This will be a beer brewed without a kit. We have ordered the malt, hops and yeast to follow a recipe for an American-style IPA. We’re using Maris Otter base malt with small amounts of Munich and Crystal malts. The hops are Apollo and Bravo – both a very high in alpha acids – and this is the first time we have brewed with dried hops rather than pellets.
