NEIPA's are becoming increasingly popular amongst craft brewers. The IPANEIPA is purposefully hazy and has a smooth creamy mouth-feel, which compliments the juicy tropical hop flavours. Hops are added towards the end of the boil to ensure a powerful hoppy flavour, but with minimum bitterness. Oats and wheat malt ensure the hazy smooth finish. The IPANEIPA makes 40% of 5.2% ABV New England IPA.

What is it?

The Dark Rock IPANEIPA 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 IPANEIPA. 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. The IPANEIPA makes 40 pints of 5.2% (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.

The IPANEIPA partial mash kit makes 40 pints of the highest quality beer. It is a step-up from standard kits, but simpler to make than an all grain full mash beer. To make this kit you will need standard brewing equipment plus a large saucepan (ideally holding at least 15 litres). To brew the kit simply steep the grains in water at 66C and then boil the hops in the saucepan. The hops are added at various stages throughout the boiling process. Hops added at the start of the boil give the beer the bitterness and those added at later stages will give the beer a delightful aroma.

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 not possible from standard hopped malt extract kits.

Bohemian Range

This 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!

What Makes the Dark Rock Partial Mash range special?

Most economy beer kits are supplied with 1.5kg of malt, or up to 1.8kg for standard kits. Many brewers now prefer to pay a little extra for boxed premium kits, which tend to include 3kg malt. The higher the malt content, the better the body and taste will be. You really do get what you pay for in this respect. Dark Rock Partial Mash kits contain a whopping 3.5kg of malt extract and that is without counting the malt grains! This puts them ahead of the pack in terms of malt content and gives the beer a massive quality advantage. Couple that with a really generous quantity of the freshest and best quality hops, and you have a beer which is pretty much impossible to beat without heading into all grain mashing territory. Even the most avid all grain aficionados supplement their stocks with Dark Rock Partial Mash beers. The reason they give is that the quality is right up there and the brewing time and complexities are greatly reduced.

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.

A muslin grain bag is included with this kit. You could consider investing in a metal hop spider to upgrade your equipment. The hop spider would sit inside your boiling pan and allow you to drop hops into the pan 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.
