Brewcraft Beer Recipe Kit / Premium Series: American India Black Ale

Current stock: 0

(BCP200) This newer style of beer is similar to the traditional India Pale Ale. There are two essential differences that make it an American-black as opposed to a India Pale. First is the color. It is much darker, almost taking on a coffee color. This is mostly due to the additional infuse of Black Patent malt. Not only does this add to its color, but is also gives the malt profile a slight roasted edge. The second difference is the lowering of the hop bitterness. It still has a lot of hoppiness to offer — more so than the average homebrew — but it has been brought back a bit to work in balance with the malt a little more. What you get with these differences is a beer that has an enjoyable, carmel-to-roasted flavor and aroma, with a finish that displays the slightly citrus/floral characters of the hops.

Each Brewcraft recipe kit contains all the ingredients you need to brew 5 gallons of beer in about 2 weeks. That's over 50 bottles of homebrew!... Brewcraft even throws in the bottle caps. These are "partial mash" kits. That means you get the best of both worlds. You get the ease of using malt extract, and you get the richness of using specialty grains. The hops, grains, extract and other necessary ingredients all come pre-measured to produce the optimal wort for the style of homebrew you are making. The folks a Brewcraft have worked hard to make sure that each of these beer recipe kits brew the absolute best beer possible. And just as important, each beer recipe kit comes with complete and specific directions. They assume you know absolutely nothing about brewing beer. They take you by the hand and guide you through each and every step. (Equipment Not Included)
