Our Dark of the Moon Black IPA homebrew kit is an extension of the very successful recipe we published in 2011. This version incorporates a new grain from Briess Malting, Midnight Wheat, which provides a black color without imparting a harsh roasted bitterness which would overpower the aroma of the citrusy Cascade dry-hop. Black India Pale Ale, also called Cascadian Dark Ale, is a style which dates back to at least the 1990s and in recent years has seen a large boost in popularity due to its prominent hop character and tamed roastiness reminiscent of a German Schwarzbier. At a gravity of 1.065, the resulting ale will end up around 6.5% ABV with a moderately stiff bitterness at 50 IBU and a very dark brown color with ruby highlights around the edges. A hefty but lush ale you will enjoy in place of the ubiquitous American IPA.
