Alchemist's Heady Topper: the beer that some say was the first New England IPA, and which kicked off the haze craze currently sweeping the craft beer world. Unfortunately for us, it's elusive at best in its home state of Vermont, and nigh-on impossible to get your hands on in the UK.
What else is there to do then, than brew your own? This all-grain recipe kit includes all the grains, yeast and TONS of hops you need to make 5 US gallons (18.9L) of Off the Topper New England IPA.
This is a big, juicy double-IPA loaded with Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo and Apollo for a whirlwind of tropical and piney aromas. The kit includes all the malts weighed out, tons of hops (including for dry hopping), Brun Leger brown candi sugar, Hop Shot hop extract and yeast. See the PDF below for details.
Kit includes Safale US-05 dried yeast sachet.
Kit does not include priming sugar for bottling. Use priming or brewing sugar, or fizz drops.
