Dark Rock Hazy Daze NEIPA – Part Grain Kit

Dark Rock Hazy Daze NEIPA - Part GrainDark 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 this New England IPA. 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 produces 40 pints of delicious, juicy, New England IPA at 5% ABV.

Bohemian Series

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 customers 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 series and release the “Hipster” in you!

What Makes Dark Rock Part Grain Kits So Special?

Part-grain beer kits are an excellent way to take your brewing to the next level. Brewing takes a little longer using this method, but the results are well worth it. With our friendly expert guidance, these kits are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced brewers. All you need extra is a pan and a thermometer. By adding a ‘mini-mash’ to the malt extract brewing technique, using different varieties of malt and hops, you can create more complex flavoursome beers according to your taste.

Dark Rock provides the ultimate range of part-grain kits. Our expert knowledge of brewing combined with sourcing only the finest quality ingredients means Dark Rock part grain kits will enable you to brew exceptional beer that will rival any you can buy in pubs and shops.

Dark Rock kits combine 3kg of the finest quality malt extract with a blend of premium malt grains and hops sourced by us from around the world. We believe our kits are the best on the market and feedback from our many satisfied customers backs this up.

All ingredients are bought and stored fresh and weighed into individual bags. Our hops are vacuum-packed in nitrogen-flushed foil bags to produce the maximum flavour and aromas.

Whatever your brewing experience, a part grain kit is a great choice and requires minimal investment in equipment. With such a wide range of beer styles to choose from, there is sure to be a beer for you, whether it is a tropical pale ale, a rich stout, or a refreshing pilsner.

Tips

This kit includes a sachet of Pure Brew to ensure a commercial-quality outcome. 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.

This kit includes a muslin bag. 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 reused repeatedly.

Brewed this in September 2019. Fabulous pint. Very hazy, wonderful hop aroma, minimal bitterness and a great flavour. Would definitely brew this over and over again!

This was my first attempt at partial mash, I should’ve made the jump ages ago!. Very clear instructions made it a dream. The only thing that stopped my beer living it’s full potential was my small hop spider I used for dry hopping. Should’ve just used the bag provided. This beer is fantastic, got the bosses boss to do next, cannot wait!

Finished drinking this a few weeks ago. Very easy to drink, and disappears very quickly when you have mates around. This also smells incredible.

Included: comprehensive instructions, generous ingredients & all necessary extra equipment.

Not included: years of brewing experience.

Required: a few pieces of brewing equipment. NO GREAT AMOUNT OF BREWING EXPERIENCE!

This was a lovely kit to work with: fun to brew and, believe me, a pleasure to drink. It’s amber/orange hazy with a big tropical smack to the nose, hop forward taste with enough malt to smooth it out.

I’ve a different part grain kit to do next but will definitely return to Dark Rock for another soon.
