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
BEST ANSWER: Hi James - We offer a MoreHaze! Double IPA kit, if you're in the need for more ABV while maintaining the mouthfeel specific to this style.

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: It's not as easy as cutting everything in half, though that gets you in the ballpark. You can use some brewing software to scale the 5 gal recipe to 2.5 gal. BeerSmith is a common one, but you can try Brewer's Friend or BrewFather. BrewFather has a good trial period that will allow scaling; I'm sure the others do to.
Does this product include Extract? Title says All Grain, but picture lists an ingredient as Extract. Thank you

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

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

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.
I'm new to brewing and still learning. Is there an easy solution to increase the ABV without ruining the flavor or mouth feel?
Benjamin E Duncan on Dec 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are a couple easy ways to do it and they all come down to adding more fermentable sugars. For IPA people like to add a pound or two of corn sugar; this adds a percent of ABV without adding sweetness to your final gravity. Another option is to use a pound or two of Dried Malt Extract; this adds a percent of ABV and does add body and sweetness to your final gravity. The third great option is using Rice Extract which will add to ABV and give you a small amount of residual sweetness that helps to balance the extra ABV without adding as much body as the DME will.
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.

Great kit
I entered the grain bill and other matters into Brewfather so I could ensure the correct water for my system. This brewed wonderfully, and was a great hit with friends.

Tasty beer
First attempt at a hazy. It is very tasty. I have not been a big fan of the hazy beers This gave me a chance to taste the same batch over and over. I have a new appreciation for the style.

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.
