Dead Ringer® is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that’s brewed in Michigan. 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. This IPA recipe kit has been a customer favorite for over a decade.

Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

You will buy more guaranteed!!!
I've made this kit 3 times and it is fantastic. Centennial is a favorite of mine, so this beer goes down easy. Sometimes I will backload my hops for less bitterness ( for my non hoppy friends)

The name say's it all !
It's called 'Dead Ringer' for a reason - believe me - This top brewing selection holds it's head high, pun intended. And below that is an impressive IPA that that can boast about it's balance of mouth feel and smooth infusion of hops and rich malty flavor that give this brew a true IPA character. I do make one little change though based on my affinity for Simcoe hops that I use in the initial stage and also in a dry hop stage. It's malty and spot on for an IPA, that's why it's named Dead Ringer after all.

Solid but not very hoppy
Brewed this beer and it came out smooth, clear, and very drinkable. It would totally be a 5 star beer for me if it were hoppier - I thought that with the large number of hop additions this one would fit the bill but it fell a bit short. Tasted more like a pale ale to me.

Still solid. A great brew for people who like a middle of the road IPA that doesn't overwhelm with hops.

Delicious IPA - Standard in my keezer.
I have made this recipe several times and it has always turned out great.
There are a couple of pales that I try to keep on tap all of the time. This one is almost always present.
Not a hop bomb as some IPAs can be.
Just a very pleasant experience in a pint glass.

Questionable quality, Horrible customer service
I purchase three kits including Ace of Spades and Grapefruit Pulpin. Ace used Briess 2-row while Dead Ringer and Pulpin used Rahr. I have never had an issue with my mash PH and while Ace was dead on (5.25-5.3) the kits using Rahr had a PH of 5.7-5.8. Ruined my efficiency and created a lack luster beer. I used the same water, strike h20 temp, grain/h20 ratio, chemistry, etc... To top it off when I brought this to Northerbrewer's attention, I was told the grain is fine and to add chalk. Unless I'm crazy I was told CaCO3 will raise the PH. And they never responded to my follow up emails. Like the title says questionable quality, and horrible customer service. Will not be buying kits from here again.

What is the F.G. target on this one and which liquid yeast do you recommend and why? (Learning)
D A on Dec 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The FG should be in the range of 1.008-1.014. As for yeast, we recommend either the Wyeast 1056 or WLP001 California Ale yeast from White Labs. The reason is that both of these yeasts ferment pretty cleanly, lend almost no yeast character or flavor, and let the malt and hops (especially the hops) drive the beer.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Charles
What is the final gravity?
A N on Jul 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That will depend somewhat on how well you hit your mash temps and yeast health. But a good number would be around 1.016 or roughly 75% attenuation.
just to clarify. For dead ringer ipa boil additions. Is it a 60 minute total time boil putting in centennial right at the start of the boil, and than add centennial when you have 20 minutes left and again the last 5 min. of the boil. In fact, are all your kits set up like this.
Dennis K on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yesi followed the deadringer ipa As per instructions . I dont always brew this way , i mix it up some partial grain, some extract. And when the weather gets nice the garage isnt too cold i do all grain in the garage. Partial and extract i can do in the house in the winter
I'm new to all grain brewing and my question is, how do I determine the amounts of water required for all grain, 5 gallon batch? I didn't see that detail in the recipe.
R I on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
there is a formula floating around that I have used to tell you the minimum mesh water required. If you take the weight of the grains in lb and multiply it by 1.1 you get the quarts of water needed. So divide that by 4 and you have gallons.
In my experience this is usually the minimum amount you want.
You need to know that the grains will soak up a lot of the water you out in your mesh ton. I usually use about 4 to 5 gallons of water to begin. This gives you plenty of room to add water to increase you wort temperature to 170 F at the end of the mesh out. And it leaves space to do a nice rinse when you have drained our wort to get the residual sugars I the grains.
Sorry for the late reply but I hope I could help.

Is yeast included in the base price of the kit, or do you have to purchase it at an additional cost?
B H on Apr 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The base price of the kit is $41.51. Yeast and priming options are selected by default to bring the kit to a total of 46.99. The yeast and priming options can be changed, and this will alter the price of the kit as a whole.
Grainfather?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used a GF for this kit. It worked well.
In IBrewmaster, The all grain recipe has an OG of 1.053 with 11 lbs of 2-Row and the recipe that comes with the kit showing 1.064 OG. Adding 2.5 lbs of 2-Row gives me the 1.064 OG in IBrewmaster. Why does the kit not come with 13.5 lbs of 2-Row. I do get the OG of 1.053 with the 11 lbs of 2-Row from the IBrewmaster recipe. Is this a typo error on the recipe?
Chris R on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: First time I brewed this beer I had 1.053. Second time I brewed it I hit 1.064. I did not add anything new, but by the second time my efficency had gone up. Course I brew for the taste and this is a good recipe, so if my numbers are off a bit I dont get stressed, after all this is suppose to be fun.
Since it recommends using a starter yeast, would you use the US-05 or buy one of the liquid yeasts offered? Thanks
D E on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dean,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! You can do a yeast starter with either the dry or liquid yeast. Both liquid and dry yeast will give basically the same flavor profile and attenuation. Personally I would just go with the safale dry yeast!
Can you make a non-alcoholic beer from this kit? If so, how?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: While there are techniques one could use to remove some of the alcohol from homebrew, alcohol-free is not possible on a homebrew scale.
Could these be double milled for BIAG?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used a BIAB setup with this kit milled as-is and was able to hit OG using the mash schedule provided.
