5.0 / 5.03 Reviews110% AmazingThis brew is so good, that I'm trying to decide if I should charge my friends to drink it. I used the Omega DIPA yeast, which gave it a bit of a peach flavor,along with the citra hops , and you have one amazing beer. Beautiful color as well. One of the best beers I have ever tasted, let alone brewed! Go ahead order it,....I dare ya.

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersI ran the recipe into BeerSmith and came up with much higher numbers than the recipe sheet. OG is 1.085 (9.2% ABV) and IBU is 100. The recipe sheet has the OG at 1.074. Dropping the corn sugar provided in the kit brings it down to the target OG, should I omit it?BEST ANSWER: I have brewed this twice now including the corn sugar. First time I got 1.070. I started with about 6 3/4 gallons to boil.
Ended up with a little under 5 gallons in primary. After dryhopping in secondary ended up with about 4.5 gallons at 1.012 FG. Second time I just wanted to see where I would end up if I started with 7 gallons preboil. 1.066 OG. this time. Ended up with 5 gallons exactly in primary. Not done fermenting yet. I used the Omega DIPA yeast both times.I purchased this kit and have two questions.
1- What is the additional equipment I need?
2- I noticed there is no bag for the grains. The other kits I purchased had them in a bag.This being my fourth attempt at homebrewing. I'm a bit of a novice.BEST ANSWER: The advanced equipment is all grain brewing equipment. If not sure what all grain means or the equipment needed, you want to go with the extract versions of our recipes.What is the abc of the swig of sunbeams?BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. We purposely do not put the ABV on our kits, because people can sometimes get upset if they didn't get that number, even if the beer tastes great. However, you can figure it out by the style of yeast you plan on using and it's attenuation rates of that particular yeast. Cheers!Hi I completed my brew. It has been fermenting for 9 days now. Still getting bubbles slowly about one every 6 seconds. Completed a gravity check and it at 1.043. So when fermenting is complete it should be around 1.010? Do I wait till then before transferring to another container? And is that pretty normal for the gravity to be that high at this point? OG was 1.067 .BEST ANSWER: My personal opinion, but for me I usually wait a bit longer for fermentation to really slow down before transferring, but its all personal preference. Based on your readings, that yeast still has some work to do. How much did you pitch? If liquid, did you make a starter? This beers gravity is high enough I'd probably make a starter so you have enough cells to get through all those sugars.
