Good foundation
Not really fair to get too involved in the rating, as I did some doctoring to meet my personal taste and criteria. But it served as a good base.

Does this kit come with yeast?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I just made a batch last week, this is one of my favorite recipes!
can I add fruit for flavor to the boil ?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could, but probably don't want to - most of the flavor will boil off. Either add fresh fruit in a secondary, use a flavor extract, or make a tincture using a neutral spirit for better results.

BEST 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?

what is the ABV on this IPA?
A shopper on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Generally ABV 5.5-6% but with 32oz of light corn syrup I've jacked it up to 10.74% ABV.
How much does this recipe kit weigh?
Pinnie K on Apr 19, 2017
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?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
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.
What is the estimated IBU of this beer?
Nicholas H on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I also added 2 cups of honey and had an S.G. of 1.062
What is the use-by date on the package? How long will it last in storage before I brew it? Thanks!

BEST 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!
How many packs of Wyeast American Ale II 1272 to properly ferment this kit?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: One was enough for my batch. This was a fabulous IPA for the price.
What other hops would go good with this, how much (amount) and when would you add them?
A shopper on Feb 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 2 oz of citra hops, 1 week before bottling.
Does this kit come with bottle caps?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2017
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.
If priming sugar not needed due to kegging; can I get a discount if the priming sugar is not included?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2017
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 Supplies
What temperature should I ferment at?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
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.
How many beers does this recipe yield?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2016
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.
What should I add to this recipe to bump the ABV up a notch? without changing the flavor.
R E on Jun 20, 2016
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 Supplies
No grains in this recipe?
E D on May 11, 2016
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 Supplies
