Muntons: Muntons IPA Bitter Toxxyc January 8th 2019

So far, so good

Brewed this kit a few weeks ago.  It was purchased for me as a gift, so I didn't have too much hope for it.  I brewed it using a better yeast (Mangrove Jack's M42 New World Strong Ale) and added a small bag of sugars to boost it (750g of maltose/dextrose mix).  This pushed OG to 1.050.  Fermented at 20°C and rested at 24°C.  Dry hopped for 4 days using a small amount (10g) of U1/108 hop pellets (local South African experimental hops).  Bottle carbonated using carbonation drops.

Colour is darker than I expected, but it does look a little bit watery.  Has a slight reddish tone to it.  Pretty clear for an unfined beer.  Flavour is excellent, and the fruitiness of the dry hopped hops came through very well.  Before dry hopping I took a sample taste from the hydrometer tube (when checking if it was done fermenting) and I was very, very surprised.  I suspect this is now my go-to "have no time to brew" tins for when BIAB isn't an option.

PS:  The recipe for this tin changed over the past few years, somewhere.  Munton's increased the IBUs and the colour, so it's a bit more bitter now.  I never tasted the first one, but this new one really isn't bad at all.  A bit more expensive than the usual kit prices, but worth every cent if you ask me.
