Dead Ringer™ is a larger-than-life American IPA 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.
April 2011: Same recipe, new name - Dead Ringer™ is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that’s brewed in Michigan. This kit has been a customer favorite for a decade, but this spring we had to change the name after receiving a letter from a lawyer representing the brewery. While the name may be new to our customers, the recipe is exactly the same and is still the same kit that’s close to your hearts.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

If you choose to use a bag, it should be weighted down with glass marbles or stainless steel nuts (make sure they are stainless) to keep it under the surface of the beer. Thoroughly sanitize the bag and any weights before adding them to your fermentor.How hard is it to dry hop?Best Answer: Dry hopping is easy. You can just dump the hops into your fermentor once the initial fermentation is complete.
