Back before the world caught on to the brilliance of Wallonian saison, brewers were wont to over-hop as their hearts dictated. Here we attempt to capture their joie de houblon, and bring full circle the versatility of "old" hop varieties. De Belge Farmhouse IPA beer kit is unlike any Belgian ale you've had before - aggressively bitter, roundly Belgian, brilliantly aromatic.
Reminiscent of Orval (pick up some Brett. B to add that special character) before they scrubbed the calcium deposits off the coppers. Built on a base of Belgian pils with a small percentage of torrefied wheat to fill out the body and add a suggestion of creaminess, then hopped to high levels with European gems (Brewer Gold and Hallertau, anyone?) and rippling with rich yeast fruitiness.
All kits yield 3 gallons and include blended grain malts, hops, yeast, and complete instructions. All-grain kits use malted grain as the base for the finished beer; in addition to familiarity with basic brewing techniques and the equipment for fermenting, siphoning, and bottling, you will also need equipment for brew-in-a-bag all-grain brewing.
