WTF do I buy ????
From my online store here’s what I can get.
Dry malt extracts.
From what I understand they are generic:
As for the hops (pellets)
Cascade (I saw this one mentioned a number of times in the IPA recipes)
East Kent Goldings
As for the yeast
, I think I’m OK. I found this:
Wyeast – Brewer’s Choice: American Ale
Can someone help me pick out the correct ingredients?
IPAs don't require a cold fermentation. They are ales, which are supposed to ferment in the 60-70°F range. Your basement should be fine for any of them.
Check out northernbrewer.com
for ingredients. They also have some good recipe kits, with numerous IPA recipes. The website has user reviews on a lot of the kits, so you can see what's good and what isn't.
Cascade hops are a must in IPAs. Great aroma and flavor.
But honestly check into the recipe kits especially if you're brewing for the first time. It's a good way to learn the initial process. Plus you can always modify them.
I just bottled my red ale two days ago. I'm kegging my English Bitter this weekend. It's going to be the first time I force carbonate a beer.
