2 months agoVery good for the price. I added some specialty grains and extra hops for a really good IPA under 30 dollarsAugust 28, 2018Purchased
2 months agoExcellent!Turned out really good. I dry hopped for 5 days with citra and kegged it last week. It won’t last long.June 21, 2018Purchased
4 months agoGreat by itself or as a base recipe.Not a bad IPA. I’m still exploring the style but it’s very drinkable. I think the IBUs land on the low end for IPAs (low 40s?). I didn’t dry hop but I’d be curious to see what it adds. Definitely a great kit as it is or to experiment with. Also, this is my first Simply Beer kit sans steeping grains but it’s fine without them. Perhaps another place to experiment.May 26, 2018Purchased
7 months agoSimple IPAThis is an easy to brew recipe. This kit turned out super. The price is great and lets me feel at ease when wanting to try some new things. I thought this would be subpar kit when I first bought it but was really proven wrong.May 23, 2018Purchased

MikeWhen do you add the corn syrup to bump up the abv? thanksBEST ANSWER: noWhat other hops would go good with this, how much (amount) and when would you add them?BEST ANSWER: 2 oz of citra hops, 1 week before bottling.What temperature should I ferment at?BEST ANSWER: The yeast strain that comes with the kit is fairly simple normal room temperature should works fine (68-76 deg F). I also recommend buying some extra hops for different additions during your brew and if you want to heighten your gravity try a partial grain process by steeping some extra grains. That is my normal method when using the simple kits and I have had good results.what is the ABV on this IPA?BEST ANSWER: Generally ABV 5.5-6% but with 32oz of light corn syrup I've jacked it up to 10.74% ABV.Does this kit come with bottle caps?BEST ANSWER: No this kit does not come with caps, but I can say that the great taste of this kit is well worth the small price you will pay for a packets of caps. This kit and the simple cream kits are my favorites and easy to brew.What is the use-by date on the package? How long will it last in storage before I brew it? Thanks!Beer. Simply Beer - IPABEST ANSWER: I typically buy these kits 3 or 4 at a time and when I get the package, first thing I do is put the yeast packs in the fridge and the hops in the freezer. Both the yeast and the hops are said to be good for up to two years if unopened. I keep the boxes in the basement on the concrete floor, it is my understanding that as long as you keep the extract in a temp controlled area (60-70F) they should be fine for up to a year, some web sites even say 2 years. Happy Hopping!Was Was Thinking Of Bittering with the Cascade and my own Yakima Magnum....and adding a Bit of Challenger the last 10 and Dry Hop With a Few More Ozs of Cascade.... Does This Sound Like a Decent Mix or a Disaster..?Beer. Simply Beer - IPABEST ANSWER: A lot depends on the style of beer you are making. Are you making and English bitter, American lager, or what? When I first started brewing I randomly mixed American and European hops, but the results were often clashing. Challenger is a great hop, but I would stick to using it with English hops such as East Kent Golding, Brewer's Gold UK, Herald, Northdown or Columbia. If you aren't going toward the English bitter profile (as your use of Cascade and Magnum would indicate, then stick with American hops. How about using the Magnum for bittering then getting a nice grapefruity finish with a fair amount of Citra?How many beers does this recipe yield?BEST ANSWER: Depends on the size of bottle. A 5 gallon batch will usually get you a yield of 48-54 12 Oz. bottles, depending on losses from transfers and such. I usually increase my water a bit to actually brew 6 gallons and end with around a gallon total loss.How much does this recipe kit weigh?BEST ANSWER: This kit, in the box with all ingredients, weighs between 8.25 and 8.5 lbs. Hope that helps.What is the ibu (bittering unit) of the simply beer IPA?BEST ANSWER: I have it at 47 or so with a bitterness ratio of 1.00. The exact answer depends on the freshness of the hops. Was a good beer.How many packs of Wyeast American Ale II 1272 to properly ferment this kit?BEST ANSWER: One was enough for my batch. This was a fabulous IPA for the price.If priming sugar not needed due to kegging; can I get a discount if the priming sugar is not included?BEST ANSWER: These ( amazingly-priced ) kits are sold just as they are, if the sugar is not needed for bottling, we suggest tossing it in the boil for a tiny boost of ABV, instead. We would not be able to do custom kits for some orders that omit a component from the beer kit, sorry. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWhat should I add to this recipe to bump the ABV up a notch? without changing the flavor.BEST ANSWER: Adding a pound of DME is a great way to boost the ABV without changing the character of the brew, I'd recommend that. Go with "gold" or "light" or "pilsen" DME, add it with 15 minutes left in the boil. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesNo grains in this recipe?BEST ANSWER: No, this particular kit has no specialty grains. The American Wheat and the Cream Ale also have no specialty grains. They are not always needed, depending on the beer and the malt extract used in the recipe. -Mike W, Midwest Suppliesdose it include yeastBEST ANSWER: Vincent,
