4.4 / 5.037 Reviewsfuggles ipaShipping was fast and kit was in good shape. Easy to brew and good instructions. Definite hop flavor in beer!August 14, 2013fugglesgood kit. If you like fuggles, you will like this. Fuggles has a very earthy/grassy flavor to it...so it's not for everyone. Beer was good and had a good mouthfeel.September 7, 2013fuggles ipaA milder ipa in my book. The fuggles have an earthy/grassy flavor. This kit is not overly bitter. I chose to do most of my hop additions later in the boil. I can really taste those hops.September 19, 2013Smooth Hops flavorI don't care for really hoppy so this was perfect. I have friends that love IPA's and they liked this one. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I would recommend if you want mild hop IPA.September 14, 2014good beerNot an IPA, I don't think, but very good, nonetheless. I used liquid yeast, which I think made all the dfference. This only has a 1.043 G, which isn't really IPA gravity. Could have used some more hops, too, but overall, one of the better beers I have made.March 29, 2015I love the pale aleI love the pale ale and IPA kits, however I am just an occasional BrewerMarch 6, 2016Fuggles IPAItem was well packaged and arrived in good condition. Just brewed today. Waiting to sample/March 7, 2016Looks Good/Smells GoodBrewing beer is like Christmas you never know what your in for until you give a test run! I know this the brews we have done always seem to be at their best on the last few glasses!March 7, 2016Great beer kitGreat flavor at a great priceMarch 8, 2016Not a bad Brit-style aleThis was my first brew and it is just now coming into it's own. I only gave it a week in primary and a week in secondary. I used the Wyeast activator. I bottled them and let them sit for 6 to 7 weeks and they are really starting to taste like something. Not an IPA, but something! I feel like it tastes like a hopped-up ESB, very British. Someone else thought it tasted like a Newcastle, which he said was a good thing. Not bad!March 10, 2010

If you have created an account on the website you should be able to see your orders there in the my account info tab.The ENGLISH pale ale was darn tasty. I boughti t during your 17.76 sale. Cool deal by the way. I do find it a little thin in the middle. is there maybe 4 to 8 ounces of something else you would add to the steeping bag to give it a little more body? Otherwise. Nice little fruity drinker. I am a new devotee to Fuggle hops.BEST ANSWER: A person could add some Carapils malt to it, 8 oz. of it is good for adding body and mouthfeel to a beer. You'd steep it with the specialty grains, or if doing all-grain, mash with the other grain. You could instead use MaltoDextrin powder, about 4 oz would give the same effect. That would just be stirred into the wort near the end of the boil. Some other un-fermentable sugars can also help round out a thin-tasting beer, like a bit of lactose, 4 oz would help and not give much sweetness to the finished beer. I'd consider the Carapils first, and maybe try the other suggestions if that did not add what you want. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
