- Whisk yourself off to a tropical island with a glowing pint of this delicious IPA. Dazzling aromas of mango, pineapple, papaya and grapefruit dominate the nose of this beer, showcased by its everlasting luminous white foam head. The light orange glimmer of the substantial malt bill shines through with subtle notes of fresh bread and warm biscuits, with just enough sweet malt radiance to perfectly balance the vivid hop flavor and slowly fading bitterness.
Kick back, bask in the sun to enjoy this radiantly exquisite ale.

- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 4 answersWhat is the approximate ABV of this beer?Will one packet of dry yeast be enough for this brew? The OG looks high enough to maybe need more.....BEST ANSWER: Hi there, with the starting gravity being 1074, a second pack of yeast would definitely be a good idea. Cheers!What have you seen fermentation wise with this kit, I brewed a permafrost IPA kit and it was on a blow off tube for about 4-5days going crazy, but this kit with more fermentables had about a 1-1.5" Krausen for about 3 days and stopped, very little bubble activity. I am planning to let it sit for longer before I take a gravity reading, but just curious because I expected this one to shoot through the roof. I pitched two smack packs of Wyeast 1056. I activated the packs but could not brew the beer for 2 days looking for a carboy, so I put them in the fridge and took them out to warm up when I started to heat water. Any thoughts?BEST ANSWER: 3-5 Days is pretty normal for most fermentations. Each batch will act differently so it hard to compare fermentations like that. From this, it sounds like nothing to worry about. Wait two weeks in primary and then continue on.Does the kit include everything you need except the priming sugar and yeast? Does it need fast pitch yeast starter?BEST ANSWER: This kit does include all of the sunbeams you will need to make it. The options for priming sugar, yeast and fast pitch are all your choice.
You will need some sort of yeast and priming sugar, but the Fast Pitch is only used if you are making a yeast starter.Can this be converted into a partial mash?BEST ANSWER: As with any kit, we post the recipe online so you could order parts a la carte if you want to do something experimental. 4.5 lbs Goldpils Vienna, 1/2 lb carapils, 1/2 lb flaked oats mashed at about 152 then add the golden lme and dme and corn sugar per the extract instructions.
