Kratomium IPA

World's first Kratom beer, customly made with fresh hops, malty amber overtones, 9 gallons of distilled store bought water and an all extract ingredient list that's made to honestly put you in a chill relaxed mood for this Labor Day Weekend. 2 of these bad boys is guaranteed to mellow you out and leave you feeling rather, in the name of Austin "Danger" Powers, Randy.

One year ago from today I made my first gallon batch with the Brewer Master General him self my old man. I've came a long way over the past year, where I used to make a simple gallon at time with a little pot, but now I have a 10 gallon temperature spicket pot with a 10ft wort chiller and a carboy for easy fermentation and easy clean up. With all that aside I have to say this is one of the most interesting batches I've done.

This is my third 5 gallon brew, ninth over all, and did something special, well actually I did a couple things special or different then the others. First and foremost I put Kratom in my beer. So the FDA is right now in September is trying to outlaw Kratom and put in as a schedule one substance, which in my opinion is ridiculous, also in my opinion I believe the FDA is a corrupt business, which then again I don't know anything about the FDA, but this is the internet and you can post anything in the hell you want. So Anyways, Kratom is a leaf from Southeast Asia that have certain Alkaloids that play on your opioid receptors that reliefs pain and leaves you feeling good.

Now for those that have never taken a opiates/pain pill before here's a good analogy that will let you know how the effects feel. If being drunk is like being in a small wooden boat on bed of warm water, taking opiates is like being in the warm soothing water. Now imagine getting drunk on that boat with a couple of girls having a good time listening to ACDC on a mid summers afternoon and the girls take of there tops and jump in the water. You just got a raise at your job and your birthday is coming up along with Christmas and your team is heading to the championships and your dog was just rewarded with "Good Boy Of The Year" award. Now I'm not saying that this will beer will be guaranteed to do that for you, but then again I'm not saying it won't.

In other words this beer is pretty awesome, it has a low ABV, but you really don't need a high one because of the Kratom effects. The beer is light and crisp with a bit of a bite of hops to it. I could go on and on about how this beer was made and the cool things I did with it, like all distilled water and all extract beer, First time I used a wort chiller and cooled the wort down in like 25 min. I don't know if you have any questions please let me know by sending me a message on the home page cool?

    Number guide to beer color, 0 - 40 Yellow into Black

    4ish Gallons

    The finial amount of beer I got at the end of the whole brewing process

The best part about brewing this beer was my good buddy Andy Muns came over and actually he's the reason the beer is called Musingen. We figured it's a German beer and he's German and this was his first time brewering so we just named the beer after him.
