Product Details

Your inner cynic says: "Wait, wait ... isn't this just an Imperial Stout?" Well, let's answer your inner cynic's question with another question: "Isn't a Dunkelweizen just a darker, maltier Hefeweizen?" The answer is both yes and no. There you go, inner cynic. Incubated in West Coast craft breweries and brewpubs (the same folks who brought you American Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, and Imperial IPA – they weren't always established styles, either!), these hefty concoctions throw all pretense at subtlety right out the window.

Full-bodied, hop-bitter, and boozy, this beer is compelling enough to both fuel and quash the argument of its stylistic integrity, and it goes great with a blue-cheese stuffed sirloin burger or steak.

Fantastic first home brew!
I bought this Black IPA kit for my first venture into home brewing. I'm telling you now, if you're contemplating getting into home brewing this is the kit you need. It is an absolutely delicious beer! Be warned though, when the first hops addition hits the boil you'll be hooked! If I may offer one piece of advice be patient with it. I left it in primary for four weeks and bottle conditioned for another four. Eight weeks sounds like a long time to wait for your first brew. But believe me it's worth it! The five gallon kit will be a must buy when I upgrade my brewing setup!

Best I've had from Northern
If you like "Black IPAs," this is top notch.

It sat in the fermenter for only 14 days, in the bottles for 20.

Freakin' fantastic.

Getting ready to bottle
The brewing process went well. Fermentation complete. Very easy to follow directions with everything I needed in the box. Bought a dead ringer kit as well and will crack open the first bottle next weekend

Great Dark Ale with IPA and coffee overtones
my 3rd attempt at home brewing and first with Northern Brewing. I am very pleased with the product, the support, and the instructions included. I will be bock...er back!I did primary fermenting for 2 weeks then another 3 in the bottle. I must have been reading my hydrometer incorrectly because I came our with approx 9% ABV. But is IS VERY tasty! Great color, just the perfect amount of carbonation. Not as hoppy as I would like but a DELICIOUS dark Ale. I will most definitely brew this again!

Good hoppy IPA
Good beer. For all the hops added it not very bitter. Very dark with a taste between coffee and chocolate (without the sweetness).

If I bottle this (or any of your 1 gallon kits) in 12 oz bottles, about how many bottles will I need?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I usually get 9 bottles but have 12 cleaned ready in case of breaks spills etc
What is the average ABV? Actually I do not see that listed on any of your beers
K E on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I only recently started calculating ABV over the last 2 brews. I never did one for the Black IPA. Since that is an extract, I imagine around 5 or 5.5 but I really have no good idea. It was a real good beer, very hoppy.
how long should i bottle ferment this beer?
M A on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Two weeks should be enough time to properly carbonate the bottles.
Why does this batch of Black IPA taste like burnt caramel?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A kit like this has a lot of roasted grain flavor, that will give some bitterness. It's also possible that you had some scorching after you had added the extract to your kettle. If it's not stirred in completely, some can drop to the bottom of the kettle and burn a little from the heat. Always be very careful to completely stir in the extract, and it's best to move it off the burner while this is done.
I do not have a Hydrometer and was wondering what the abv of this brew is?
K I on Nov 21, 2015

The final ABV will depend on how long you allow it to ferment and the exact conditions of your brewing setup. So

it's hard to say what the exact alcohol content will be. However

Black IPA's typically have a relatively high ABV and you can expect this kit to produce somewhere around 6-8%.
