PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I understand that this kit is for all-grain brewers and requires specialized equipment and knowledge to brew. East Coast Hoppers Kits include Instructions and BeerSmith files to help determine strike and sparge volumes and temperatures. Other kits may require brewing software or a knowlege of brewing calculations to determine water volumes and temperatures. It is up to the brewer to determine if this kit is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.

In Brooklyn, we have a very soft, neutral water profile. For the West Coast version, we recommend calcium sulfate, and we aim to stay around 150ppm or less. For the NEIPA, we recommend calcium chloride additions, and we aim to stay under 300ppm chloride. You know your water best, so adjust
