- Product Details
- At first glance this beer is as white as a frozen tundra, but upon closer scrutiny, tall drifts of American hop flavor and aromas abound. A traditional witbier grain bill and yeast strain coupled with West Coast American hops yields a wonderfully complex India White Ale beer kit. A slight spice and tartness from the yeast intermingling with citrus notes from abundant hop additions compliment the silky smooth body created by flaked oats and unmalted wheat. Stay frosty my friends!

- 4.8 / 5.020 ReviewsGood beerLoved this recipe! Good, lighter bodied IPA. Very balanced and easy to drink. Not as bitter as other IPAs, which makes it more approachable for people who aren't necessarily hop heads.April 28, 2017Fantastic IPA, Crowd favoriteI love this IPA, its my go to, I've made it 4 times within the last year, I have always added an extra 5oz of hops to this delicious beast. I just brewed it again last weekend, saved the majority of the extract until the last 15 min of the boil and did a 4 or 5 oz hop stand for 15min at flame out. Gravity came in as expected, I pitched 2 smack packs of Wyeast 1272 to make it less of a Belgian IPA, this thing took off like a rocket, pitched the yeast @ 6pm, by 6am it was already pushing into the air lock, had to attach a blow off tube and it fill the tube for a solid day! By doing the late malt additions it appears much closer to the color advertised in the picture, cant wait for it to finished up, move to secondary and dry hop with another 2oz. My boss loves when I make this beer its by far his favorite IPA. 10 for 10 will brew again and again!February 23, 2017Purchased
1 year agoFriends love itI did this a year ago, still had some bottles to break out this holiday and it really stood up well. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again.February 4, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoYummy IWAVery nice play on a Belgian Wit. The dry hop really gives it a nice aroma and hop flavorOctober 18, 2016August 2, 2016Bottled and waiting!Just bottled this yesterday and took a taste sample durting FG testing which came out to 1.011, even flat this beer is going to be fantastic, great hop aroma nice bitterness and good body, cant wait to try it in a few weeks!June 14, 2016Should make a great time!!!I dont know how this one tastes yet but I am excited to try it out, I kept everything the same except that I basically doubled the hop bill on this one with different late addition hops on different time schedules. During primary fermentation it smelt like walking through a hop forest guarded by pine and citrus flavored gnomes!!!!! Dry hopped in secondary with 2 oz over the 1 oz, will be bottling in a week and cant wait to try it!June 6, 2016Good clean basic ipaGood clean basic ipaApril 11, 2016Go-to IPAThis is my go to IPA. It's well balanced and very drinkable. People who aren't crazy about IPAs like this beer. Because most of the 5.5 oz of hops come later in the boil or in the secondary, you get plenty of flavor and aroma with a nice balance of bitterness against the inherent sweetness of its Belgain witbier origins. I've made this beer five times and have come up with a couple of modifications to the already very good recipie. First, when I make my late add of malt 45 min into the boil, I stop my timer until I get the pot boiling again--about 5-7 min or so. Then I make the scheduled hop add 15 min before the end of the boil. This gets a little more bitterness out of the hops already in the pot and it ensures I only keep the flavor hops in the pot for 15 min and not longer while Im reheating the pot after the late add. The other mod is that I add a second dry hop infusion about 5 days before I keg. I use the .5 oz summit left over from the boil and an oz of centennial I buy separately. This really adds to the hop experience when you drink it. Sounds so good, I think I'll have one now...October 4, 2015Amazingly smooth and fruity for a heavy hopped IPAI will brew this one over and over. All my friends loved it and asked for more. It is heavy on hops, but light on the bitter kick. Very smooth, almost light considering the hops added and balanced. One of my favorite recipes!July 16, 2015
- Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersWould you recommend using a yeast starter kit for this brew?BEST ANSWER: Yes I could recommend that a yeast started be used. I however used the wyeast option. Letting the yeast activate in the pouch was enough for me to get fermentation off to a very healthy start.What is the final gravity?BEST ANSWER: My OG was 1.0622, and my FG was 1.0148. Really good ale.It seems like people are saying to add more of the LME near the end of the boil. Should I hold off on adding all of the 6lbs in the beginning?BEST ANSWER: The technique of adding about 1/3 of the malt extract during the last 20 minutes of the boil does two things; improves buttering hip utilization and helps to keep the color of the beer more towards what the steeping grains provide. I personally wouldn’t add all of the malt at the end, but 1/2 to 1/3 is a fine idea.This recipe calls for a 20 min steep of the oats and unmalted wheat, does this need to be 'mashed' with a base malt?BEST ANSWER: No, steeping the oats and wheat will just fine! I highly recommend Irish mosh (or similar) to take proteins out of suspension because the wheat/oats are higher in protein. I won't make that mistake again.
