Beer Recipe Kit - New England IPA
Available in 23 L (6 gallon) or 19 L (5 gallon) batch sizes.
The general profile of this style is sweet, fruity and hazy/cloudy (not to be confused with murky or thick).
Hops are not added during boiling but at the end using a process called hop-standing. Adding the hops after the boiling stage retains the oils while excluding the bitterness from the hops. Dry hopping during fermentation is also very important in this style.
The colour is pale (straw to golden), the body is full and the finish is smooth and creamy with little or no bitterness when drinking.
The aroma is intense hops and the flavours include tropical fruits (pineapple, papaya, guava, etc.) and sometimes stone fruits and citrus fruits. Herbal or grassy notes are not typically found. The malt profile is relatively neutral, but sometimes a little toasty, so it does not overwhelm the hops. Although fruity, the beer should not be sweet from unfermented sugars but from high esters instead. A high final gravity is not appropriate for this style.
Ranges from 5% to 7.5% alcohol. OG: 1.050-1.075 / IBUs: 40-60 / FG: 1.010-1.018 / SRM: 5-14
