India Pale Ale

Item #:3704
Description: India Pale Ale was developed in England during their colonization of India. The civilians and soldiers living there had no access to beer of their own, as temperatures on the sub-continent were constantly too warm for brewing. Attempts at shipping beer from England (usually the new 'Pale' ales that were becoming so popular) were foiled by the rocking of the waves and the high temperatures in the ships' hulls, which spoiled the beer long before it reached its destination. Back in London, a brewer named George Hodgson began brewing beer for export to India. The beer was brewed with a higher alcohol level, and higher hopping rates to preserve the beer on its journey. The beer was a success in India, and "IPA" as it came to be known, caught on in England as well and a new beer style was born! Our India Pale Ale has a copper/golden color with a slightly higher starting gravity and hop rates than our regular Pale Ale with medium aroma hops. The Brew House IPA is a perfect match for spicy foods and BBQ, as it has the fortitude to stand up to the 'big food' flavor, yet is still crisp and refreshing on the palate. 50 IBU's Best at 12ยบ C. This kit is concentrated wort kit - no boiling necessary! Making beer with a Brew House kit is very similar to making wine from a kit - Just add water, sprinkle the yeast, and you're off and running! You can even use your winemaking equipment to make beer... the difference, of course, is that you'll need a capper, beer bottles, and some crown caps.
