Dead Ringer® IPA BIAB All Grain Recipe Kit

SKU# U1535

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

Dead Ringer® is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that’s brewed in Michigan. 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 over a decade.

All kits yield 3 gallons and include blended grain malts, hops, yeast, and complete instructions.
All-grain kits use malted grain as the base for the finished beer; in addition to familiarity with basic brewing techniques and the equipment for fermenting, siphoning, and bottling, you will also need equipment for brew-in-a-bag all-grain brewing.

Keeps Getting Better!
So I made this the first time, first all grain, first BIAB ever back in May and I could not believe how amazing it turned out. This time I refined a few things as I ended up with too much wort the first time around.

This time I ended up a little under 3 gallons, but topped off and left a little room for sediment. Dropped a small portion of whirfloc in during the boil which really helped to clear it up.

Fermentation I did primary about 3 1/2 weeks, then a week in the secondary dry hopped for 4 days. I start to feel anything longer than 4-5 days is really just going to add that grassy taste when the hops have already let our their oils and aromas.

Force carbed and was ready in a few days. This was for my fiance's bday party. Keg ended up getting completely finished in less than a week, the majority of it drank during the party. Everyone said it tasted like a 'real beer', and compared it to Stone IPA. I was lucky enough to have a Two Hearted Ale to try with it, very similar beer! Great Job!
Whirfloc, as well as cold crashing and a hop strainer bag for the dry hopping make it clear up!

Best I've brewed Yet
This 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.

Nice IPA
Brewed 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.

Best IPA from a non IPA guy
I very selectively drink IPA's. My go to styles are Belgians, Scotch ales and stouts. When I do drink IPA's I go for DF 90 minute or occasionally dirt wolf. This IPA is very drinkable and smooth. I would say its like 90 minute with a slight edge. I plan on re-ordering the full 5 gallon kit.

First BIAB - Excellent
First time using BIAB. Very happy with the results! Followed the recipe except used 1 oz citra + 1 oz simcoe for dry hops rather than the provided centennial. 10 days primary, 10 days secondary. Yielded 3.5 gallons. Delicious!

Surprisingly 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!

Best 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!!

Do I need the yeast starter for this?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When I brewed this I did not use a starter and it turned out great (it was my first brew). A starter wouldn't hurt though if you have the time to make one. Just my two-cents worth.
Does the mesh bag come with the kit?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it does not, unfortunately. You must buy seperately (available on this site), but I have found it useful many of times so a worthy buy.
If 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!
Paul S on Jan 6, 2016
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.
Maybe I missed it but I did not see a FG target for this recipe. What should I shoot for?
Joe M on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine came out at 1.016, giving me about 6.3%.
Priming Sugar - should I use 3 oz sugar for BIAB? (first time doing BIAB - used to the 5 gal. kits)
A shopper on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That sounds appropriate, perhaps on the high side considering a calculator I use. Generally when I buy these 3 gallon BIAB kits is this calculator: http://www.northernbrewer.com/priming-sugar-calculator
I recommend using 65-70 as your beer temp even if you cold crash (chilling beer in fridge overnight to make it clearer). I cold crashed a batch and reduced the sugar in one of my batches and the carbonation was too low. So simply use standard room temp as the temp for the calculator.
