Dead Ringer® is a larger-than-life American IPA beer kit with a hop aroma so thick you can almost see it. American base malt and crystal malt create the big body and supporting grainy sweetness, while charge after charge of 100% Centennial hops deliver pronounced bitterness with a dominant citrus aroma and flavor. In the glass you get a pale amber color, hop intensity and malt density - substance with the soul of a session beer. This IPA recipe kit has been a customer favorite for a decade
Dead Ringer® is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that’s brewed in Michigan.
Same recipe, new format - We now offer it to you in a convenient stove top BIAB format. The recipe is exactly the same and is still the same kit that’s close to your hearts - just a little smaller.

- 4.9 / 5.09 ReviewsBest I've brewed YetThis was my first BIAB attempt after going from 4 Mr. Beer kits, then 4-5 gallon extract kits and this was the best beer I've ever made. Friends have said most homebrews have some sort of twang to them, but this beer tasted like it was straight from a brewery. I ended with an extra gallon of wort, so abv was lower and lighter body, still tasted amazing and I'll be making again with some adjustments.May 3, 2016Nice IPABrewed this one a couple months ago and now drinking. Very nice IPA. Will most likely become a regular in my brewery, only in the larger 5 gallon batches.May 31, 2016January 11, 2016Best one yetOk, this is a great beer. Best one I've brewed yet.March 26, 2016Faster than expectedEverything was packed securely and it arrived a day earlier than they saidApril 15, 2016Surprisingly easy and exceptionally tasty!As a huge fan of IPAs, I was excited to see NB bring one of my all time favorites in extract brewing to the BIAB arena. This was my first BIAB venture so I wasn't sure what to expect, but WOW! this brew is as good if not better than the extract version. I will be ordering another kit soon because the only drawback is that 3 gallons doesn't last too long! Buy..brew..and enjoy!November 10, 2014Best IPA I've brewed!This beer turned out fantastic! Super easy to brew. 2 weeks in primary then racked to secondary and dry-hopped for 1 week. FG @ 1.016 for a 6.2% beer. Will buy the all grain next time just so I can have 5 gals!!March 10, 2015So far so good.Kit arrived as expected, brewing went well, Fermentation was agressive 24hrs after pitching and then dropped off after 3days(Using dry yeast).Still in fermenter will probably bottle in a week or so so far looks and smells delicious!September 22, 2016
- Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 2 answersIf I wanted to brew a larger batch, could I just buy two of these kits and follow the instructions as is but just doubling the ingredients (i.e. the hop schedule, water volume, etc...)? I have a 15.5 gallon brew pot and the FastFerment conical fermenter (7.9 gallons). Thanks in advance!BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. Just think about chilling and how long your hops are going to stay in contact with hot wort and the resulting impact on bitterness.
Making a yeast starter would probably be even more important.
Haven't done it... I use the BIAB batches for my older gear and for quick brew days. I use my newer 15 gal kettle for "full-size" batches.
