This beer ingredient kit is from one of our favorite employees.  Okay, we don't actually play favorites but Jarrod Major is a great employee.  He loves Belgian Dubbels. His last name is Major. So of course we had to name his recipe Double Major.

Belgian Dubbels are rich, malty complex beers. The classic Belgian "funk" from the yeast combined with the darker crystal malts creates notes of plums and raisins and dried cherries.

It is a deep reddish, moderately strong beer with a nice alcohol warmth that is smooth and sneaky. The medium-full body adds the to balance of the finished beer.

This beer will be good at a young age but given the time it deserves it will continue to develop and gain complexity over several months.

High Gravity's extract kits use only the highest quality ingredients and are assembled when you order so they contain the freshest possible ingredients. Each kit makes 5 gallons.

Extract kits are recommended for beginning brewers.

Extract kits contain malt extract along with specialty grains and is by far the most common kit type. Extract kits rely on the malt extract to provide the fermentable sugars and the grains are primarily for color and flavor. This is the most common type of beer kit and is recommended for those who are just getting started or those that want to make a great tasting beer without a lot of effort.

BIAB Kits require additional brewing knowledge.

Brew-in-s-Bag eliminates the extract and completely rely on the grains to produce the fermentable sugars needed to make the beer.

BIAB uses one vessel to steep the mash and to boil the wort with the entire volume of liquid added at the start of the mash.

This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt+ pot is needed to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer). It is recommended that you have some experience brewing extract kits before attempting all-grain.

This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt+ pot is needed to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer). It is recommended that you have some experience brewing extract kits before attempting all-grain.

All-grain kits eliminate the extract and completely rely on the grains to produce the fermentable sugars needed to make the beer. Additional equipment is required, such as a mash tun and hot liquor tank. This method also requires that the entire volume be boiled so a 40qt pot is recommended to boil the wort (pre-fermented beer).

All-grain brewing is the most advanced method for brewing beer and is recommended for those that have had some experience brewing extract kits.


We recommend liquid yeast for our High Gravity kits but if you would prefer dry yeast, you can select it instead. Liquid yeasts provide a wider range of flavor profiles but are very susceptible to temperature variations. This can cause problems when shipping during very hot weather. Dry yeast, however, will not be damaged in transport because of weather conditions.
You may also want to choose your own yeast. If so, you can select the "No Yeast" Option.

Ice Pack:
When shipping liquid yeast, an ice pack is highly recommended, especially during hot weather to help ensure the viability of the liquid yeast. There is an additional cost of $1.00. High Gravity will not guarantee the viability of liquid yeast shipped without a cold pack.

Review Comments: My first brewing attempt, now I'm afraid this is going to be more an obsession than a hobby. As good as this tastes after 3 weeks, I look forward to trying it after a few months on the shelf.

Review Comments: It took a few months for this beer to really develop, but it is one of the best beers that I have ever brewed. Many recipes that I have seen for Belgian Doubles are darker and stronger than the BJCP style guildelines. This one is just right.

Review Comments: I was not too impressed with this kit at all. The flavor is just not there (ABV came in at 7.2%). I have been brewing HG kits for years and this is the first one that I have been disappointed with. Nice try though.
