A while ago I received a Mr. Beer Kit as a gift but I waited until the winter to give it a try because the summer temperatures in El Paso can be quite drastic. I am brewing the Blonde Ale extract that came with the kit. It has been sitting in the fermenter for almost two weeks now at a temperature of about 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit. I have the fermenter in a cooler to keep my dog and the dust from getting into it. In about another week I will bottle up the beer and start the carbonation and conditioning process. With a little luck and patience, I should have 2 gallons of drinkable beer in about 4-5 weeks.
