DetailsWith a crisp clean flavor and easy going attitude, our Mexican Style Cerveza is a crowd pleasing thirst quencher. Often seen served with a wedge of lime, this sensational summer slammer satisfies in a big way - it goes down easy and keeps you coming back for more. The light flavor and exceptional drinkability give it mass appeal and make it a surefire hit at every event. It’s also an easy one to keep on hand to please your Buds when they show up to ‘share’ your beer. Like all of our 20 minute boil kits, this one is easy on the wallet and a time saver in the kitchen - and if you think it brews up quick, wait till you see how fast your friends drink it down.
The light flavor of our Mexican Style Cerveza make it the perfect canvas to get creative with. Try adding some lime peel during the last minute of the boil for an extra zesty flavor. If you’re feeling bold, toss in some chopped jalapenos (5-10 should do nicely) during the last 5 minutes of the boil to add some kick to the flavor.
Our ingredients for this recipe include a 3 lb. 5 oz. Munton's Mexican Style Cerveza hopped can kit, 2 lb. light DME, 1/2 oz. Hallertau aroma pellet hops, priming sugar and yeast.

4.6 / 5.051 ReviewsFun to brew and customizeThis beer is easy and fun to make. I have brewed this style beer at least 4 times now with each brewing being customized from the last by adding differnt Yeast, hops and DME. I have been very pleased by all of the results and am learning how using different ingredients can change the end product. I now like keep a can of the Muntons base in my beer kit pantry.February 16, 2015Pepper beerI have used this kit twice as a base for pepper beer. 1 cup of habanero peppers (Don't use the seeds)chopped up and socked it vodka for a week. add just the vodka to the secondary, Great pepper beer.August 20, 2015Pepper beerI've used this kit twice for Pepper beer and it's seems to be the perfect combo. I use 1 cup of chopped jalapenos and 1 cup of habanero socked in vodka for 1 week and then added to the secondary. It will get you attention!September 12, 2015Not Brand New to Homebrew but Not an Old timer EitherI am just slow gettin around to some things. I ordered a couple kits over 2 years ago. One Mexican Cerveza and one Black Dog. I am finally getting to taste the Cerveza. It has been a long month of waiting. But I say it was worth the wait and the next batch may get a little longer wait time.
I like the taste, and it has carbonated well. The color is a nice medium reddish amber. I added 2# of DME and upped the abv a little and it did not seem to hurt the taste, but what do I know. I never made this Cerveza before.
I am satisfied and I will make it again...and again. Thanks Midwest Supplies. This is a fun way to pass some time making it and then later, drinking it. I recommend this kit if you like a nice drinkable beer.
As me dear ol Dad use to say, "It's Larrupin." Yep, it is in the dictionary.January 16, 2017Wife's favoriteThis is my wife's favorite brew. It's too lite for me but I keep brewing it because it's easy, cheap and it keeps her happy. Great combinations.March 20, 2010What Corona "Extra" should beI have to admit that I am a hard core hop head, but I also love an ice cold Corona with a lime during the warmer months. Honestly, Corona sucks without a fresh lime, and this kit is what Corona "Extra" should be �?���� it�?���s darker than Corona and has more body, but seems to be just as clear and enjoyable on those hot days, and it�?���s good without the lime, meaning I think it�?���s a better overall beer. I will be brewing more of this so I don�?���t run out this summer.April 29, 2010Easy and passes for a true cervasaAlmost too easy to be so goodJune 11, 2010EXCELLENT TAISTAll though very disappointed. Beer disapeared FAST. 5 gal.,GONE in 2 weeks, found friends coming over out of the woodwork.I suggest making a double batch._x000D_I also added a quarter cup of plain kero syrup to the boil for a little extra zing._x000D_EXCELLENT, VERY EXCELLENT BREW!!!November 21, 2010Not Corona - Fuller taste, much hoppierExpected Corona ended up with a much fuller flavor and hoppier beer. Would recommend to first time brewers.November 25, 2010OK at Best, but Not CoronaI made this kit this summer because my father in law really likes Corona. This kit came out OK. It sort of reminds me of a Corona in one sense, but then not in another. It doesn't really remind me of any other Mexican style beers I've had prior but I'm not a big fan of that style of beer normally. My wife says she likes it, but we still have a 6 pack left from making it 6 months prior so I think it is really a like beer, not a love beer. I think the flavor was more bold and tart than I was hoping for in this kit. Still I think it is worth making and trying if you really love Mexican Cerveza.December 13, 2010

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answerswhat is the ABV on this beer?BEST ANSWER: I got about 5.2%. Just right.how does this work and how much will it make?BEST ANSWER: Hello Randy Da Smurf,
Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! You basically mix the malt syrup in 2-2.5 gallons of water, boil it and add the hops per the instructions. You then cool it, add it to 3-3.5 gallons of water in a fermenting vessel, add yeast, wait for it to ferment, add sugar, bottle it, wait until it is carbonated, and enjoy. A more thorough explanation can be found at the following link. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/media/downloads/618/Mexican_Style_Cervesa_instructions.pdf This kit will make 5 gallons of beer which is approximately 48 12 oz bottles of beer. I hope that this information is helpful!Most recipe kits offer recommended yeast choices. I don't see that here. Does this mean the yeast really is included in the recipe kit? I've seen that on the boxes and in the description before, but have always had to purchase yeast separately. If the yeast is included, what kind is it? And if it's not, what would you recommend?BEST ANSWER: Yes, the yeast is included in this kit. It can be found under the white cap on the can of malt extract. the type of yeast included is a neutral ale yeast.
