RyePA Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains

SKU: U0610

Available for the first time as an extract recipe!
With a reddish-golden hue and a good balance of firm body and lingering bitterness, this brew is a showcase of both hops and grain. The fruity/floral notes of Palisade hops are a perfect complement to the spicy flavor of rye malt.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Rye in the Sky Review by Feral Fish Brewery
I enjoyed this IPA because of the way the rye complimented the hop bitterness. This beer has a little kick to it, but the IPA presence is not overpowering. I added an extra ounce of hops to the dry hopping process and it came out great! (Posted on 3/30/15)
Yet another NB winner Review by Kyle
This is a great beer. The rye and the hops compliment each other well. This is a heavier beer. I would absolutely brew this again. Because of the heaviness, I would tend to drink this in late fall and winter.

I've yet to find a NB kit that was less than excellent. (Posted on 4/8/14)
1.065??? I don't think so Review by Luke
I brewed this today. With over 9 pounds of fermentables I have no idea why NB thinks this kit will produce an O.G. of 1.065?

I ended up with 1.097 even after topping up with tap water more than I normal would. This will be a moderately big IPA. Close to a double in strength. (Posted on 1/3/14)
Heavy-hitting I.P.A. with rich rye complexity! Review by Cason
I love I.P.A.'s so I was excited to brew this one. Turned out great. Straight forward brewing with a dry hop 5 days before bottling. I achieved nearly 7.0 % a.b.v. with strict adherence to the instructions. This beer has big, "heavy-hitting" bitterness up front, with a bold and almost buttery rye body. This one will age gracefully I think and I'm looking forward to storing some for consumption next year... but maybe just a few. (Posted on 11/13/13)
Delicious Review by Anton
This is a great brew. The use of the rye grain gives this beer a unique taste. Immediately brewed again once the first keg was finished. (Posted on 11/13/13)
Great IPA! Review by Shawn
I love IPAs and have brewed at least 3 straight. This is one of the best I've had, homebrew or store-bought! 10 days primary, 2 weeks secondary (5 days dry-hopping) and kegged it. I let it carbonate for a few days before trying a sip and it was out of this world! I let it sit for a couple weeks more and it just got better and better. Hydrometer read over 7% ABV, more than I had expected! Sure enough, one glass will getcha!

I'll definitely keep this one in my cycle of brews and can't wait to make it again! (Posted on 11/4/13)
First Time Review by Kevin
This was my first ever brew. Came out great. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. (Posted on 10/11/13)
Great Rye PA Review by Ed
I added an ounce of my home grown cascade hops to the secondary for one week and it really brightened the hop profile! (Posted on 9/14/13)
Love me some Rye Review by Rowdyskins
I've made this twice now, and have been very pleased each time. Surely this recipe is going into regular rotation for me. (Posted on 7/14/13)
Looking forward to tasting the results! Review by Josh
Just put this one in the bottle. 1 pinch of irish moss in the boil for a little clarity. I wanted to kick it up a notch on the hop end, so used all the Summit & Pallisades hops for bittering, then tossed in .5oz Willamette (whole hops) at the end of the boil, then dry hopped after 1 week with another .5oz Willamette in the secondary. Used 1/3 cup granulated sugar for priming.

Yields as follows:
OG: 1.06
FG: 1.012
6.3% ABV
75 IBUs
47 bottles

Looking forward to tasting the results!

