Dead Ringer® IPA BIAB All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Dead Ringer® is an homage to a benchmark of the American IPA style that's brewed in Michigan. This is a larger-than-life American IPA beer kit with a hop aroma so thick you can almost see it. 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.
All kits yield 3 gallons and include blended grain malts, hops, 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.
Same recipe, new format - We now offer it to you in a convenient stove top BIAB format. The recipe is exactly the same and is still the same kit that's close to your hearts - just a little smaller.

I sampled a few drops while taking a refractometer reading two days after putting it in the fermenter, already delicious!
Great color, nice head (carved with corn sugar and bottled) and good flavor. Not too bitter but also not as much hop aroma as I hoped. I bought another kit and will keg this one to see if I can keep more hop aroma. Its definitely a keeper
Brewed this a few weeks ago... just tried the first one after only 3 days in the bottle and it was actually really good...I'd drink them just like that..
I left it in primary for a total of 12 days... dry hopped at day 7 and bottled on day 12.. put one in the fridge after 3 days bottled and it was really good... not quite the aroma I was going for but I'm sure it'll come around in a few weeks...
I didn't hit all my numbers on this batch.. hadn't brewed all grain in almost 2 years so missed my OG which turned out to be 1.052... my mash temp was a bit low... 148 i think... so not quite as sweet as bells two hearted but really good..
I also built my water profile up from distilled water and pitched a healthy yeast starter of San Diego super yeast which probably helped with the quick turn around on this beer... I'd highly recommend this kit/recipe...
Loved this one just a great hoppy iPa citrusy and easy drinking.
This was my first BIAB. Brewed it 5 weeks ago and had my first one yesterday and it was good. I had it side by side with founders centennial IPA and it's just about spot on. I used the dry yeast and rehydrated it. I have a freezer with a temp controller for regulating fermentation temps but I had another beer in there so I stuck it in my closet with ambient temps ranging from hight 60 to low 70's temp. Had it sit in primary for 3 weeks then dry hopped in primary and a week later bottled it. Very good beer and will be brewing this again sometime down the road
