The Dark Rock Hazy Daze is a powerfully hopped, juicy NEIPA style beer. The appearance is slightly hazy.  Hops are added towards the end of the boil to give a juicy less bitter flavour, and dry-hopping is emphasised in the Hazy Daze. The use of high-protein grains (flaked oats, wheat) contributes to the beer’s haze and mouthfeel. The overall goal is a hazy, juicy IPA packed with fruity and floral flavours. This beer is best consumed fresh and young.

Details

What is it?

The Dark Rock Hazy Daze is a powerfully hopped, juicy NEIPA style beer. A New England IPA (or NEIPA) is essentially an unfiltered IPA or Double IPA that's been aggressively hopped. The appearance is slightly hazy (or cloudy to opaque).  Hops are added towards the end of the boil to give a juicy less bitter flavour, and dry-hopping is emphasised in the Hazy Daze. The use of high-protein grains (flaked oats, wheat) contributes to the beer’s haze and mouthfeel. The overall goal is a hazy, juicy IPA packed with fruity and floral flavours. This beer is best consumed fresh and young. This kit makes 40 pints of 5.8% (approx) ABV New England IPA. 

This top of the range kit will produce a beer that you can be proud of. No compromise has been made on quality and only the freshest hops and malts have been selected. The kit also includes a sachet of Pure Brew water conditioner and yeast enhancer to ensure a pure commercial taste is achieved.  The kit is suitable for vegans as it contains no animal-based products.

What is the Dark Rock Bohemian Range?

The Bohemian Range is quirky and experimental. It mirrors the current commercial craft beer trend for creating off the wall styles and flavours that do not conform to traditional standards. The range includes special limited editions in order to keep things lively and interesting. All kits have been thoroughly researched and pilot tested by selected customer prior to being launched. Expect some explosive strengths, small batch quantities, and wacky flavour editions that shouldn't work, but do! Have fun with the Bohemian range and release the "Hipster" in you!

Each Dark Rock kit is carefully researched and developed by commercial brewers with extensive knowledge and a passion for craft beers and real ales. Dark Rock Kits enable you to produce commercial quality beers, all within the comfort of your own home. Malts and hops are added at controlled stages of the brewing process to provide rich aromas and depths of flavour which are simply stunning.

What makes the Dark Rock All-Grain range so special?

Dark Rock Brewing's All-Grain Beer Kits provide everything you need to make a superb ale.  All-grain brewing is a rewarding process, which puts you in full control of your brewing. It takes a little longer than making a standard beer kit or partial mash but the results are absolutely stunning. All-grain mash brewing is great fun and really allows you to develop the necessary skills to master your craft. Commercial quality malt and hops are used in each kit and the emphasis is on freshness. Dark Rock's all-Grain Mash Kits represent fantastic value too. Every recipe has been thoroughly researched and perfected to deliver the best taste possible. You only buy the exact amount of ingredients you need so there is no waste. Unlike making up your own recipe you will not have leftover quantities. With all grain brewing, it is important not to keep stocks of grains and particularly hops at home for long periods. The quality deteriorates quickly. Therefore, it does not make sense to buy larger quantities of grains and hops than you actually need. Dark Rock All-Grain Kits are weighed to the precise quantities you need for each brew, so you can be assured of the freshest ingredients and superb value. Hops are stored in temperature controlled rooms and vacuum packed immediately upon opening. This ensures the optimum quality of your brew.

What Equipment Do You Need?

