I got my kits today from AHS, the IPA extract kit has 8lb ex pale extract and 1 lb crystal 75L malt. I like IPA but they seem to have a wide range of bitterness. this kit calls for a 60 min boil with 1 oz. of Newport hops at 60 min, 1 0z Falconer's Flight at 15 min, and dry hop with 1 0z of Cascade. It's supposed to finish at about 5.6% abv but I can't find the IBUs anywhere. from what I'v been able to determine I think I like IBU about 45. I am just finishing a keg I made from a coopers hopped extract kit and it is too bitter with a bitter lingering aftertast. With these hop additions can anyone determint the IBUs and how to keep it in the 40 range.

I ordered an extra oz of Amarillo to dry hop with the Cascade. What do you think?

if your boil size is 3 gallons, it should come out to around 46ibu's. add some corn sugar and it will also bring it down a touch more. but 6 ibu's, you probably wont be able to tell the difference honestly.


mine, i did a 5 gallon boil size, and held its hand for 60 minutes, so my ibu's were higher.
yeah I'm a masochist.

love Amarillo, you can do Amarillo at flame-out and dry hop with the cascade. that could be nice.

I just got this kit as well, and was curious about the ibus as well, as newport is supposed to be pretty pungeant... I entered the values into beer calculus, and the ibus came to about 49 or so...

I am more a fan of hop flavor and aroma rather than extreme bitterness(and yes I know 49 is nowhere "extreme")...I recalulated to 35min boil and this brought it down around 41 I believe..I am also thinking of adding addtional Falconer's Flight for aroma...they are supposed to have great citrus character, and I have heard they are fantastic...let us know what you decide and how it goes!

I bought this kit too but I'm adding summit, cascade, and amarillo, as well as an extra pound of corn sugar at the end of the boil. Shooting for more bitterness, aroma, and an extra kick.

I got the same kit, but spiced it up a bit. Didn't enter anything into beersmith, and my hydro is broke, so I'm flying blind on it. but I was trying to up it more to an IIPA. Added 1 oz of each: Newport at 60, 50; Columbus at 45; Falconers Flight at at 14, 13, 10; Cascade at 3. I have some Citra too, and may drop hop with that depending on how the sample tastes. It's still in the primary, so who the heck knows how it'll end up - either be great or taste like grass, I suppose. But I had fun brewing blind!
