Willard's English IPA - 2-Gallon Kit
The English created India Pale Ale. Hops act as a preservative in beer and using more of them helped this style of ale survive long transit times on the way to thirsty occupying troops in Asia. Of course lots of hops also make the fabulously distinctive, bitingly bitter and flavorful drink that's so popular today. This version uses plenty of earthy English hops and a British yeast strain to produce a beer with a very different profile from the American IPAs that are everywhere now.
Our convenient 2-Gallon Ingredient kits allow you to make great home brewed beer without taking over your house and kitchen with large brewing equipment. This kit makes almost a case of beer. To make it, you'll need an 8-quart or larger pot, the equipment included in our 2-Gallon Beer Making Starter Kit and a case of empty beer bottles (rinsed and sanitized empties from your favorite brewery work great!). A good kitchen scale helps too.
