If you don't already have an Evil Twin, you should definitely consider one: imagine the scapegoating possibilities! Homebrew figurehead, author, multiple Ninkasi Award-winner, Brewing Network host, and all-around good dude Jamil Zainasheff's sinister doppelganger is mahogany-colored, lavishly hopped, and lives in a keg or bottle, and he's only too happy to help you find your own. JZ and NB have teamed up to bring you Jamil's Evil Twin® in kit format.
A strong, deep copper-red IPA beer kit that boasts a complex malt profile but is really a showcase for hopbursting. Hopbursting forgoes the traditional additions of bittering hops early in the boil in favor of copious additions of aroma varieties late in the boil. For the brewer, the result is a significant IBU contribution as well as intense hop aroma and flavor from the late additions. For the drinker, the result is smooth bitterness in a pint suffused with a fragrant fog of hop flavor and aroma. Don't blame us if you can't stop brewing and drinking it – it was our Evil Twin.Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.
Note: When the brewing gets tough, the tough get brewing... Due to a severe shortage of Amarillo hops this year, Jamil Zainasheff has authorized a substitution to his usual recipe. The Amarillo hops called for in the original Evil Twin® will be replaced by Cascade hops until the next hop harvest. Brew on!

- 4.7 / 5.069 ReviewsLove Some Evil!I've not brewed this yet. However, I used to live down the road from Heretic Brewing which is the birthplace of Evil Cousin and Evil Twin.
Those are two of my favorite beers, so I'm very excited to give this one a shot and see how it turns out.
Thanks, Jamil for making your brews available on the East Coast now that I'm too far away to step in to your establishment.January 18, 2018Ah, the Brew!Jamil's Evil Twin has the great combination of hops and bitterness that I look for and continue to brew. My friends really like the beer type and it doesn't last lone once in the keg or bottle, as I do both. I am set to brew another Jamil's to get it ready for friends arriving in a couple monthsApril 10, 2017Purchased

1 year agoOur Least Favorite NB RecipeWe've been brewing for over a year now, once every month. This has been by far our least favorite beer to brew. In fact, it's set us back and we're less inspired to order another kit. We brew exclusively IPAs & Pale Ales, I'd skip on this one if I had a do-over.March 13, 2016Response from Northern BrewerGreetings!
I'm sorry this kit wasn't what you were expecting. We do have a kit replacement guarantee. If you'd like to take advantage of that we ask only that you pay the shipping.
Cheers!November 21, 2016Northern BrewerJust Bottledjust bottled today after 3 weeks in primary fermentor. OG was slightly high at 1.075 and final gravity came in at 1.010. Color is perfect for a Red IPA and the taste was the same. Can not wait for the bottles to condition so I can drink it nice and cold.March 1, 2016Great Brew!Jamil' Evil is a great combination, easy to brew and always in my mix. Given Winter is now upon us in Maine, I am preparing to brew a batch this week.December 29, 2015solid brewstrong malt base, I may brew this again!April 24, 2015Fantastic Beer!!!This kit is a winner!! Very malty IPA that both hop heads and malt heads can enjoy. This kit went faster than any other kit I have brewed to date. Family and friend favorite Thank you Jamil and NB for working together on this so I can enjoy!!September 12, 2014Nicely balanced IPAThis is a nice copper colored IPA. I would say that it is not over the top with the hops but a nice balanced IPA. Two weeks primary, 3 weeks secondary, 2 weeks in kegerator set this one up very nicely. If you are looking for a well balanced IPA, brew this kit.July 6, 2014What an IPANot only was this an easy brew to do, but it is one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Body balances good with hop palate to deliver a great brew. OG 1.062 FG 1.011 so I got a hearty 6.7 ABV out of it. A must brew. this will be my first brew when I get into all grain and keggingMay 16, 2014
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersIs it necessary to make a yeast starter when using the new omega yeast?BEST ANSWER: Ok did not get a answer so I made a starter......150g light dme 1.5 liters water.....made starter morning of brew day 8ish I'd say finished brewing and pitched around 7 in the evening same day woke up next morning wishing I used a blowoff airlock hit the ceiling not sure if I needed the starter but shortest lag time I have seen in awhile so..........starter goodIf I get the yeast starter kit with this kit, that will be the yeast I'm using for this batch, so it doesn't matter what yeast option I select from the kit, correct?BEST ANSWER: That is not correct. The yeast starter kits only include the supplies to make starter wort and do not include yeast. You'll still need to select yeast with your kit.
