Heady Topper Double IPA Clone - All-Grain Recipe Kit Heady Topper Double IPA Clone - All-Grain Recipe Kit Our clone version of the famous Vermont IIPA is a hops delivery truck in a glass. With huge hop notes of fruity citrus and pine, firm bitterness, and a finish that satisfies, this beer defines Double IPA. With over a full pound of hops, this beer will have you swooning at the first sip!

The last hop addition is a whirlpool addition. Add the hops to the hot wort after the flame goes out, chill to 170-180ºF if possible, and hold (steep) the hops for 20 minutes, ideally in the 180ºF degree range, then thoroughly chill the wort as usual. Because of the huge amount of hops, this recipe is designed to make 5.5 gallons of finished wort at the end of the boil. Increase your boil volume as needed to allow for these trub losses. You may wish to strain the wort before adding to the fermenter by pouring through a sanitized strainer or line a bucket fermenter with a sanitized paint strainer bag and then lift out after transferring the wort to remove many of the solids.

The Vermont Ale Yeast is part of the flavor profile of this beer. No other yeast strain will be the same, but if dry yeast is required, US-05 will also make a good beer. A 2L yeast starter or two packages of Vermont Ale Yeast is highly recommended

All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