Just kept getting better Review by Paul
It seems like most of these kits are reviewed by someone who was brewing for the first time. This was, in fact, my first brew. The kit was great with directions that were easy to follow. I did the Wyeast option and used a wort chiller before pitching the yeast. I added some irish moss at the end of the boil because I had a friend recommend it. Primary fermentation was 6 days. Secondary was 2 weeks. Bottled and tried the beer at 5 days, 7 days, 10 days. Thought it was pretty good at 14 days so I moved it to the fridge. After 2 weeks in the fridge it was AMAZING. Give it time. I will order again. (Posted on 3/18/13)
Very Smooth Review by Brandon
This is one of my favorite IPAs. Unlike most others it's not in your face with the hop bitterness. The rye malt does a very nice job of smoothing it out. Takes awhile to condition but once it does it is delicious. (Posted on 3/10/13)
My First Rye Brew - Love at first taste Review by John
Best IPA I've brewed in my short brewing career, Great Hops flavor, medium bitterness just all around great. one week prim, one week sec and about 10 days in keg. Took about 3 gallon to work and it was a big hit, even non-IPA fans liked the flavor. Will order again soon, may add an extra oz to the dry hops for even more flavor ABV 5.5% (Posted on 1/15/13)
super tasty Review by michael
Had my RyePA conditioning 3 weeks now and it's definitely a great beer, however, mine is WAY darker than advertised/pictured. I did a full boil with most of the LME added late and the beer still came out a dark rusty brown color, with very dark head (almost coffee colored). Maybe, as some people mentioned, it was older LME? Only time I've brewed with LME, so I can't really go off experience. Definitely a good, unique, beer though! (Posted on 9/8/12)
Unique! Review by Mike
One of the reviews on here scared me into using only 3/4 of the bittering hops since they said it was way too bitter. I suppose I could have used it all though. I will brew this one again for sure! My neighbor and I trade home brews and he usually doesn't like rye beers but he said this was the best one he'd tasted (I'm not sure I ever have before this.) If it doesn't go over that well with the buddies, then that's just more for me! I love it! (Posted on 7/12/12)
Great Beer Review by I.P. Freely
Mine came out darker than the picture, but it was excellent and got better with age. For people that say it's "too bitter", it's supposed to be bitter. It's an IPA dude! (Posted on 6/25/12)
Rye rules Review by Paul
I prefer to assault the wort with a huge pitch of yeast. 2 packs of US-05 in separate starters. It fermented vigorously for 2 weeks. I transfered to the secondary and left it for 8 weeks. 2 weeks before bottling I added an ounce of Cascade to the .5 ounce of Palisades dry hops. Be careful of bubble up. Conditioned 3 weeks. Amazing aroma, smooth hops taste, not too bitter at all. I'm ordering another now. (Posted on 6/20/12)
Very Solid! Review by Tj
I may have gotten some older LME as the color was a bit darker then expected, but beyond that the flavor was spot on. Nice hop flavor augmenting the Rye malt flavor giving it a little kick that really set it off. It will be in my regular rotation. (Posted on 6/18/12)
Good Beer! Review by Hopdevil
I normally brew with liquid yeast but this time I forgot to check the box & got the dry. Turned out fine and the dry yeast is so easy to use. 15 hours in the primary had good action at 66-68 degrees. OG 1.068 FG 1.012 came in kind of big at 7.3% & felt like it too! Hoppy, fruity, creamy head like stout, only a nice redish color. Will brew all grain next time but this partial is good. (Posted on 6/1/12)
Great beer Review by Shizzy
This is a great tasting beer. At the suggestion of the sales guy at the store, I did 1oz of summit at 60, 1 oz of palisade at 15, 1oz of palisade at flame out and then dry hopped it with 2oz of falconer's 7c's. It's a well balanced hoppy beer. I plan to keep this one on rotation.

Too bitter. Licorice and garlicy Review by Bradders
Not good. I like bitter IPAs but this is extreme! Would not recommend. (Posted on 5/1/12)
Too good. Review by Pinched Nerve
This recipe has turned more of my friends into homebrewers than any other. And if you're already a homebrewer, it'll make you believe in God. Be warned though, after that first taste all subsequent recipes will be compared to it, "it's pretty good, but it's no RyePA." (Posted on 4/18/12)
Rye + Bitter= Good Review by Barry Rodelston
Nice meshing of the dryer rye with hoppy bitterness. Gets better the longer it sits in the keg. Will most definitely brew this again for summer. (Posted on 4/12/12)
Great stuff Review by thedoad
Been brewing for around 9 years. This was a great kit and the beer keeps getting better with age. Been about 4 months since bottling. Tasting great. (Posted on 3/27/12)
Just rolls off your tongue Review by Gerry
Like the name, the taste just rolls off your tongue. I saw one reviewer compared it to Sierra Nevada Ruthless. I found that to be a bit skunky but this was much better. Nice and creamy with a good hop finish. Just the way I like it. (Posted on 3/13/12)
Very Bitter Review by Carlsbad Jeff
This was my 4th batch of home brew. The rye intrigued me for some reason, and I usually like IPA, so I went for it. It is pretty bitter. I think the rye contributes some of that. It is similar in taste to commercial rye IPAs like Sierra Nevada Ruthless. I followed the instructions to a T including the yeast starter and secondary fermentation. Fermentation started within 12 hours and then just went nuts. Foam blew out the airlock on my 6 gallon carboy and I had to change the airlock 3 times. After 17 days the fermentation slowed enough to move to the secondary, but it still seemed pretty active there. Although it is not a session beer, it does have an interesting taste and would be good in food pairings. (Posted on 3/8/12)
Good Hoppiness Review by Sneekysneeky
Great beer, I was originally a bit afraid of what the rye would produce, but goes well with the dry hopped taste. Quite hoppy, but not overwhelming. Great balance between hop and malt. Would recommend and will do again. (Posted on 1/22/12)
excellent beer Review by csbaraglia
This was my first brew ever, and it was great! I just kicked the keg, and am having a hard time choking down some store bought beer. (Posted on 1/4/12)
Rye Not? Review by CO Defender
I brewed this kit at the beginning of 9/2011...added one lb of Belgian Candi 15 mins before end of boil, and boiled for 75 mins...after 3 months bottle conditioning it's a lot smoother and with less hop bite than I expected (I was anticipating "Hop Rod Rye"). Although not as hoppy as I anticipated, it's so well balance and smooth. If you're not a total hop-head and want a well balanced alternative...give it a try...I'm going to start training some of my amber ale only friends on different ingredients...this is the beginning of that journey for them. This one's going in the regular rotation. Thanks again NB... (Posted on 12/3/11)
