Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Haze Craze is our take on the hazy North East IPA.  Also known as a New England IPA recipe, or a Juicy IPA, it is one of the fastest growing beer styles in the US.  The style accentuates hop character while maintaining a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  Light in color but hazy due to heavy dry hopping, yeast selection, as well as additions of oat and wheat .  Low in bitterness with a huge hop character due to hop-bursting, this beer will satiate even the biggest hop head.

The North East IPA has become popular nationwide thanks to breweries like Tree House Brewing, The Alchemist, Hill Farmstead and Grimm Artistanal Ales.  After my first taste of this delicious style, I knew that brewing it at home was a must.

When transferring my wort from kettle to primary fermentor carboy, I noticed my wort was DARK. Any ideas on how this may have happened? Thanks in advance!
Kevin Cayton on May 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The other answers here raise great points that there could have been some scorching or that the solids from the hops can distort the color as your wort goes into the fermenter. Turning off your flame while pouring in the extract can reduce the risk of scorching.
Before transferring from the kettle into the fermenter waiting 10 minutes for the hops and other solids to settle to the bottom is a great way to get clearer wort and less sediment in the fermenter.

For all extract brews one great way to achieve a lighter color is to only add half of the malt extract at the beginning of the boil and the other half at the end of the boil. This will prevent any excess caramelization of the malt extract thus lightening the color and reducing residual sweetness.
I made my first dry hop addition (following recipe) after 3 days in fermenter. They have now been in there for 8 days. Am I supposed to take them out before the next addition of hops or is it okay to leave in until I bottle? I plan to make next addition tomorrow and bottle in 4 days. If I leave the first addition in until bottling, that means it would have been in for 12 days. I'm a little concerned about off flavors from leaving them in too long, but not sure if I should be with this overall short amount of time. Thanks
Aaron Schmidt on Feb 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Aaron - We recommend dry hopping only 5 days for the first addition of hops, I would recommend pulling the first addition of hops by now. Go ahead and add the second addition of hops 3 days prior to bottling.
Do you steep flaked oats and flaked wheat like normal steeping grains?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, like normal. The oatmeal and wheat soak up tons of water. I recommend splitting the amount in at least 2 large grain bags. I put it all in one bag and it sank to the bottom and burned a hole right through. It was mess trying to scoop out all that oatmeal. Plus if you have the oatmeal in it's own bag, you'll have breakfast ready the next day! Truthfully, I did use a lot of spent grains for making oatmeal bars and bread.
I usually do two weeks in primary then two weeks in secondary fermenter. Should I just add the first addition of hops after a week or still the three days? And in the secondary is the full two weeks alright?
Ronald Conover on Apr 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: When I brewed this recipe I did not do a secondary. This style tends to oxidize very easily. According to my notes, I split the dry hop (which I think is in the instructions). First round was day 3 of primary fermentation and second round was day 9 of primary fermentation. From the primary to the keg it went.
What's the best fermentation temperature for it? I'll be using Wyeast London Ale III
James Cruz on Aug 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The recommended fermentation temperature for this kit is 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Great beer
This was a great ingredient kit. I loved how all the hops were pre-measured and ready to go. The aroma is fantastic as is the flavor.

Brewed Haze Craze and Lunar Shock a week ago so too soon to tell how they will eventually be. Lots of fun brewing these and they look and smell fantastic.

Lots of hops and specialty grains, IBUs are wrong
Made this recipe and finally got to taste it. During brew day I questioned how so many hop additions during boil and flame-out will only give me 28-32 IBUs. Short answer is it doesn't. Beer came out a milky golden haze (expected), but bitter and slightly dry. Brewer's Friend confirms that the IBUs are way more than the 28-32 advertised, in fact pushing 57 IBUs which is uncharacteristic of the style. Will probably stay away from kits from now on as the recipe sheet has been obviously wrong before, as is also the case with the Cream Ale kit also sold.

Response from MoreFlavor
Rares - Thank you for your review, we apologize your perceived bitterness was higher than our recipe card suggested. We typically try to ballpark these, as customers equipment varies, some will see more, some will see less. Hope the beer at least turned out!

Hazy Crazy IPA...best home brew yet, excellent kit!
I was very impressed unboxing the kit with amount of malty extract and hops. I loved the whole hop flowers, beautiful aroma. I used a brew sock for the flowers and pulled them right after the boil. I did the final dry hopping 48 hours prior to bottling, next time I'll add the hops too in a sock so they don't clog my bottle filler. I did a straight 3 week fermentation in my SS Brewtech Brewbucket.
Final result is a balanced, fruity hoppy, delicious brew with a clean finish. After 2 Crazy Hazies, I'm feeling real good!!

A great brew
This kit is excellent. I brewed this along with the Pliny kit, and my guests were pretty much split, 50/50 as to which they liked best.

I brewed this following the instructions to the letter. Dry hops in at 3 days. ....ect. White Labs yeast.

The taste is smooth with a lingering hoppy finish. it's very good. I doubt this is going to last long around the house.

Fantastic Kit- One of my best beers so far
I've been brewing for a about 2 years now and i got to say this is hands down one of the best beers I have ever brewed. I am a huge fan of NE IPA's and i got to say this one tastes very close to a few of my favorites that i can get at the liquor store. i only ended up doing the later addition of dryhopping but it still turned out great. Strongly recommend this one. Morebeer did a fantastic job with this kit!
