Off the Topper IIPA All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Impossible to track down and destined to be drank from a can, this brew is a tribute to the infamous man with a head full of hops and the tenacious Alchemists that are its creators. Brew this elusive IIPA yourself with our recipe kit.
Intense hop aroma blows through with hurricane force, swirling up from a whirlwind of hazy liquid gold. Borne from a legendary Noraster, Off the Topper is a writhing tropical storm of fruity pineapple and dank piney-peach.
In a true work of sorcery, the Off the Topper IIPA beer kit creates synergy between Vermont yeast and an unprecedented flood of lupulin. Overcoming its intense origins, it is a rare, harmonious pint that is extreme only in its drinkability. Beneath the frothing, massive head lies a beacon of freshness and light in each pint. At the eye of the storm is a dry and crisp body. A complex and delicious Imperial IPA, Off the Topper balances bitterness with well-attenuated yeast that work together to weather the hurricane of hops.
Preparing a yeast starter is highly recommended when using the Vermont Ale Liquid Yeast. This will help reduce the lag time before fermentation begins.

I have bought this several times an have never been disappointed. Recently I was able to get a few cans of the real deal an did a “Pepsi challenge “ with it vs my clone most preferred mine. Only difference is that it has a darker color an does not hae the same finish. The clone does not have that sour finish.
This is a great recipe kit. Not only was this the first time I had brewed an all grain in a couple of years, but it was the first time I'd used Northern Brewer, and it went off without a hitch - from brewing, to fermentation, adding dry hops, etc, and the taste of the beer is phenomenal! Highly recommend this product - met (and exceeded) all expectations!
This is seriously the best beer I’ve brewed yet. Also the most hops I’ve ever uses. Had a few friends taste test it and all have loved it. I highly recommend it!
I am always struck by the aging process. If you rush you get good beer, if you are able to have patience, you get a great beer. Each day a little more carbonation in the Keg and each day a better product. Do read the entire process before you start and plan your time. It is worth it.
Hops abound in this kit. Came out fantastic. It's a must if you're looking to brew a big hop beer. One recommendation, be sure to cold crash this prior to kegging or bottling. It was real hazy and i kegged it. Had to open the keg and put in grlatine after a few days of getting hazy draughr.. Cleared up just fine. A cold crash would have yielded a clearer beer from the keg.
