Description

Our Irish Red Ale recipe is similar to a big Amber Ale, but is so unusual it does not really fit within any category. 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. This 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! Our best selling kit.

It was nothing special. It is different, just not to my liking.

Irish Red Ale
This turned out very good. A very dark red color with all the Irish Red flavor. It's been getting even better with age.

My signature brew
Great tasting easy making Ale. Great tasting malt with a nice touch of hops. My friends and fellow home brewers all ask for this one.
September 20, 2017
A+++ Would brew again
I've made a few beer kits and this is the best one yet. Color is nice, lots of flavor from the dark grains without a lot of bitterness. It ended up a little cloudy, but I think I failed to cool the wort down fast enough. Creamy texture with a nice layer of foam on top.

I used a single packet of S-05 yeast, worked great!

Best kit I've made
I completely forgot about this beer. I made this beer in August. Kegged it in March. I have made probably 10 home brews of different styles and this is the best I have had. I would recommend this kit to anyone who wants a nice malty easy to drink beer.

Talk about getting you money's worth!!!
Love this kit. Very healthy grain portions and a simply wonderful end product. Its the one I grab first every time! I make a lot of beer, but I make the MOST of this one...Superb product!
