A Tribute to Punk IPA – Part Grain Kit

Tribute to Punk IPA - Part GrainThis fresh, full-flavoured natural beer is Dark Rock’s tribute to the legendary Brewdog Punk IPA. The beer includes an outrageous amount of wonderful fruity hops, giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish. Dark Rock Tribute to Brewdog Punk IPA makes 40 pints of 4.5% ABV IPA.

This 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.

Tribute Range

These kits allow you to produce beers which mirror the classic commercial favourites. Quality hops, malts and yeast have been carefully selected and matched to give you the closest possible result. They are not designed to be clones since factors such as water source and yeast type will be individual to each brewery. We recommend you have fun comparing the commercial beer against your own to see how close you can get.

The Commercial Brewery

BrewDog is one of the fastest-growing alternative beer brands and the Punk IPA has become one of the most popular beers in the country. This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the legendary Punk IPA. It’s light golden in colour with flavours of tropical fruits and a light caramel aroma. The palate soon becomes assertive and resinous from stunning New Zealand hops balanced by the Caramalt. The finish is aggressive and dry with the hops emerging over the warming alcohol. This modern twist of India Pale Ale uses amazing fruity hops giving the beer an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

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.

The addition of beer finings will improve the final quality of your beers. This kit includes Starbrite finings.  They 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 before kegging. Harris Starbrite is a highly effective vegan-friendly beer fining, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with craft brewers. It is suitable for all beers.

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.
