I thought the centennial hops in the dead ringer kit looked a little old/not fresh. When you run the $19.99 sale do you just get rid of old merchandise?

great beer and packaged very well
I live in Vietnam and often items as you can guess arrive here pretty much destroyed often. Northern Brewer boxed everything nicely and everything arrived in contact. Not a single grain was spilled. Oh and I forgot to mention the Caribou Slobber was great.

Great American IPA
Dead Ringer is an ideal IPA style beer with an exceptional balance between malt and hops. If you are like me (hophead) you will find this to be a perfect beer to embellish on. I will occasionally add an ounce of additional dry hop to boost the nose even further.

Great kit
Have brewed this one 3 or 4 times and it just keeps getting better. Very close to the real thing. Highly recommended!

Easy as pie
This was an easy brew. I like the option to have the grains I not crushed. This lets me brew in a much larger window of time. Plus everything is in the kit.

just to clarify. For dead ringer ipa boil additions. Is it a 60 minute total time boil putting in centennial right at the start of the boil, and than add centennial when you have 20 minutes left and again the last 5 min. of the boil. In fact, are all your kits set up like this.

BEST ANSWER: Yesi followed the deadringer ipa As per instructions . I dont always brew this way , i mix it up some partial grain, some extract. And when the weather gets nice the garage isnt too cold i do all grain in the garage. Partial and extract i can do in the house in the winter
I'm new to all grain brewing and my question is, how do I determine the amounts of water required for all grain, 5 gallon batch? I didn't see that detail in the recipe.
R I on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
there is a formula floating around that I have used to tell you the minimum mesh water required. If you take the weight of the grains in lb and multiply it by 1.1 you get the quarts of water needed. So divide that by 4 and you have gallons.
In my experience this is usually the minimum amount you want.
You need to know that the grains will soak up a lot of the water you out in your mesh ton. I usually use about 4 to 5 gallons of water to begin. This gives you plenty of room to add water to increase you wort temperature to 170 F at the end of the mesh out. And it leaves space to do a nice rinse when you have drained our wort to get the residual sugars I the grains.
Sorry for the late reply but I hope I could help.

Is yeast included in the base price of the kit, or do you have to purchase it at an additional cost?
B H on Apr 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The base price of the kit is $41.51. Yeast and priming options are selected by default to bring the kit to a total of 46.99. The yeast and priming options can be changed, and this will alter the price of the kit as a whole.
Since it recommends using a starter yeast, would you use the US-05 or buy one of the liquid yeasts offered? Thanks
D E on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dean,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! You can do a yeast starter with either the dry or liquid yeast. Both liquid and dry yeast will give basically the same flavor profile and attenuation. Personally I would just go with the safale dry yeast!
In IBrewmaster, The all grain recipe has an OG of 1.053 with 11 lbs of 2-Row and the recipe that comes with the kit showing 1.064 OG. Adding 2.5 lbs of 2-Row gives me the 1.064 OG in IBrewmaster. Why does the kit not come with 13.5 lbs of 2-Row. I do get the OG of 1.053 with the 11 lbs of 2-Row from the IBrewmaster recipe. Is this a typo error on the recipe?
Chris R on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: First time I brewed this beer I had 1.053. Second time I brewed it I hit 1.064. I did not add anything new, but by the second time my efficency had gone up. Course I brew for the taste and this is a good recipe, so if my numbers are off a bit I dont get stressed, after all this is suppose to be fun.
What is the F.G. target on this one and which liquid yeast do you recommend and why? (Learning)
D A on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The FG should be in the range of 1.008-1.014. As for yeast, we recommend either the Wyeast 1056 or WLP001 California Ale yeast from White Labs. The reason is that both of these yeasts ferment pretty cleanly, lend almost no yeast character or flavor, and let the malt and hops (especially the hops) drive the beer.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Charles
