Not bad
Was my first time kegging and let me tell you people thought we were at a bar. Good tasting beer and lacks that home brew taste somewhat.

It is fun to squeeze 2 ounces of leaf hops into the secondary. I dry hopped it for a month and half. Best beer yet. Brew it!
April 15, 2010
There is no mystery as to why this is Midwest's most popular kit. It is easily the best beer I've brewed out of my first first 10 attempts. I can't wait to try this one again and all of their other IPAs!

Excellent IPA
Just took a final gravity measurement and sample before cold crashing and it is wonderful. Nice balanced hop bitterness and a good abv that gets your attention._x000D__x000D_OG 1.078 _x000D_FG 1.014_x000D_ABV ~8.25%_x000D__x000D_I used a 1500mL yeast starter (no stir plate) with a 16 day primary and a 2 month secondary (hard to wait). _x000D__x000D_Somehow either my dry hops were lost or not shipped, because I didn't find any on brew day :-(. Either way I am very pleased with the hop balance, but I would maybe like a little more hop nose that the secondary hopping would have added. _x000D__x000D_I'm gonna add this to my rotation._x000D__x000D_I highly recommend sitting on this and giving it a longer secondary. I'm going to drink these slow out of the keg and also bottle a few to taste over the year._x000D__x000D_Cheers!

Why Buy Beer?
This was my second batch of homebrew, and it's just as good- and in many cases BETTER- than anything I've bought before. I'm drinking it after 2 weeks of bottle conditioning, and it's so good, I don't think it's going to last to four weeks like others have recommended.

great brew
Very smooth and a easy drinking beer. Good hop content but not over powering and a smooth malt flavor. Will brew this one again. _x000D_

Don't waste it by drinking it too early!
This was the first kit I ever made and it turned out INCREDIBLE. Like I said �?���� don�?���t waste it by drinking it too early! Leave it in the bottle for at least 3 weeks before you try it. It was so good after 2 weeks that I had to have a few. After 3 weeks it was even better, and now after 4 weeks I cannot believe how good it is. It is very well balanced, has a rich and malty feel and hoppiness increases with bottle conditioning. Mine came out at 8.25% ABV so it packs a punch on that side as well.

Most hop flavor of my home brew to date.
Delicious. Lots of hop flavor. Good Aroma. Make sure to not use a car boy for the dry hopping. Huge headache to get the hops back out.

Great hop flavor
A great kit. A very easy drinker for the style. Plenty of hop flavor but without being overpowering._x000D__x000D_Using a carboy for secondary might be difficult, I wasn't sure if i would be able to pack the muslin bag down though the neck, and even less sure i would be able to get it out, but if i just funneled the hops in i was sure they would just float on the surface. My solution was to cut the bag into sections (tying off both ends) and loosely packing them to the size of a baseball. and weighting them with stainless steel washers. This made the hops easy to get in, and not terribly difficult to get out with the help of a cloths hanger.

What is the difference in the yeast? Getting this as a gift and want to be sure it's right
A shopper on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: US-05 and Wyeast 1056 (as well as White Labs WLP001) are all the same yeast strain, commonly referred to as the "Chico" strain. The only major differences are the price, and their ease of use. US-05 is a dry yeast, which makes it less expensive, and it can be rehydrated in water or pitched directly into your fermenter. 1056 is a liquid yeast, which is more expensive, and will likely require a yeast starter, depending on your gravity.

Some will argue that a liquid yeast is more "pure" than dry, but liquid yeast packs typically contain fewer cells than dry yeast packs, hence the need for a yeast starter.
How long will the ingredients stay fresh before brewing?
K Y on Nov 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The grains are the limiting factor for me. I always try to complete the brew within 6-8 weeks. I brewed an all grain batch 6 months after purchasing ant it was very good. Get it done when you can, it will be good!
Is it okay to use 2 gallons of water to mix and complete all steps in brewing and then add the additional 3 gallons in the cooling phase prior to aeration?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn’t try it, there is also evaporation to take into account, the instructions say at least 2.5 I usually use about 3.5 to 4 gallons. I also order extra hops and double them while brewing then dry hop with an ounce of cascade leaf hops and it turns out great.
Why is this beer darker than advertised?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Different brewing methods can create slight color variations. Extract typically results in a slightly darker finished product due to the condensing process. To minimize the darkening you can add some of your extracts later in the boil.
How many gals do you get out of a Kit .????
D A on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All the regular Extract and All-Grain kits are 5-gallon kits. The only exceptions are the one-gallon Micro-bru kits, those are clearly marked as one-gallon kits though. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
