Gladfield Black IPA


Gladfield’s Black IPA recipe, scaled down to a 6 gallon all-grain/grainfather recipe pack.

Black IPA is a relatively new beer style roughly defined as a beer with IPA-level hopping, relatively high alcohol and a distinct dark malt character.

This particular recipe has a New Zealand twist, with all kettle hops being New Zealand varieties and then adding some New Zealand grown American hops in the dry hop.

The following is based on 70% efficiency:
Original Gravity: 1.075
Color (EBC): 75.6
Alcohol by Volume: 7.8%
IBU: 67.6

The full recipe pack contains all of the malt and individually vacuum sealed hop additions for a fermentation volume of 23L (6 gallons). The expected final packaging volume is 19L (5 gallons).

Want to make this kit your own? Purchase just the grain bill and hop the beer as you please.

Please note, kit does not include yeast. We recommend either:
2x US-05
2x BRY-97
2x M44
WLP001 with an appropriate sized starter
