Product details

Dead Ringer® is a larger-than-life American IPA beer recipe 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, these ingredients combine to give you a pale amber color, hop intensity and malt density--substance with the soul of a sessionable craft beer.

This IPA recipe kit has been a customer favorite for a decade. Dead Ringer® is an homage to a legendary American IPA style that's brewed in Michigan. And according to countless homebrewers, it's dead on.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head Brewer:

"Dead Ringer is our way of paying tribute to one of the most iconic IPAs in America. In the upper Midwest (and many other parts of the country), this beer is a mainstay of aficionados. A simple malt bill and hearty doses of Centennial creates magic with only 2 malts and 1 hop variety. The resulting product is awash in hop aroma, while not overpowering the malt component. Aromas of citrus fruits and floral notes dominate, while the rich malt character in the background offers a perfectly balanced pint.

This recipe does come with a relatively high gravity, so be sure to pitch enough yeast to ensure fermentation health. One pack of Omega or Imperial should do the trick, but to be sure, a yeast starter or multiple packs of yeast is recommended. Try to keep the temperature in the lower range of recommendations (65°F is perfect!) to ensure that your batch has the cleanest possible flavor without producing too many esters. When finished and carbonated, share with another and there will be two hearts with ample joy!"

This is my third time brewing this clone beer. This batch was the best yet! I think it is much better than the beer it is a cloned from.

This is only my fourth batch, but I have had good luck with all of them. Have learned to stir wort and not boil it on high

If I brew this batch again I will cut the adding hops in half. Really a bitter brew for my taste. Good flavor and aroma though.

We adjusted the hop times and converted it to a New England style IPA. Came out sweeter and a nice maple tone. Made it yesterday.
