Zombie Dust® Clone - Soulless Hop Pale Ale (All Grain)

Zombie Dust® Clone - Soulless Hop Pale Ale (All Grain)

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

Run!  The walking dead hops are here!  The only thing different between this and real zombies though, is that you'll be running towards this beer, rather than running away!  Malty with a huge Citra® hop presence, this is our clone of the nationally known and loved Zombie Dust Pale Ale by 3 Floyds Brewing Co!  

This recipe falls right in line with the original featuring Munich, Crystal 60L, and Carapils malts along with fresh 2-row base malt to create a smooth malt backbone with a nice mouthfeel.  The only hop in this beautiful beer is Citra®, but there's a whole lot of it!  With half a pound per 5.5 gallon batch, the Soulless Hop Pale Ale is a prime example of just how amazing Citra® hops truly are!

I have tried this kit several places and yours, with separated grains is the best taste and organized ( not all in one bag like others)

Brewed the extract version before. May have been the best beer I ever made. Need to make it again in all grain.

What batch size is this kit designed for, 5 or 5.5 gallons?
Mark Stuart on Jan 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We always start with a seven gallon boil and boil down to 5.5 gallons to pitch and ferment and we really enjoy this brew. The post fermentation volume sometimes varies a bit depending on how much the angels take. 😁
It says to dry hop during primary fermentation, but the back says after fermentation. Which is it???
Thomas Manning on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Either will produce good results. Active fermentation will interact will the hops during primary and produce different flavors (will you notice it, maybe...). I've done this kit many times and did it both ways (2 days vs 5-7 days dry hop), and did not notice significant differences. Hope this helps.
I don’t see it noted, what are the recommended yeast(s)?
Tracy Riley on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The recommended yeasts are California ale wlp001 for white labs and American ale wy1056 for wyeast. If you are looking for dry yeast then I would use the US-05 American ale yeast.
Just to double check. Do these kits include hops or just grains?

Citra yumm
This is an outstanding clone of a great tasting IPA. Single hop (Citra)
But plenty of it throughout the brewing to give the beer an overload of a fantastic flavor.

Soulless Hop Pale Ale is a winner ??
Brewed this kit, extract, on 07/08, using Imperial Flagship yeast. Three weeks in SS conical. Then dry hopped with Citra for 3 days. Kegged and forced carbonated. Just poured my first glass on 08/13. Very tasty and not overpowering on the hops. Higher abv then expected, at 6.6%. Wonderful citrus aroma and taste. Perfect for a hot summer day. Pretty hazy though, not sure why, I used Whirlfloc. But it seems like the brewing trend nowadays is for hazy. What do I know? Will definitely brew this again.

I love it . Easy to brew.

SO GOOD (Especially as a Hazy IPA)
I brewed this with Omega Labs Tropical IPA and added all the dry hops just after high krausen. The beer was epic! SO GOOD!

Brewed this kit a couple weeks ago and turned out very close to the original. Would recommend because I'll brew it again.

So far so good
I just bottled this yesterday but the initial taste is good. Fermentation started with 24 hours and lasted about 10 days. Mine came out at bit higher in original gravity and final alcohol content was 7.1%. I dry hopped for 5 days and bottled even though we had an island wide power outage because we have people showing up for the holidays.

Love it.
Great beer I think another oz of Citra at the 10 minute mark would make it even better but I love hops.
