Panhead Supercharger Clone


A clone recipe of Panhead’s Supercharger, scaled to a 6 gallon all-grain/grainfather recipe pack.

Supercharger is an iconic kiwi beer and has recently been voted the winner in GABS’ NZ’s 100 Hottest Craft Beers.

According to Panhead, “Hops are where it starts for the born-again craft head and Supercharger APA is where Panhead delivers. This is an all-American show with Centennial, Citra and Simcoe overwhelming your nose, kicking you in the taste buds and departing with more bitterness than a Palm Springs divorce. It’s a seriously addictive combination.”

The following is based on 75% efficiency:
Original Gravity: 1.066
Color (EBC): 14.2
Alcohol by Volume: 6.5%
IBU: 65

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).

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