Basic beer making equipment (5g fermenter, airlock, syphon tube with sediment trap, hydrometer, Suresan sanitiser, bottles or barrel). These are available under the starter kit section on this website. You will also need specialist equipment to make all grain beers. The process involves three stages. The first stage is mashing. Your mash equipment will need to maintain the grains and water at a constant temperature for an hour (usually 66C). This is important as only slight variations in temperature can affect the taste of the final beer. The second part of the process is sparging. This involves rinsing the grains with water slightly hotter than the mash (77C). Finally, the wort will need to be boiled for around 70 minutes and then cooled to fermentation temperature as fast as possible. From this point, the fermentation process is similar to standard kits.  There are numerous techniques equipment styles that can be used to make full mash beers. In the past, the most basic method used was a floating mash tun and insulated ice box. Alternatively, a Pico style Electrim Bin was used. Whilst these are still available, there are now easy to use all-grain brewing systems available. The initial cost is higher but these systems are superb and allow you to achieve bang on results every time. They also cut down the time that you have to be present during the process. All grain systems are so effective that most commercial breweries use them for testing experimental recipes prior to full-blown scale-ups. The Grainfather brewing system is highly recommended. The system can be expanded as your skills develop, to include conical temperature controlled fermenters, sparge water heaters, and even an integrated Glycol Chiller to ensure precise temperatures down to 4 degrees centigrade (useful for lager production and summer brewing). A wide range of all-grain brewing equipment is available on our website and we are always available to offer advice.

Tips

A sachet of Pure Brew is included with this kit in order to achieve a commercial quality. Pure Brew is a professional beer enhancer. It feeds the yeast with essential nutrients, which supercharge the fermentation and support yeast development (even in limited oxygen conditions). Pure Brew also treats brewing water to eliminate problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine (which can create a medicinal or as it is sometimes referred to, a "homebrew" taste) The condition of brewing water is critical to achieving optimum results but this important area is often overlooked. By using Pure Brew, you can effectively and easily condition brewing water, and maximise effective fermentation. We strongly recommend using Pure Brew with all of your beers to improve their quality.

You could consider investing in a metal hop spider to effectively manage hop additions into the boiling process. The hop spider would sit inside your boiler and allow you to drop hops into the boil in a controlled way. Hop Spiders allow hops to boil with more free flow space around them. They are easily cleaned and can be re-used over and over again. They also prevent hop sediment (known as trub) from clogging up pumping systems when using all in one brewing equipment.

Could not believe how good this turned out!
Did this kit as my third all grain brew. NEIPA is hands down my favorite beer style but I was nervous about brewing one having read how susceptible they are to oxidization. I brew with a brewzilla, a bucket (and temp controlled fridge), batch prime and bottle all my beers. With just tap water (surrey water plus 1 campden tab split between mash and sparge water) this beer has come out fantastic. I've just cracked open my first bottle after just 7 days bottling and a 17 day fermentation (5 days at 19.5c, 3 day ramp to 21, held at 21 for 8 days with dry hop for final 3), and its delish! Great mouthfeel, white fluffy head, very hoppy and fruity. Glorious haze. Could not be happier. Would easily pay a good £3.50 per can for this from the big brands. Packs a punch at just under 6% Dark Rock kits are excellent! One thing to note, this is a bid grain bill. If you are brewing with a brewzilla, the 19L isn't enough. I mashed in at around 21L and it was super thick. Had a decent sparge with 250g of rice huls though. If I was to brew again, Would probably mash at around 23-24L and use custom calcs from there.

Brilliant Kit
Lovely NEIPA. Full of flavour with nice aroma, smooth and good body. The instructions are a joy and as a result it is really easy to brew even for all grain beginners. It is great value for what you get. I never write reviews but I had to for this because it is so good. Buy this kit you won`t be disappointed. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Dog & Partridge on Youtube - watch them they have done quite a few Dark Rock reviews and they are really entertaining and fair. I have just brewed The Bosses Boss & Tribute to Punk IPA, too early to give them a fair review but I had a crafty taste of The Bosses Boss after just one week bottle conditioning and good already.

Absolutely amazing from 2 weeks.
This was my first AG brew on my new Grainfather. Far superior to the usual extract kits I've done even at 2 weeks. Very tasty with excellent mouthfeel. Took 4 days to ferment then 2 days dry hop, bottled on day 6.

Really good kit
Just brewed this and really impressed. Had a couple of bottles and results are very good. Only been bottled a week but it is really great. Only problem I had was racking due the amount of hops but worth it as they make it so good.

What happened last night IPA
Hazy it is, but tastes beautiful. This was my first brew from these guys and I was pleasantly surprised. Even though it’s strong, you can’t taste it, which is lethal lol. The only downside I found was racking the beer, with so many hops it clogged up my filter a lot. But if your brewing a neipa that’s to be expected. Worth the buy and the extra work.
