Description

(Makes 5 Gallons) We recently had a simple, yet exciting idea: What if we brewed the same recipe, used the same yeast, but changed one thing - the flavor, aroma, and dry hop additions using one hop varietal. That way we could take two beers that are close to identical and pick out the differences in just the hop flavors and aromas! And thus, the Single Hop Experiment was born. This recipe is based off of a simple Pale Ale: Ultralight malt extract, Crystal 15L, Magnum bittering hops, and then a single other hop for the rest of the additions. The malt in this recipe is basic and fairly neutral, the bittering clean and consistent, but the flavor and aroma from the late hop additions will vary; sometimes dramatically! Ever wanted to know what your favorite hop really is? Brew a few of these different Single Hop Experiment recipes to find out!

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.

Experimented with some Fresh Cascades
I came upon a 1 lb of fresh cascades and decided I wanted to make a simple IPA so I picked this kit. I also tweaked the recipe and added 8oz of sugar during the last 10 minutes to raise the alcohol content a bit. Instead of the last pellet hop addition, I added my fresh hops and fermented @ 68 degrees for two weeks in the primary. I then used the Columbus hops from the kit to dry hop it in secondary for 1 week. Flavor came out terrific, with a great aroma. hit 5.9% ABV, which was a little lower than I wanted, but it's a great brew.

Best Beer Kit
This kit makes an awesome beer. I did just as the directions say and after 8 other brews this is by far the best beer I have made. If you like IPAs give this one a try.
