I am still only at the stage of making my beers from kits, so I accept that it may be that the answer to my question is "you can't" but I figure that if I don't ask that will definitely be the answer
My wife recently tasted and was very impressed by a Dark IPA and so I would like to try and make some for her. However, none of the manufacturers of kits that I have access to make one.
So, is it possible to simply adapt a kit. For example, could I use a 'normal' IPA kit and just add some unhopped dark malt to it? Or is this likely to produce some sort of unholy abomination?
If so, is there some other way that I might get to the desired result?
Any suggestions gratefully received ...
