Columbus IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)
Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

(Makes 5 gallons) A great IPA recipe that features the high oil content Columbus hop in the finish. Lots and lots of aroma combined with very evident hop flavor.  The Columbus hop flavor and aroma help work to soften the apparent bitterness. The malt and grain remains the same as the American IPA recipe.

Excellent beer at an excellent price!
Second time brewing on Grainfather. Dry hopped first batch with 1 oz Columbus but this time going with the recipe. Very good IPA with plenty of body and hop bitterness. Will be a regular brew.

Awesome kit
Did BIAB - mashed at 154 for 60 mins, followed everything as it is, ended up at 1.059 OG, used US-05, fermented between 64-66F, 13 days in primary then kegged + dry hopped with 1 oz Columbus. Wow this clean, citrusy and refreshing. Just the right amount of bitterness and hops. Those that are non hopheads ended up pouring pint after pint. I can see this being the perfect summertime beer. I’m now a huge fan of the columbus hop.

This is a great IPA... The only thing I will do differently next time is a dry hop addition. Everyone that I have shared it with has been very impressed.

Good stuff
Second time brewing this recipe. Didn't make any additions or changes. Simple to brew and great results both times. An easy drinking smooth and non- overpowering IPA that was enjoyed even by my Bud drinking friends.

Bench mark IPA
I recently had a neighbor ask me if there was grapefruit in the beer. I've brewed this beer several times and it is becoming a bench mark IPA for me.

Great Beer!
10 days in primary. Fermented around 60? ambient which kept primary at like 62?. Followed hop schedule and mashed at 152? for an hour. Boiled 60 mins. Dry hopped with 1 oz nugget for 2 days. Kegged for less than a week and all ready delicious. At 2 days with some force carbing it was good, but now a few days later it's great. Used us-05 and fined keg with gelatin. Will jump to a 3 gallon keg and beer gun some to save. Good stuff

Outstanding, my new favorite IPA
After a year of 1 gallon all grain I switched up to 2.5 gallons (got an excellent 3-gallon ported carboy from MoreBeer), this was the first recipe I tried (2 batches from 1 kit). I'm really happy about how this turned out, I used the recommended Safale yeast and didn't make any alterations, and the beer is truly excellent! Great aroma and bitterness, just how I like it. I did a taste test between this, Sam Adams IPA, Founders All Day IPA, and Two Roads Honeyspot IPA, this was actually my favorite of the four. Will definitely be brewing this as my go-to IPA going forward.

Really Good Pale Ale / IPA
When I bought this, I was a little nervous about 1) a beer with 1.5 lbs of crystal malt and 2) an all columbus beer. I mashed at 154 and let it cool down to 148. I used a combination of US-05 and Imperial Pub yeast. I am happy to report that this kit makes an outstanding beer. Excellent full body and nice citrusy hops flavor and aroma. The beer is well balanced with moderate bitterness that is not harsh. It is not overly sweet. High marks.
