Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, melon, berries, lime and passionfruit drizzle into a faint herbal, piney background. Fresh Squished's sturdy malt foundation of sweet crystal malts and toasty munich concedes to this indulgent use of Citra and Mosaic hops to achieve remarkable balance.

I wish people would write what kind of water and yeast they used but anyway I used distilled from target and s05 yeast. Fermented in primary for 14 days then dry hopped in primary for 7. Kegged and put another ounce of citra and mosaic each t9 cold dry hop whIle carbonating. Wow this stuff tastes and smells awesome! Perfect summer beer will buy again

Fresh Squished IPA is on tap!
Shipment nicely packaged. Brewed this 12-30-15, Kegged 1-28-15. Hit both gravity readings on instructions, used the Safale US-05 Dry Yeast. Active fermentation then racked to secondary. Dry hopping the Mosaic and Citra gives the aroma of the beer a addictive reason to pour another one. If your thinking about purchasing this one just go for it! BK

A must try
I am a huge fan of nearly any IPA but this is the best one I've tried. Good as is and also good if you have extra hops you need to use up. I spiked the dry hop this last time with an oz. of cascade. Well balanced bree and a must try for the IPA fan.

If you love flavorful hops this is a must. I added clementine pulp to mine in the primary and added more plus their skins to the secondary. it's just perfect!

I felt the instructions read very awkwardly and could benefit from an update. Previous kit instructions were much more idiot proof.- An Idiot

Great tasting crisp beer with a hoppy hint of bitter grapefruit
Great flavor exactly what I was looking for. When you can let the hops do the job of a fruit extract it is a win.

Nice and Refreshing
Nice and easy. Followed the directions until the addition of hops and secondary at 2 weeks. I just dumped the extra hops into the fermenter and left everything hanging out for another 3 weeks before filtering into a keg. From the 1st glass I got a nice and refreshing citrus smell. Taste wise there is hints of pine and citrus, nothing overpowering and each are very accommodating to each other. I will be making this one again down the road.

Excellent Aromatic IPA
Brew Info
Brewed: 1/6/17
Dry Hopped: 1/27/17
Kegged: 1/29/17

After two weeks in the keg this beer is awesome! I only dry-hopped for 2 days, which is my preferred technique (as opposed to one-two weeks). Excellent aroma and flavor. It's a very drinkable IPA that I often have to slow down and enjoy before I have too many. haha. The Citra/Mosaic hops are my favorite dry hop varieties so far. Everyone who has tried this beer has been impressed!

Fresh Squished IPA
I'll definitely be brewing this kit again. I brewed it according to the directions with the Safe ale 05 dry yeast. Two weeks in the primary, two weeks in the secondary, dry hopped for a week. The flavor is awesome. Great Citrusy flavor. Everyone who's tried it loves it.

Awesome beer
I brewed this in March and it is one of the best I have ever brewed, which is saying something as I have been an active brewer since 1995 with more than 130 brews in my brew log.

I picked up a six pack of the original of this clone, this kit is better!

Does this come with yeast?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. you can also choose a dry or white labs yeast for your kit. I prefer dry yeast and making a yeast starter before you pitch your yeast into your wort.

Good luck!!

What grains are used in this kit?
A shopper on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Midwest Supplies. The grains in the Fresh Squished are Weyermann Caramunich II. Cheers!
I would like to add this recipe to Beersmith. There are no details on the grain blend. Can someone assist? Weight/type?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Looks like it is just 0.5 lbs of Caramunich III
New to kegging, what psi is suggested for pressurizing?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I usually do 30 psi or so for a couple days then back it down. If you over do it, you will end up with a bad, foamy pour till excess is lost. Better to go slower till your happy then rush it. Just google search and you will find many methods.
Does this come with yeast?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, 1 packet of dry yeast
Does this have more of a Grapefruit or Pineapple taste?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The beer definitely has a grapefruit and mildly hoppy pine flavor and smell. Not a bold IPA that's for sure, but plenty of mild fruit and mellow hop flavors. A very refreshing change-up for one who relishes bold hop flavors which can sometimes overwhelm.
Are the grains already milled or need to be rolled?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The grains were "brew ready" (already milled). This was one of the better kits I have purchased, especially since I wanted an IPA w/ that citrusy taste for summer. Definitely didn't disappoint, and friends really enjoyed.
Do this come with priming sugar?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Midwest ships priming sugar with every kit I've ever used.
Is this too Citric tasting?? Subtle flavor good- just don't like too strong Citric tasting IPA.
J A on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Citra and mosaic are bursting with citrus flavors but the mark of an amazing beer is balance. There is sufficient pine and herbal notes to create a complex hop profile and tosty and full malt flavor provide balance to the hops. A dry finish and medium body make it quite refreshing and begs for a second pint.
I plan on making this for my first batch of summer, any suggestions on what yeast to get with it?
James T H on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Travis,

Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! I would use the Safale US-05 or Wyeast 1056. Both will give the beer a similar flavor profile. I hope that this helps, let me know if you have any further questions!
Can this kit be adapted for use with the MICRO BRU BEER BREWING STARTER KIT AND KEG SYSTEM? Is it be as simple as dividing ingredients by 5? [I've never brewed before and my interest is almost exclusively IPAS. Have never brewed before. I like the idea of brewing small batches (for variety) and I'm not particularly keen on bottling, so I was thinking that starter kit w/tiny keg a good place to start, only I want to make sure I can adapt recipes not specifically designed for gallon kits.]

BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, 5-gallon kits cannot be split up into smaller batches because of the specialty grain blends included.
My beer isn't bad but it ended up with a strong malt smell and after taste that doesn't go well with it. I did a full volume boil, followed the hopping schedule and a 1500 starter using DME. Fermentation went as scheduled. Any idea what caused the off flavor?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That is strange. I did this beer not to long ago and put it in the keggerator and it was one of the best IPA I have done. Turned out great. The only thing that I might think that could happen is if the malt scorched a little bit when boiling and it gave a stronger flavor. That is the only thing that came to my mind but I don't know if that happened to you. Sorry. Really not much help. I would give it another try for sure because me and my friends really loved this IPA.
Hi, can I brew this IPA using the Platinum Pro Beer Brewing Starter Kit?
Would I need any additional equipment?
K E on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We recommend doing a second-stage fermentation, which would require a second fermentor. This is optional, and that would pretty much be it!
Is this recipe available anywhere? Midwest won't ship to me (US territory.)

What is the IBU rating for this Deschutes Brewery Clone?
RYAN D on Dec 22, 2015

This is clone of what beer?
L I on Dec 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fresh squeezed by Deshutes.
Is this a 5 gallon brew kit?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
My beer turned out hazy. There wasn't any irish moss with the kit do you suggest using it? Beer actually kind of looks like a brown ale.
