4.6 / 5.016 ReviewsMy guests like it best.I brew Stout, Brown Ale and IPA Bitter at the same time to offer a variety to guests. At this point, most like them all, but it seems they like IPA the best.August 2, 2016IPA bitterOf the canned kits, Muntons quality can't be matched . Really good just the way it is so we make this according to the label. Once in a while we add a simple dry hop of 1/2 once of saaz for a Sam Adams like spicy nose. This beer is clean, crisp with no sulfur smell like some of the kits can be. The head is just off white and retains well._x000D_August 11, 2011Makes a decent IPAI use this to make 5 gallons of IPA. It is decent, a bit light on body and hops. I recommend adding a pound or two of malt and some more hops. If the kit were 15 or 16 dollars it would get 5 stars all around, but you can get partial mash IPA kits for 4-5 bucks more, with 6 pounds of malt. The biggest selling point of this kit is the ease of use if you don't do anything extra. For creating a decent brew, so easily and quickly, it gets 5 stars for your time value.December 7, 2012Best of the canned wortsSure beets Mr. Beer, by a long shot. Made a good IPA with this kit, but I also used some specialty grains.December 20, 2012Best Canned Kit I've tried yetThis was my 3rd "hopped" kit I've made. First 2 being Cooper's English Bitter and Lager, while these 2 were drinkable, I'd much preferred a commercial beer. I did steep Crystal Malt 60 Grain_x000D_into this recipe for about 25 minutes along with using DME instead of sugar. The first homebrew I've made that exceeded most Commercial beers I've tasted.January 17, 2013Good flavorI picked up this kit plus 3 lbs. Golden Light DME and an ounce of Citra hops. Added the DME and the hopped extract boiled for about 30 min, used the Citra to dry hop. Really good flavorful, about 6% ABV. Used the kits dry yeast packet. _x000D__x000D_The beer is a little cloudy, I'd recommend using Irish moss, whirlfloc, or boiling longer if you're looking for a clearer beer.May 18, 2013Solid starter but doctor it up a bit!Great beer! Very drinkable. I added amber DME and a pound of dex to bump the alcohol a bit and am glad I did. Came out at 5.55 ABV and overall smooth. Getting great compliments on it. I also used cascade hops in my whirlpool in an effort to bump up aroma, but my chiller crapped out on me and I fear the combination of time and temp added a bit more BU's than I wanted. Ended at 17.2 which isn't bad by any means, but it doesn't have the aroma I was looking for...which is undoubtedly my fault :) Great foam head/retention as well. I'll definitely buy it again and highly recommend it!June 7, 2013muntons ipaA good little beer kit. A small batch of easy to make beer. Just add water and boil. Taste is better than I expected.September 27, 2013Decent base for an IPAI made a fair IPA with it. It's got the bitterness and the base is fine._x000D_Its easy to use and saves 40 minutes of boiling.April 1, 20144 StarI made this to 6 gallons as recommended by the instructions. Used 3lbs of Bries DME Golden Light instead of corn sugar. Initial SG was 1.046, Final SG was 1.013 for an ABV of about 4.5% without taking the priming sugar into account, or about 5% total ABV assuming the priming sugar increases the ABV by about 0.5%._x000D__x000D_I like a hoppy bitter beer so I added 1/2 oz. Magnum hop pellets to the secondary fermenter._x000D__x000D_If you like IPA and want something that's quick and easy to brew this is it. _x000D__x000D_I also use my own recipe for IPA where I boil for 1 hour and add the hops in stages. Using this method definitely results in a better quality IPA but it's a lot more work._x000D__x000D_September 11, 2010
