Description

Dark Rock Hazy Daze NEIPA – All Grain Kit

Dark Rock Hazy Daze NEIPA - All GrainThe Dark Rock Hazy Daze is created as a powerfully hopped, juicy NEIPA style beer. Essentially, brewers aggressively hop an unfiltered IPA or Double IPA to create a New England IPA (or NEIPA). The appearance is slightly hazy (or cloudy to opaque). Brewers add hops towards the end of the boil to give a juicy, less bitter flavour, and they emphasise dry-hopping in the Hazy Daze. The use of high-protein grains (flaked oats, wheat) contributes to the beer’s haze and mouthfeel. The overall goal aims for a hazy, juicy IPA packed with fruity and floral flavours. You should consume this beer fresh and young for the best experience. 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. We use commercial-quality malt and hops in each kit, placing a strong emphasis on freshness.

Dark Rock’s all-Grain Mash Kits represent fantastic value too. 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.

We weigh Dark Rock All-Grain Kits to precise quantities required for each brew, ensuring the freshest ingredients and excellent value. We store hops in temperature-controlled rooms and vacuum-pack them 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, you will need to boil the wort for around 70 minutes and then cool it to fermentation temperature as fast as possible. From this point, the fermentation process is similar to standard kits. You can use numerous techniques and equipment styles to make full mash beers.

In the past, brewers used a floating mash tun and insulated ice box as the most basic method. Alternatively, they used a Pico style Electrim Bin. 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.

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT

We highly recommend the Grainfather brewing system. You can expand this system as your skills develop, to include conical temperature-controlled fermenters, sparge water heaters, and even an integrated Glycol Chiller. This ensures precise temperatures down to 4 degrees centigrade, which is 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

This kit includes a sachet of Pure Brew 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 treats brewing water, eliminating problems that Chlorine and Chloramine create. These problems can result in a medicinal or “homebrew” taste.

Overlooking the condition of brewing water can impact results, even though it’s critical to achieving optimum results. 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. You can easily clean them and re-use them over and over again. They also prevent hop sediment (known as trub) from clogging up pumping systems when using all in one brewing equipment.

Oh my Daze…. Got his after the Oyster Boys review. Hands down one of the best all grain beers I have brewed. Very good recipe and brilliant hop balance. We brewed it as 2 kits as a 46 litre batch with Verdant IPA yeast. I used a good NEIPA water profile and turned out brilliant. Well done chaps. Will buy again. Lovley beer.

This is a top kit, I brewed it for a Christmas present for my son as he was having a house full over the Christmas break. It is not a style that I would normally make but I told him to choose a kit and I would brew it for him, well it went down a storm they finished the keg in two days with requests for me to brew it again, I had a few pints myself and not knowing a lot about this style found it was a damn sight better than the same style served in our local craft beer bar that we tried as a comparison. If you like NEIPA style beer then this is the one for you. Follow the instructions to the letter and you cant go wrong I hit all the numbers, great beer..

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.
