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!

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. 😁
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.
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.
Just to double check. Do these kits include hops or just grains?

Really good recipe
I highly recommend this recipe! I brewed this using RO water with the Pale Ale water profile from Bruin Water. That was good but what really made this stand out was using Bells house yeast harvested from Two Hearted cans. If you can get ahold of that and build up the slurry I would recommend fermenting this at 64F. The Bells yeast pairs really well with this kit. VERY VERY VERY well! Another option for the Bells yeast is to order it from their brewery site due to exclusivity contracts with Imperial Yeast. Either way if you can pair this with Bells house yeast do yourself a huge favor and DO IT!

Excellent Clone / West Coast Pale
It took a few tries at this clone to really get it down in terms or water chems and mash temps but my 3rd attempt hit it out of the park. This is a solid recipe. I added 8 oz of melanoidin as I saw it in a few other versions of this clone which I think adds some needed depth if you mash cooler and use Safale-05 for a crispy finish with that west coast flavor but this all grain kit is baller. I prefer it over the real deal now.

Thanks More Beer for putting this awesome kit together!

Different Brands of 2 Row
May not be a big deal, but the kit called for 11 lbs of 2 row. What I received was was 10 lbs of one brand and 1 lb of another. It was only 10% of total weight. Like I said may not be a big deal but I would have liked to have received all the same brand. Hopefully next time that will happen.

Excellent NE IPA
In my opinion this is a great offshoot of the New England IPA. Love the hops flavor and light enough to be a great summer beer.

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.

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.
