was 86 F.
2. I sprinkle the yeast into the primary fermenter, seal it and let it go.
I let it ferment for 10 days (I would go the full 2 weeks next time..
3. I do not add priming sugar to each bottle. I prime the entire 5 gallon batch and then bottle.
The Bock beer is clean, good body and a pleasure to drink.. I will brew this one again.

I am brewing the Wheat next time.

Wow!
I usually just brew for myself and my family, but this brew was so easy I have really enjoyed getting out of my brew bubble and giving to friends and acquaintances. Without exception this is the best 20 minute boil kit I have ever used.

Easy!
Start your yeast the day before brewing and you can be in and out of the kitchen in less than an hour! These 20 minute kits are an awesome timesaver. Thanks MBS!

Great Simple Beer Kit
I brewed it, OG 1.048 FG 1.016. Besides not being able to get he FG down to 1.012 or so everything went well. I let it sit for 2 week s then bottled. Tried it 10 days later and it has full carbonation and tastes great1 malty, bock taste to it. Will buy again but good quick turn around beer.

Great Little Beer
Good beer to brew. Lots of fun and it tastes especially good. I let my age a little bit longer than normal and after a few months it turned out perfect.

I am introducing a friend to brewing this weekend. I use a 10 gallon kettle. Can this kit be made as a full boil?
J E on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sure, any kit can be done with a "full-boil" ! It makes certain that it's all sterile, since it's all boiled, so it's a good way to go! You do have more liquid to chill after the boil is complete, though. With a wort chiller, it is no problem, of course. You could boil about 5.5 to 5.75 gallons, so you end with just over 5 gallons in your primary to ferment. Happy Brewing! -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Hi. What's the shelf life of this kit?
E L on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Nothing really fresh in this kit so for best results make within 1 year, though you could probably wait for 2 full years and still get good results. Cheers!
