India Black Ale

£22.00 incl VAT

The wolf in sheep’s clothing!    The India Black Ale is a newer addition to the craft beer scene – only becoming an official beer style in 2015.  The dark and dreamy looking ale is actually a bright and hoppy IPA masked in a cloak of darkness.


Perhaps we should say ‘the arctic wolf in black sheep’s clothing’….

A beer is only as good as its ingredients.

If you’re going to spend the time to craft your own bespoke beers, it makes sense to start with the very best.
That’s why this recipe pack has the finest grains, all freshly milled by us just before shipping.   We use top quality hops from around the world compressed into a pellet form for easy handling and less liquid absorption. We then vacuum seal it all to ensure you receive the freshest possible ingredients.

Yeast is a more important component of your beer than many people realise. The yeast is really what makes your beer. Different strains of yeast also contribute different flavours to a batch of beer.  Our yeast is sourced from a special craft-beer yeast developer.  Their range of premium dried yeast has been specifically designed for craft beer styles; ensuring consistent and flavourful results with every batch.

Each recipe pack will make you 12, 330ml bottles of beer.

Each pack contains

  • Detailed instruction booklet
  • Quick reference guide with notes section
  • Freshly milled grains
  • American Hops
  • Specialty dried yeast
  • Brewer’s Sugar
  • Kettle Finings (a seaweed derivative) which helps to clarify your beer
  • 2 x no-rinse sanitiser sachets
  • 12 printed beer labels
