American IPA Home Brewing Kit - Extract Beer (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

(Makes 5 gallons) An IPA is like a Pale Ale on steroids - take a pale ale and add more malt, more grain, and more hops. Our version, with 9 lbs of malt extract and 5.5 oz of Magnum and Cascade, is big. IPA is drinkable right away but gets better with 1-2 months of aging, as the alcohol mellows and the different flavors mix together.

Estimated Original Gravity:1.058-62
SRM (Color Range: 10
IBU's: 81-86
Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 6%

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet. For further details, please reference the conversion chart below.

American IPA
this recipe was easy to use and has produced a brew I am proud to have made ,drink and serve!!

Robust, refined, big and bold yet utterly drinkable, this AIPA delivers sweet and malty goodness with a stern hoppy backbone.
Morebeer never fails.

Great recipe which produced a very true IPA. Beer is right at a month old now and seems to have reached peak flavor. I have brewed morebeer pliny clone 3 times now and it has been my go to brew. This one may become the next goto. I added about 1 1/2 pounds of light dried malt extract and dry hopped with 2 ounces of whole cone cascade. This raised my og to 1.072.I double pitched safale 05 dried right on top of the cooled wort. It has a some alcohol on the nose. Pretty sure this one will be bought again soon.

Great Tasting IPA
The profile on this beer is OUTSTANDING. I normally brew all-grain but was playing catch up on my brewing so I opted to give this a shot. End result was a great tasting IPA that was very easy to drink. All my fellow brewer friends loved it as well.

Great kit
Think this was our second brew, came out nice. Not really hoppy (easily remedied) , but it worked as a summer beer as is. For what it's worth, my initial tasting notes say: tasting was good and Carmel/malty with slight bittering hop flavor (should probably be considered an Ale not an IPA), but as it warms the magnum hops come forward.

Satisfies this hop head
This beer is easy to brew and the results are fantastic. Great hoppy flavor and this always goes fast.

Great Recipe
This is a great IPA. I added a little extra hops and changed up the timings to modify it. I highly recommend it. I ordered two more!

A pleasant surprise!
Not thin or watered-down as you might suspect from the term American in the product title.

Great IPA
The first batch that I have brewed on my own. I used a 3 1/2 gallon brew pot. This IPA turned out awesome! I will be brewing this one again for sure.
April 16, 2014
Very pleased!
This is the 2nd IPA I have brewed, and it is my favorite beer I've brewed to date. I'm a hophead, so I added a little extra Chinook and Citra hops during the boil and for dry hopping. Just purchased my second kit. I have a feeling I'll be brewing this for years to come. Well done, MB!!
