Mangrove Jack’s Craft Series Pink Grapefruit IPA Kit

Mangrove Jack's Craft Series Pink Grapefruit IPAMangrove Jack’s Craft Series Pink Grapefruit IPA is inspired by Brew Dog’s Elvis Juice Citrus IPA, this contains great citrus hop notes combined with grapefruit aroma to give an abundance of fruit on the nose. Sharp and tangy, the grapefruit complements and enhances the citrus character of the hops, making it refreshing, clean and crisp on the palate.

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS REQUIRED:

To make this kit, you will either need 1Kg Brewing Sugar or 1Kg Beer Kit Enhancer (Preferred) . Later, you will also need sugar or carbonation drops to prime the keg or bottles for the secondary fermentation. We also advise using finings like Starbrite to ensure your lager clears quickly and the sediment sticks to the bottom on the bottle or keg.

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.

TIPS

Harris Pure Brew - 5 DoseWe strongly recommend using Pure Brew 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). Additionally, Pure Brew treats brewing water, eliminating problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine, which can create a medicinal or, as it is sometimes referred to, a “homebrew” taste. Achieving optimum results in brewing critically depends on the condition of brewing water, but this important area is often overlooked. By using Pure Brew, you can effectively and easily condition brewing water, and maximise effective fermentation.

The addition of beer finings will improve the final quality of your beer. Finings such as Harris Beer Brite will help your beer to clear quickly and the sediment will be more likely to stay at the bottom of bottles or barrels. If you are using Corny Kegs then it is important to clear the beer as much as possible before kegging. Beer Finings will promote a faster and more efficient fall out of sediment and haze particles prior to kegging. Harris Starbrite is a highly effective vegan-friendly beer fining, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with home brewers.

Once again Mangrove Jacks has came up with another excellent kit. I used their LME with it to add extra body and having done this kit before with just brewing sugar it definitely made a difference with the LME. Although it is a similar style to Brewdogs Elvis Juice it is no way near as punchy which I actually quite like. If you want it more similar then you will have to tweak it. Will make a refreshing pint for a long summer day.

Excellent brew though, whilst I didn’t detect any hint of grapefruit, a very pleasant flavour which developed over time. I would recommend using a filter bag on your siphon when racking off as I did lose a gold couple of pints due to the hop residue.

No mention of additional brewing sugar required until you receive the kit. The photo image of the kit is different to that received. So I need to make another purchase. Will not use Dark Rock for this because of the shipping cost. So will go down to the local Wilco. Neutral rating because I have not started it. I recommend that Dark Rock makes this clear in the description.
