Easy Drinking
Took about three months to age properly, probably because I sparged and added some finishing sugar which increased fermentation time. Final ABV was about 6.5 percent and everybody really likes the beer. Worth the extra wait!

More like a brown ale
My all-grain batch is almost porter looking. Very malty, low bitterness, dark.

Buy this now!
This kit is amazing! I hit all my numbers dead on except for the final volume came in just under 5 gallons. The malty flavor paired to the light hoppiness makes for an awesome beer. My friends and family loves it and it will definitely be on my rotation from now on!

Very Happy With This Brew
I made had a handful of 'issues' while brewing this yet the beer still came out great.
I fermented with Safale 05. Initial ferment temp was 74 (by mistake) but dropped it down to 68 for the remainder. I bottled using CO2 levels of 2.6. If bottling I strongly recommend a good 2-4 weeks before you crack the first beer. I couldn't wait and opened on at 7 days. Way better now that I have waited.

Brewed this for a friend and fell in love. It has great flavor. I'm on my 20th batch and this is one of my favorites to go back and brew.

Awesome beer!
Reds are my favorite so I have made this beer from extract and from all grain, this was also my first ever all grain batch. All grain takes the cake by a mile. The color is better in all grain, the extract version came out very dark and tasted sweeter, the taste is much more distinct and developed in the all grain recipe as well. I only fermented this one once and did not feel it is necessary to dry hop at all. This was my friends and families favorite one I have brewed thus far and they want me to make it again ASAP!
I highly reccomend making this one its worth the time!

Great Beer!
This beer is phenomenal! It's very malty and has a slight nuttiness to it. I brought a keg of this up to the mountains over New Year's Eve a few years ago and everyone loved it.

Well constructed Kit!
I have brewed this kit for two weddings and one 40th Birthday party. Each time it goes faster than whatever other beer is being served including some good microbrews! A very balanced beer that is a crowd pleaser

Came out so good I immediately made another batch
Used the WL Irish ale yeast. The beer had great flavor and body. It is one of the best beers I have made.

One of More Beers Favorites...I can see why!
I have brewed several "Irish Ales" and all I can say is this one tops them all......by far! True Irish flavor, eye pleasing color, good mouth feel and a great balance. This one will remain a staple for my offerings... And that?s no blarney!
