    I’ve bought a razorback kit for a friend who likes hoppy beers.

    He’s never brewed and I’m going over to give him a hand and lend him the equipment needed.

    Anyone recommend any extra dry hops to boost the hoppyness? Or should I leave the kit as it is??

    I did one as is and it was a good kit.

    If you haven't tried it before, I suggest making it up as per the instructions and then you will be able to tell if you need to adjust anything when you brew it again.

    (and remember to keep the little mesh bag as they are really useful over the end of the siphon when bottling. I have about 3 or 4 in my brewing kit box)

    Thanks Pavros,
    I’ll try it ‘as is’ then.
    Hope it turns out well for him (he could be a convert to home brewing lol)

    Have a look at the other Razorback IPA thread in the review section. Mine hasn't turned out too well, though I'm giving it more time.

    The general feeling though is that the priming sugar supplied with the kit (100g) is inadequate to achieve the carbonation required. I think someone suggested that 150g would be nearer the mark. You might want to check this out before you get to that stage, rather than be disappointed at your first tasting!

    Razorback is certainly one I'd do as it comes first before thinking of tweaking.
