Our Irish Red Ale recipe is similar to a big Amber Ale, but is so unusual it does not really fit within any category. This red ale contains Aromatic malt to provide malty flavor and aroma. Features dark Crystal malts, including Special B, and a pinch of Roasted Barley for a deep, red color and a very distinctive caramel flavor. Our Irish Red Ale is one of our most popular ingredient kits about which we receive a lot of positive feedback from satisfied customers. If you're going to be venturing into new realms of taste discovery, this is a winning ticket we can solidly recommend!

Very Good Red Ale
Pitched the yeast a month ago and force carbonated. The beer has very good color and malt flavor. It’s continuing to improve with tim and is a very good Red Ale. It’s earned a spot in the rotation.

This was my first brew in many months and I wanted to start with a kit. Eveything was there and batch is in carboy bubbling away. Once I have a taste then I will know more

One of my favorites!
I have made this kit several times and I believe it will be permanent on one of my taps. A favorite with company that doesn't last very long. I have used several different types of yeast but prefer Nottingham. A big kit with big flavor.

Great beer
I made this beer several times and has always been great. This batch is still brewing but I'm sure it will be great also. I made the extract kit only because I ordered it by mistake instead of the full grain. I've make full grain now but both kits are great!

Relaxing Experience Brewing this batch of Irish Red!
Shipment was received from MoreBeer in 3 days. I brewed that night! 7 days in primary fermenter, then racked to secondary for 7 more days. Fermented at 65F. At bottling, the Irish Red looked clear, with lovely aroma. Currenty maturing at 76F post bottling....can’t wait to start popping caps in 2 more weeks!

Irish Red Ale
My past experience with Irish red has been excellent. I have tried another online distributor who shall remain nameless but they are from the Midwest. I thought that the more beer was better tasting. It is currently fermenting so I can’t give a definitive answer yet. Give me a couple of weeks and the answer will be in
