115th Dream Hopbursted IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
History has known this terrifying ale by many names: Darth Humulus, One Pound Johnny, the Green Monster, Cerveza del Diablo, Lord of the Fly Sparge, Harvester of Cones. There no need for us to gild the lily, so how about some data followed by some facts: one pound of hops (yeah, a pound of hops), 9.2% abv, IBUs in the neighborhood of 120, BU:GU ratio of 1.2:1.
Hopbursting is a technique that contributes a significant percentage of a beer total bitterness through late additions, which as a byproduct creates a psychedelic amount of hop aroma and flavor. This kit uses enough ingredients to brew at least four session beers.
If you serve this beer to a Michelob Ultra drinker, he or she will cry. If life were a 1950s horror flick, this IPA would climb out of the fermenter and turn on its master. Your dentist does not want you to brew or drink this beer. Sorry in advance about your tooth enamel.
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results. Click here for more info.

This brew used 16oz of hops and none were used in a dry hop process. Two weeks in primary - 3 weeks in secondary - cold crashed for 1 week and into the keg. Ended up at 10.5% and very smooth. It is a bit of a creeper. I will make this again for sure
just bottled today tasted great
I've made this beer several times since Bob won his Nobel , which it was in honor of.
I like it, but my husband likes it most, so I continue to make it for him. It is good and packs a punch.
I would love to review it but unfortunately UPS is holding the package hostage was all set to brew this past weekend had my starter ready but no ingredients
I bought this kit several months ago and just finished that batch. Can't wait for this next batch to be ready.
