Product Description

The Wetpak India Pale Ale (IPA), in the style of a traditional IPA, exhibits a strong, hoppy aroma, light amber hue and a punchy, hop bitterness.

If you like a truly bitter beer that's full of flavour but not too heavy on the alcohol side, this one is for you!

Wetpak Kits are formulated as extract brewing kits. They require a little more effort but the end result is definitely worth it. To make a Wetpak beer you will require:

  • Access to a stove or hot plate (one of those little butane gas powered camp stoves will work well).
  • A pot or saucepan that is large enough to hold 6 litres of liquid.
  • A spoon for stirring.
  • A sieve, colandar lined with butter muslin or a coffee plunger.
  • 1 hour of your time to monitor your brew while it simmers on the stove.

The India Pale Ale (IPA) kit comes with:

  • 3kg of malt extract with the bittering hops already added.
  • a foil bag containing finishing hops.
  • a bag of finishing grain.
  • Instructions (To view the detailed instructions that come with the kit, click "HERE".)
  • A sachet of  Fermentis' Safale US-05 yeast so brew this one between 12°C to 25°C (optimal range is 15°C to 22°C).

*** Note: Upon opening the can, you may see what looks like candied sugar or a green crust. Don't panic, it's just the fresh hops within the can that have come to the surface of the malt. They're supposed to be there! ***

*** Makes 20 Litres ***

  1. Great juicy IPA

    Posted by Dave on 25th Sep 2021

    Love this IPA! Little on the bitter side for my liking so I will add the finishing hops very late on if not whilst I am cooling the wort down next time.
    Dry hopped with 50/50/50 azacca, galaxy, mosaic! Turned out 3.98% ABV but I’m still happy with it. Might add some booster next time to bring that up.
    Juicy AF!

  2. Best brew I have ever done

    Posted by Jerry on 6th Mar 2019

    Absolute stand out. I have done tins, BIAB and fresh wort kits and this was by far the best brew I have ever done. I added 500g of LDME and 500g of dex just because I had it lying around and I will be doing that again as it makes the body and taste superb. Well done fellas. Will be making again and forgo all others!

    Best alternative to all grain, and not far off taste wise.
    Highly recommended, add 1.2kg brew sugar for a 20L batch to reach 6.5%, fantastic hoppy flavour

  4. Top ipa

    Posted by Willie on 12th Jan 2016

    Made a west coast iipa with this as the base. Added extra biscuit and special k grain to the boil with a heap of Simcoe hops. Finished 9.6% . Full flavoured with a great hop bitterness finish. Will brew again possibly with less extras. Can't recommend higher!

  5. top shelf home brew

    Posted by t.dubbo on 26th Sep 2015

    have tried a number of ipa's and this one is right up there.plenty of flavour and loved the bitter aftertaste.will definitely try it again but may extra hop it for more bitterness and aroma.

  6. Top notch, made damn strong

    Posted by Jeff on 3rd Jul 2014

    Excellent beer one of the most flavoursome so far. I brewed to 24L and added some extra cluster hops and 500g LDME + 2000g of Dex because I already had it here and I was didn't want to dilute its alcohol content. I overshot it in that regard 8.5% in the bottle. Full flavour and can put you on your ass if you don't watch out.

  7. True to Style

    Posted by Matt on 21st Jun 2014

    Great beer, true to style!
    Also a great base for Hop Heads!
    I came pretty close to Feral Hop Hog with this as the base.

  8. My Best Brew Yet

    Posted by jdk on 3rd Mar 2014

    This came as part of the Country Brewer Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA. This was my favourite Notre Americano beer I tasted while on a recent holiday visiting Canadian relos. I made the recipe to 18l to boost flavour and alcohol. This gave a rich full flavoured IPA comparable with the best commercial beers I've tried.
