5.0 / 5.026 ReviewsWonderful IPAThis was the first all grain brew I had ever made and it was by far the best beer I have ever produced. It is a bit more expensive then some of the other kits but it is well worth the extra cost. This was the first time with a home brew that when I tasted this beer it actually seemed like i was sipping a true micro-brew._x000D__x000D_I intended to brew it for my friends, but it was gone in less than a week. _x000D__x000D_I highly recommend this kit._x000D__x000D_Make sure you get the British Ale Yeast.November 23, 2010Professional quality IPAI bought this all grain kit from Midwest and produced one of my best beers to date. Really well balanced bitterness to maltiness w. A complex hop aroma from the dry hopping. It turned out like a beer you would pay good money for at the liquor store, bar, or brewpub. Brought it to a party and received tons of compliments. My og was closer to 1.055 including an addition of 1 pound of dme. Not sure what efficiency they assumed when planning the recipe but it (or they) must have been high. The lower og didn't effect the balance of the beer just made it more quaffable. Highly recommended!December 9, 2010DeliciousI've brewed two batches of this stuff. Both have been delicious and friends that have had some always want more.April 15, 2018Purchased
6 months agoEverything I love about IPAsThis was my first HB recipe. This stuff turned out much better than I expected, went through all 5 gal in 1 cookout lol. Just wish dry hopping wasnt so messy!February 16, 2011Make this beer.2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary with the recommended dry hops. 2 weeks bottle conditioning._x000D_ O.G 1.064, Fg 1.014. (US-05 dry yeast) I didn't use a hop bag in the secondary for the dry hops so probably lost about 1/4-1/2 gallon due to absorption (it is 3 ounces of hops)._x000D__x000D_Awesome hop aroma. If you love citrusy/floral american hops then this is the brew for you. Hard to keep my friends and family away from this one, definitively a favorite at my house. _x000D__x000D_Next time I'm going to ninja brew this one so nobody raids my stash. Only downside is the expense of the kit but the hops just aren't that cheap and Midwest seems to be the only local shop that can keep simcoe in stock. Overall it costs much less than the real thing which goes for $12+ for a 4 pack of 16 oz cans._x000D__x000D_November 25, 2011Very TastyI got this beer for my husband and he loved it. The flavor the color and taste were supurb. He has tried to copy this recipe but our local beer supplier dosn't carry everything it take to make this, so we will stick to buying from Mid West.March 20, 2012Great CloneThis was one of the first clone recipes I ever brewed. It turned out fantastic with a great hop aroma and bitterness. Make sure you use the British yeast to stay true to the original recipe.November 28, 2012Very nice IPAGreat Citrus aroma and taste._x000D_This is way better than the typical IPA kit, these are quality ingredients. I used the 1335 liquid yeast not the dry yeast, so maybe that helped too.January 9, 2013Very good ipaOne of the best Midwest kits. This IPA is outstanding. The dry hopping really adds a nice citrus aroma when pouring. The hop and malt flavor really shine and I'd put this up against a commercially made IPA any day.February 16, 2013Very good IPAThis is the best IPA kit Midwest sells. The hop selection is a nice contrast to all the Cascade hops out there in American beers. This came out exactly as I hoped. Citrusy hop flavor, great aroma, nice mouth feel.March 18, 2013

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersWhat’s the difference in the all grain kit?BEST ANSWER: All grain brewing requires different brewing equipment than extract brewing. The kits are a few dollars cheaper but you need to be able to mash your grain (hold the temp of water and grains for 60 minutes) which means you need a mash-tun, then you need to sparge (rinse) the grains with strike water which requires either a batch of fly sparging setup. After you've done that and have all of your wort in your brew kettle the process is basically the same (you won't steep grains like you do in extract brewing. You will also need to have a brew kettle large enough to handle at least 7 gallons of liquid because you won't add water to get to your final volume. Hope that helps!
