Muntons Gold IPA Beer Kit. 3Kg full malt kit. Keeping troops supplied with fresh beer in the British East Indies proved to be a problem. The long journey by sea spoilt ordinary beers so a special beer was brewed to survive the journey. India Pale Ale was brewed to a high alcoholic strength to keep bacteria at bay during the voyage. On arrival the beer was watered down to normal strength for the troops. Officers, of course, had access to the non-diluted version. This kit gives you the choice to brew the "troops tipple" ABV 4.5% or the "higher ranks reserve" ABV 6%. Serve at 13C.
Makes 40 pints. Requires 1Kg sugar for the higher strength version.
