MoreBeer! is proud to release this Black IPA recipe designed by our local homebrew Club D.O.Z.E.

After winning the AHA Homebrew Club Of The Year in 2010, the Diablo Order Of Zymiracle Enthusiasts (DOZE) put their minds together to collectively craft a beer they felt representative of the club and its brewers. The initiative was taken on as an all club project that spanned 5 months. In the end, over 50 members contributed ideas to this recipe and nearly 40 individual batches brewed by 23 DOZE members were tasted and refined to a single recipe. This beer is inspired by the style many refer to as Cascadian Dark Ale or Black IPA, however it is not intended to fit the mold of any particular guideline. Mostly it is big, dark, hoppy, and delicious.

The recipe was coined 'Diablo Dark Ale' in honor of our near by Mt. Diablo. Members of the Diablo Order of Zymurical Enthusiasts live in various cities located at the base of this great mountain. Also the location where many of us from MoreBeer! go mountain biking when we get the chance.

  • Makes 5 gallons
  • Estimated Original Gravity: 1.065-70
  • SRM (Color Range): 25-30
  • IBUs: 70-75
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 6.5%


Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Looks like the kits may have changed. I have brewed this before and bottled it. I would like to brew this recipe again and bottle half and Keg half. Does this kit come with Priming sugar? Do I need it if I Keg it?
WAYNE KNACK on Feb 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Wayne - Counter Pressure Bottle Fillers work wonders in these situations. You have the ability to keg the whole batch, then bottle from the keg with perfect foam and co2 levels.

Brewed this and was looking forward to having a black ipa on tap for the summer. I've brewed many extract kits in my 30+ years of brewing. Have never had one be so far off in color as this one. Sort of an amber ale. No where near black and I did follow the printed instructions. Taste is not what I expect in a black ipa either. Highly disappointed.

My Favorite Kit Yet?!?!?!
I hesitate to call any one kit my favorite, but if I did, this kit would be at the top of the list for that honor!

Great roasted flavor that is tempered with a great mix of hops....love the Simcoe in the dry hops!
The beer poured with a beautiful white head that contrasted so nicely with the clean, clear black body.

Wonderful mouth feel and aroma rounds out this great kit!

Great Black IPA extract kit
I wanted to ensure that I contributed to this because it was after reading reviews that I decided to purchase this kit. I like Black IPA's, unlike most people I have come across.

The brewing instructions were pretty generic and I wish that more beer provided brewing instructions more specific to each kit, but I get that they are going for simplicity. The brewing instructions were easy to follow.

I took another reviewers advice and added an extra 1oz of fuggle hops to 60 minute boil along with an extra 1oz of Centennial to the dry hop. Primary for 3 weeks. Dry hopped for one week. Results were fantastic. Nice roasty base with bitterness and hop bite. I was hoping for more hops on the nose but for that I would probably need to do a double dry hop with more hops varieties. Either way this is awesome and I would brew this again.

2nd Brew Came Out Amazing
This was only my second brew, first from Morebeer. It came out sooo good. I split my 5 gallons into 2 and 3 after running through the full fermentation and dry hopping process. Put the 3 gallons into the keg and placed the other 2 into secondary with 8 oz of Lavazza Crema e Gusto expresso. Let it sit for 2 more weeks and then bottled it and let it set for another 2 weeks. Had nothing but compliments for both. will buy again for sure

The best IPA I've ever had.....and I made it!
I'm not usually a IPA lover....I don't like very bitter beers, but that's not to say I don't like hoppy beers! This dark IPA is very balanced with some great hop taste. It's one of the best beers I've ever made and will most likely have a permanent home on my 4 tap! I threw in the bottling sugar and 50% of the LME the last 15 minutes of the bowl, used California Ale yeast WLP001.
Try this beer, you won't be disappointed!

Excellent beer
This beer has the best of both worlds: Strong hop flavor/aroma combined with dark and roasty malt flavor. The perfect brew and my favorite so far.
