Haze Craze IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Haze Craze IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

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

This IPA recipe is our take on the hazy North East IPA, also known as New England IPA or Juicy IPA, it is one of the fastest growing beer styles in the US.  The style accentuates hop character while maintaining a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  Light in color but hazy due to heavy dry hopping, yeast selection, as well as additions of oat and wheat .  Low in bitterness with a huge hop character due to hop-bursting, this beer will satiate even the biggest hop head.

The North East IPA has become popular nationwide thanks to breweries like Tree House Brewing, The Alchemist, Hill Farmstead and Grimm Artistanal Ales.  After my first taste of this delicious style, I knew that brewing it at home was a must.

Neil T on Mar 17, 2020
I must have screwed something up. My original gravity reading came in at 1.030!! I pitched the yeast anyway, which took off around 16 hours. It's been about three days and my brew looks like a milky mess! This is the first time this has happened. I use an online mash and sparge calculator for my water and temp levels. All my temps were good, I'm thinking maybe I used too much water? Any input is appreciated! Thanks.
Rick Hausauer on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rick - This is unfortunate, which brewing calculator did you use?
Recipe says dry hop days 3-7 and 7-10.. does that mean to dry hop For from day 3 until day 7? Or dry hop for 3-7 days?
Douglas w Tripp on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've made this beer four times now. It's a favorite in my extended family. I have tried it both ways. It works fine either way, but I think the the beer has a juicier, slightly less hop forward finish if you use the later approach. I consider day 1 the day when fermentation actually starts. May take a day or two. I let it ferment from day 1 to 3, then add the first dry hop in the primary from days 3 to 7. Then rack to secondary and add the second dry hop from days 7 to 10. Also, I don't normally use strainer bags, but in this case, I find it helps. I keg and, with all of the hop additions, I find it easier to get a clean beer into the keg. Hope this helps. Haze Craze is a delicious beer. Enjoy!
What is the preferred yeast for this brew?
Bryan Ferguson on Mar 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used White Labs WLP095 Burlington Ale Yeast and got great results You could substitute some of the English style ale yeasts and get similar results. You have to make a starter.
Anyone try and spike it with 1lb of corn sugar to get the ABV to around 7?
James Burns on Sep 12, 2018

How do I get the egg yolk color that some people are getting? What type of yeast are you using?
James Cruz on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used WY1318 - Wyeast London Ale III and do not use irish moss or whirlfloc tablets, color was spot on and very hazy.
How do I get the egg drop color that some people are getting? What yeast are you using?
James Cruz on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Water chemistry has an impact on the softness and mouth feel , I added gypsum and calcium chloride to the water and for yeast I use wy'east London ale 3 1316 cheers!
What's the best fermentation temperature for it? I'll be using Wyeast London Ale III (PS I'll be using the Extract version but I can't ask questions there for some reason)
James Cruz on Aug 4, 2019

learn how to dry hop
It's a perfect kit if you want to learn how to dry hop. It was my first time dry hopping into my glass fermentor. Getting the mesh bag filled with the hops into the narrow neck of my glass carboy was a challenge, but who doesn't like a little challenge. It was a great experience and the beer turned out amazing. I now brew this in a Speidel fermentor since the addition is much easier. I have brewed 9 batches so far and its one of my favorites. I will keep buying and experimenting with this one.

Excellent Kit
Awesome kit... I used Imperial A38 Juice, I split the Warrior hops at 60 minutes and 30 minutes instead of all at 60 minutes. First dry hop addition on day three... second on day seven.... crashed on day 10...kegged on day 12. Beer has been in the keg for a week... but it's incredible... a really good example of the style. Color, taste, texture, flavor... it's all spot on. I'll be brewing this again soon cause this keg won't last. Good luck and enjoy !!!

Great Hazy
I am an experienced garage brewer but this is my first try at a hazy NE style IPA. I'll often use a kit for a first try. Came out perfectly. Hazy and citrusy. Turned out to be a favorite: I love this and my friends are saying this is a great beer. Example: I have a good friend who claims she doesn't like most Pac NW IPAs, but this she loves! While deviate from the kit? I will buy again.

Perfect Hazy Base
My first time brewing a Hazy. Didn't know where to start so I ordered this kit. I don't normally buy kits but in this case I'm glad I did. The malt profile to me was perfect. I did pump up the hops little. An once each late addition and dry hop. I did this BIAG all grain and was not that efficient so I added about a half pound of Pilsen extract toward the end to bump up gravity. I did a starter with Barbarian (only 24 hr.) and the ferm started quicker than typical. Very tasty beer!! Will do again and add a little more hop but I wouldn't mess with the malt profile at all!! 6.3%. Would post a pic but sadly it's all gone.
