Haze Craze IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Haze Craze IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

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

This IPA recipe is our take on the hazy North East IPA, also known as New England IPA or 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.

I must have screwed something up. My original gravity reading came in at 1.030!! I pitched the yeast anyway, which took off around 16 hours. It's been about three days and my brew looks like a milky mess! This is the first time this has happened. I use an online mash and sparge calculator for my water and temp levels. All my temps were good, I'm thinking maybe I used too much water? Any input is appreciated! Thanks.
Rick Hausauer on Nov 26, 2018
Recipe says dry hop days 3-7 and 7-10.. does that mean to dry hop For from day 3 until day 7? Or dry hop for 3-7 days?
Douglas w Tripp on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've made this beer four times now. It's a favorite in my extended family. I have tried it both ways. It works fine either way, but I think the the beer has a juicier, slightly less hop forward finish if you use the later approach. I consider day 1 the day when fermentation actually starts. May take a day or two. I let it ferment from day 1 to 3, then add the first dry hop in the primary from days 3 to 7. Then rack to secondary and add the second dry hop from days 7 to 10. Also, I don't normally use strainer bags, but in this case, I find it helps. I keg and, with all of the hop additions, I find it easier to get a clean beer into the keg. Hope this helps. Haze Craze is a delicious beer. Enjoy!
What is the preferred yeast for this brew?
Bryan Ferguson on Mar 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used White Labs WLP095 Burlington Ale Yeast and got great results You could substitute some of the English style ale yeasts and get similar results. You have to make a starter.
Anyone try and spike it with 1lb of corn sugar to get the ABV to around 7?
James Burns on Sep 12, 2018

1 Ounce of whole cone only? Rest are pellets?
Adam on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually it's 2 oz of Mosaic whole cone hops added at flamout, rest are pellet hops

First timer here. I bought this 5 gallon recipe kit but only have a 5.5 gallon boil kettle and 3.5 gallon fermenter (both Ss Brewtech). I am doing BIAB so I am wondering if I should cut the recipe in half to brew 2.5 gallons? Any help is appreciated.
Samuel C Tozour on Sep 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Your fermenter is your restricting factor. You would only be able to ferment 2.5 gallons of beer so no need to brew more than that ... otherwise you would just pour it out.
How do I get the egg yolk color that some people are getting? What type of yeast are you using?
James Cruz on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used WY1318 - Wyeast London Ale III and do not use irish moss or whirlfloc tablets, color was spot on and very hazy.
How do I get the egg drop color that some people are getting? What yeast are you using?
James Cruz on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Water chemistry has an impact on the softness and mouth feel , I added gypsum and calcium chloride to the water and for yeast I use wy'east London ale 3 1316 cheers!
Hi, I dry hopped the 1st round on day 3 then dry hopped 2nd round on day 7. On which day should I closed transfer into keg for carbonation? I was planning on kegging on day 14 then force carbonating to serve at a party on the weekend. Is this pushing it to fast? Will fermentation be done? WIll the beer be too green still?

I have brewed this beer once before and left it in fermenter for 3 weeks before transferring to keg and carbonating for 3 days. That brew was great...before turning completely oxidized 2 weeks later and tasting HORRIBLE. I believe the culprit that time was me not cleaning and sanitizing the keg properly. Thanks for the help and feedback! Erik
erik legenhausen on Mar 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Erik - It is hard to believe 14 days is all that's needed, but as you noted they oxidize quickly, simply the nature of the style. I think you'll be surprised how fresh it tastes, make sure to use a healthy pitch.
What's the best fermentation temperature for it? I'll be using Wyeast London Ale III (PS I'll be using the Extract version but I can't ask questions there for some reason)
James Cruz on Aug 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The recommended fermentation temperature for this kit is 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Missed all the numbers - Hit the Taste!
This is an exceptional kit and perhaps the best NE IPA I've had. Made the final hop addition after the boil and cooling to 170*F while Whirlpooling and holding at 170*F for 20 minutes. Then crashed to 68*F and fermented with a starter using Imperial A04. Dry hopped per Recipe Tips, Method 1 in the instructions. Pretty easy brew...I'll definitely hit my numbers next time!

Try it!
Great, and cheap, bier. I can make it in 22 days.

Ferment first 12 days, then the two editions of dry hop are done in the last 10 days. Add flavoring to the keg at kegging for a little pizazz. (Try grapefruit or mango).

Wifey digs it, her girlfriends dig it, and neighbors come over with chilled glasses when they see my garage door opening.

Great kit
I would have given this kit 5 stars except I would have preferred cone hops to pellets for the dry hopping. Looking forward to tasting it soon. It smells great.

Really good juicy New England style IPA. This was my first all grain brew. The directions are a little too non specific but with the help of a brewing app and advice from a seasoned brewer it came out perfect. I would highly recommend this kit.
