Dive into the golden waves of brewing with the Weeklong Beach Tan IPA beer kit. This isn't just a beer; it's a vacation in a bottle, a sun-soaked journey to hop heaven. Imagine yourself lounging on a sandy beach, the sun's rays warming your skin, and a cold, refreshing beer in your hand. That's the experience you'll get with every sip of this big-bodied IPA.

The Weeklong Beach Tan IPA is a robust brew, boasting a rich golden hue that mirrors a perfect beach sunset. It's a symphony of flavors, harmoniously blending the bitterness of 67 IBUs with a complex malt bill. The result? A beer that's as balanced as a beach ball on a seal's nose.

Your brewing adventure begins with 3 lbs. of Golden Light Dry Malt Extract and 4 lbs. of Pilsen Light Dry Malt Extract. These form the backbone of your brew, providing a solid base for the other flavors to dance upon.

Next, we introduce 1 lb. of Flaked Maize. This isn't just any corn; it's the beach umbrella in your brew, adding a touch of sweetness that balances the bitterness of the hops.

Then, we add 1 lb. of 2-Row Brewer's Malt, the sandcastle of your beer. It's the foundation, providing a biscuity note that complements the maize's sweetness.

To add depth and complexity, we incorporate 12 oz. of Victory Malt and 12 oz. of Caramel Malt 80L. These are the beach chairs of your brew, inviting you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the rich, caramel undertones.

Finally, we dive into the hops. With 3 oz. of Cascade Hops, 2 oz. of Centennial Hops, and 1 oz. of Saaz Hops, this brew is a hop lover's paradise. They're the ocean waves in your beer, crashing against the malt's shoreline with a refreshing bitterness that leaves you craving for more.

So, grab your brewing gear and prepare for a weeklong vacation with the Weeklong Beach Tan IPA. It's not just a beer; it's your ticket to a beachside getaway, right in the comfort of your own home.

star sanSanitizer and Spray Bottle

Good sanitation practices are absolutely fundamental to good beer making. Five Star San is the premier sanitizer you will need to make your Weeklong Beach Tan IPA beer kit. A great practice for extra protection is to have a spray bottle filled with sanitizing solution so you can re-sanitize everything that touches or goes near your beer. Sanitation is much more difficult with beer than wine because beer has a higher pH. Wine's high acidity makes bacterial infection less likely but with beer, one small mishap can cost you your batch.

When your Weeklong Beach Tan IPA is done, you will need bottles. This standard 12 ounce bottle is a good choice. You will need 54 for a 5 gallon batch. Bottles do not come with caps.

5 gallon glass carboy


The 5 gallon carboy pictured here is the standard size for any beer kit. If you have never worked with a carboy, it is important to know they should not be moved full without a carboy handle or a carrier.

The pot pictured is an 8 gallon pot that is perfect for any beer kit or a standard 5 gallon batch. 

wart-chiller.pngWort Chillers and Thermometers

Wort Chillers and Thermometers are long term investments. It is important to chill your Weeklong Beach Tan IPA wort quickly. The quicker you chill it the stronger the cold break will be. You also need a good thermometer that reads fast temperature fluctuations.  


Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your brew equipment. Once you have one you will never go without it again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it as often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. 


The fermenter pictured here is standard for a 5 gallon beer kit.


 Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often or even using as single use items is highly recommended with beer making. Hoses are very hard to clean and beer is very susceptible to bacterial infection. You do not want to risk losing your  Weeklong Beach Tan IPA over a few feet of unsanitary hose. 


Pouring your wort into a carboy can be tricky. Use a big funnel made just for the job. They even have different mesh screens to remove particles. 


It is recommended to replace airlocks often. Because they never physically touch the beer, the sanitation risk is too often overlooked. Bacteria can spread without physical contact in a closed environment and plastic stubbornly harbors bacteria.   

6.5 stopperStoppers and Bungs 

Bungs and stoppers should also be periodically replaced. They can dry out and harbor bacteria. 

 carboy brushCarboy Brush

Keeping your carboy clean before and after use is key to avoid bacterial infection in your beer. A carboy brush is a great tool to get into those nooks and crannies.

Stainless Steel Carboy and Bottle Washer is a convenient way of cleaning your bottles and/or carboys.  This high quality tool will come in handy.  Hooks up straight to your faucet with the bottle washer adapter (#4804) and puts out plenty of pressure to clean those stubborn stains from beer bottles that have been sitting around. 

bottle capperCapper

When you bottle your Weeklong Beach Tan IPA, you will need to cap your bottles. This capper is inexpensive, easy to use and does not require attaching to a counter. It has a magnet to hold the cap in place.  





Stouts in cans and bottles are sometimes nitrogenated to mimic the taste of the keg varieties, and are equipped with an apparatus known as a "widget" to help achieve this.
