I started brewing many years ago with buckets and quality extract, never did the Mr Beer thing.
A somewhat sad story has come up, guy retired and his wife bought him a Mr Beer deluxe kit. He kept meaning to brew as soon as they got back from Florida, had a heart attack and died there.
Now the wife has turned to us, 'please make his beer'.
My first thought was to brew some extract the right way and just dump it into the bottles with some priming caps. My wife pointed out that it is likely the woman will come over to see the keg shaped plastic full.
I already threw out the yeast. I have the hopped malt extract and a bag of what I suspect is corn sugar labeled "booster".
Should I just brew a half batch of regular extract and put it in the plastic thing, or try the canned malt? Any tips or things to watch out for? The directions claim the lid is pressure releasing.
