India Pale Ale was first brewed by the British in the late 19th century as a stronger version of their pale ale. With enough alcohol and hop oil (natural preservatives) to survive the long sea voyage to their then colony of India, India Pale Ale arrived in fine shape to slake the thirst and warm the senses of transplanted Britishers, who found themselves in a hot and dusty land without a pub in sight. Alcohol: 5.1%, IBU's 46.
Includes 8 3/4 lbs. of our blended malt extract, English Fuggle and Hallertau hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons of hearty ale with a starting gravity of at least 1.054. Ease of Brewing: Beginner
