Cascadian Dark Ale – Black IPA – 5 Gallon Recipe Kit


Cascadian Dark Ale  extract recipe kit 5 gallons


This Cascadian Dark Ale (aka Black IPA or India Black Ale) derives dark color from Midnight Wheat, a black, huskless grain which yields all the dark color without the harsh bitterness usually associated with roasted or black grains. Five different hops lend their flavor and aroma to this brew, leaving a well-balanced bitterness and citrus-like flavor to complement the malty backbone.
