Brewcraft Beer Recipe Kit / Ultimate Series: Oak Barrel Imperial IPA

Current stock: 0

(BCU170) This homebrew is primarily a bulked-up take on an American-style IPA. It could be called a Double IPA. It has a lot of hops, a lot of malt, and a lot of alcohol! It is a very even tasting beer for an IPA. It is smooth with some clean, crisp impressions. The hops are predominant and layered, as they should be. Along with their hefty bitterness, the hops add citrus flavors and aromas ranging from limes to tropical fruit. This brew has an intense, deep golden color with some full maltiness to match. Additional complexity comes from the addition of an oak wood spirals that adds some toasty vanilla notes to this big brew.

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)
