John C. Maier of Rogue Brewing Company, Newport Oregon has been an avid homebrewer since 1982. In the Fall of 1986, he decided to turn his passion into a job and attended the Siebel Institute of Technology, graduating from their 50th course in Brewing Technology. The Alaskan Brewery in Juneau hired John as Assistant BrewMaster in March of 1987. In 1988 he won the prestigious American Homebrewer's Association Homebrewer of the Year award. In May 1989 he left Alaska Brewery, and that same month walked in on the very first brew at Rogue Ales Brewery in Newport, Oregon. He has brewed over thirty million pints of beer for Rogue since.

Rogue beers have won too many awards to list, and the brewery consistently receives the highest level of critical and acclaim. In our opinion, Rogue makes some of the most original and best beers anywhere because John continuously experiments to expand and refine his brewing creativity. His commercial brewing for Rogue reflects his homebrewing background, in that Rogue produces an amazing variety of beers - well over 20 different regular styles plus additional seasonal specialities. Their beers are always intense, distinctive and literally packed with flavor. We know of no other hands-on BrewMaster who makes as much beer commercially (Rogue brews 1550 gallons per batch), yet still finds time to develop 20 gallon pilot batches for new, commercial beer products. In order to insure that his pilot brews run as quickly and consistently as possible, Rogue recently purchased a MoreBeer! Model 2050 Professional Series BrewSculpture™ System with all available options, plus a 24-gallon MoreBeer! Stainless Conical Fermenter with cooling option. This industry-standard brewing system now serves as the product developmental platform for all new Rogue beers. Visit Rogue in either Newport or Portland, Oregon, or online at www.rogue.com.

Imperial India Pale Ale ("I2PA") Recipe We were ecstatic when John offered us his famous Imperial India Pale Ale recipe as an ingredient kit. I2PA is a malty beer that is radically hopped with an intense aroma and hop bitterness. You can think of I2PA as an IPA on steroids. Beside the extract, the only other ingredient is a copious amounts of hops. No steeping grains! We suggest you buy a bottle of Rogue I 2 PA and see how your version matches up against the original. John recommends using White Labs California Yeast, WLP001.

  • Makes 5 gallons
  • Estimated Original Gravity: 1.076-80
  • SRM (Color Range): 11
  • IBUs: 58-62
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 7.6%

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.

I found this a difficult beer to make due to the high OG and the amount of malt extract to boil. After a month in the bottle it is clean and malty with a little hop aroma.

I tasted side by side with Rogue and it doesn't taste very similar. The Rogue is lighter and shows the hops flavor with the malt adding complexity. The kit turned out darker, sweeter, and maltier. I would have liked the kit to have more bittering hops to not have it turn out so malty.

I started with 3 gallons of water. I changed the 2nd addition of the 6 lbs of malt extract to 20 minutes to try to make the beer lighter. It took an extra 15 minutes to get it back to boil. I topped it off to 5.5 gallons. I used Pacman yeast (used by Rogue) and a 2 step starter. Fermentation started at 60* F and raised over 16 days. Secondary for 4 days. OG measured at 1.081 and FG measured at 1.018. I used 2.2 oz of corn sugar for bottling.

Good and Simple Double IPA

My first IPA...
This IPA got me hooked on the style... for better and for worse! My brother had ventured further into the beer world than i had and i was the home brewer - wanted to honor him by making a few gallons of an IPA so i grabbed this one (the great guys at the Los Altos shop directed me toward) and haven't looked back since. Go for it, you'll be happy! As suggested, grab a bottle from the store and compare.

Super simple with great results! If you want a quick brew day this is the kit for you. Extract and hops, that's it!

Excellent Value/Requires large pot
This is a great value for a higher alcohol specialty beer from Rouge especially since the Imperial Indian Pale Ale is not available in my area.
I didn't realize with this beer being 7.6% there would be 12lbs. of malt extract. This will require you to split boil or get a bigger pot. The 4.5 gallon pot was not big enough to do a partial boil without a lot of carmelization.

Good Double IPA
This beer turned out good but needed a little more late hop addition. I have bought better ipa's from MB.
