HOPS! That's what you get with Brain Eater, modeled after the famous Zombie Dust beer by 3 Floyds. Hop-bursting with Citra hops at the end of the boil and a big dry hop addition bring out all the flavor of the hops without a ton of bitterness. The perfect beer for the impending zombie apocalypse!

  • Q and A

It's the beer of the living dead! This Zombie Dust Clone is loaded with Citra hops that invigorate the senses and engage the palate. A very light first wort hop addition keeps the bitterness down, while hop-bursting the beer and aggressively dry hopping with Citra hops give it a very pronounced hop flavor and aroma. The bite of Citra is offset by crystal 60L and melanoidin malts, which contribute body, sweetness and character to the beer, A touch of carapils for body and foam stability is included as well, perfectly balancing this beer. Delicious and inviting, Brain Eater Pale Ale is sure to please your hopheaded friends. It is the perfect beer for the impending zombie apocalypse!

Best beer I've brewed
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
After searching in vain for Zombie Dust I figured I'd just try making it myself. I found this site and bought the all-grain kit. Let me tell you, forget about Zombie Dust; this Brain Eater is the best beer I've brewed and the best pale ale I've ever had. I let it age a month after bottling, and it was excellent. It's now been two months and the beer has mellowed and gotten even better! I'll definitely be making this beer again. Highly recommend to anyone who likes pale ales; you won't be disappointed!
Owner Response:Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for leaving such awesome feedback! Keep up the BREW work, Sean! Cheers! Bryan

Purchased kit while passing through Indy. First time using Citra and G.F. and am very pleased. Great combination of malts and a boat-load of Citra. Never had a Zombie Dust so I can't compare. All I know is it kicked way too fast and it is definitely in my rotation. I used Wyeast PC-1217 West Coast Ale.

Great Kit and Recipe

GF has always taken care of me. This is a great kit and recipe. Citra bomb is right! I'm a hop head through and through, and this delivers. Brewing kits give us introductions to our own creations, and I have ideas with this one to build on my own taste. I mashed low to increase fermentability, used conan yeast to bring out the hop flavor, and added 1/2 pound corn sugar to continue drying out the beer. The melanoidin and carapils help with the mouth feel. In the future, I plan to eliminate the crystal and up the Munich, as well as swap some 2 row for Maris otter/pale ale/pearl at around 50%. I also want to diversify the hops. Maybe mosaic/columbus/?..Thank you GF for showing us how to brew what we like!
