This kit was easy to use and brew. The beer is currently in secondary fermentation. The recipe was spot on, and the taste at the time I transferred it to secondary was also spot on with the 90-Minute IPA I have in the fridge. The grains and hops were well-packaged and fresh. I added the hops directly to the boil since after 90 minutes the first "toss" would have disintegrated even if in a hop bag. This caused a little more trub formation, but it settled out nicely. I used 3 packs of US-05 for my yeast. Can't wait to have a finished beer!
I highly recommend this kit for "hopheads" and I'm always impressed with the quality of the ingredients from Farmhouse Brewing Supply. The flavor of this beer is great and it's strong, but perfect! I used Giga Yeast British Ale Yeast #1, GY011, and it turned out great.
Your comment about having to use DME to offset the inefficiency of BIAB is misleading. BIAB yields very high efficiency if done correctly. Set your mill to a small gap when crushing grains for BIAB.
I have purchased this kit 2x now. The first time i purchased I used two packets of the dry US04 yeast. It turned out really good. I did BIAB and added 1lb of light DME to offset the inefficiency of the biab method. The second time I brewed this I used the white labs wlp007 yeast. It turned out amazing. I highly recommend using the wlp007 yeast and pitch a large starter. You will not be disappointed!
