Brewing a Northern Brewer Grapefruit Pulpin Kit

Northern Brewer Grapefruit Pulpin

I was in a meeting in the conference room at my office and we could see a delivery guy walking around aimlessly with a package in his hands. One of my friends outside pointed him to my desk and I stepped out to sign for it.

I came back in and everyone said “what did you get, beer?” And they all laughed. Little did they know it wasn’t just beer it was Northern Brewer Grapefruit Pulpin a homebrew kit.

Watch the video of me brewing above and if you have any questions leave comments below. Stay tuned for updates on this brew including tasting and kegging. Cheers!

From the Northern Brewer site:
This bright showcase of apricot, peach, cantaloupe and lemon dives into crisp grapefruit flavor. A perfect complement to citrusy hop aroma, this IPA has stripes of ruby red grapefruit and hoppy, lingering bitterness.
An escape from the winter blues or the perfect complement to a bright sunny summer afternoon, each pint of Pulpin’ is like a fresh Florida grapefruit grove bottled up into a single refreshing serving.

About Jason M

Texas Style - Having grown up down south, I've grown an appreciation for the "bigger is better" mantra. Bigger and bolder flavor is something I crave in my beers. Some people are hop-heads, all they drink are IPA's and other hoppy beers. Others are big on wheat beers. Some like it dark. Me? I'm an all-the-above kind of guy. I've had a love for all varieties since I was young and that has not changed. Good beer is good beer.

I'm constantly seeking out the latest and greatest new variety, because despite having an old-time favorite beer, drinking the same old flavors over and over gets old. That being said, I've got to try something new, explore my boundaries. After all, variety is the spice of life, no?

Favorite Beers - Unibroue La Fin du Monde, Founders Backwoods Bastard, Schlafly Oak Aged Barleywine

  1. Just an FYI – The reason I dubbed it Midnight Oil is because I literally burned the midnight oil brewing this. I got home much later than expected on a Saturday and my brew day plans were pretty much shot. Thankfully though, because it was Saturday I was able to brew late into the evening. Hence the name. Cheers!
