Description  + More Info

After a year of test brewing, we have finally made a Double IPA good enough to release as a William’s Kit. After trying different malts and hop combinations, we settled on a light European pilsner malt base accented with American Cascade and Simcoe® hops, and fermented with perishable “Chico” style liquid ale yeast. The idea behind the light pilsner malt base was to produce a dry, non obtrusive background for the balanced citrus/pine hop load to come through without distraction from caramelized flavors. We leave it to you to judge the final outcome. Alcohol: 7.5%, IBU’s 75.

Includes 10 pounds of blended European pilsner malt and beet sugar, 3 hop additions, perishable ‘Chico’ ale yeast (this beer must be made within 12 days of receiving), and carbonating sugar. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.074. Ease of Brewing: Intermediate.

Note: Due to the instability of the liquid “Chico” ale yeast strain included (the pack will arrive swollen), you must brew this kit within 12 days of receiving. If you cannot brew this within 12 days of receiving, please delay ordering until you have time to brew. You can also make a yeast starter if you want to revive the yeast after 12 days.

Nice Change
This is a refreshing change from the traditional "West Coast" style IPA's. At first taste the hop combination is a bit surprising but interesting. I especially like the light pilsner malt base. Everybody around here liked this beer and I would buy it again. However, it won't supplant my preference for the more standard IPA recipes. It is a nice change.

Double IPA
This is the very best beer that I have ever experienced!
I have brewed many different styles of beer from other suppliers which have never quite excited me. Coming from Europe I was used to excellent brews and had never found just the right brew to satisfy my taste. Double IPA for the first time fulfilled that craving for a better beer.

Different from the classic Centennial hopped Midwest IPAs
Every bit as good as the local standard, Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

Nicely hopped, an interesting mix, Nice malt balance too. Different from the classic IPAs here in the Midwest. Not as piney or citrus hopped as some of the classic IPAs here in the midwest.

Excellent IPA
This is one of my favorite IPAs.  It was easy to make and turned out delicious.  It had nice bitterness and hop flavor, and I can't wait to make it again.

Great IPA
Made this several months ago in a ten gallon batch and it only lasted a few weeks.  Try another style and I couldn;'t wait to get back to this Double IPA.  Very good IPA. On the site now to buy more.
