Product Details
Irish ales are malty, smooth, medium-bodied, and most, like our kit, are a deep copper-red color that is created by a blend of specialty malts. Our malt blend also gives this recipe its signature toasty and sweet aroma and flavor. Another defining characteristic of Irish Red Ales are their immense drinkability - definitely a crowd-pleaser beer. Its great taste, drinkability, and low aging requirements make this our best-selling kit.

So easy an Irishman can do it
So far, so good. This was my first batch of beer in nearly 2 decades and my first truly (proper) all-grain attempt. The kit couldn't be easier. I can't wait to make this one again.

Hard to beat
I understand it's not a full review if you change the recipe. I've Brewed the original and loved it but in the summertime I used safale 05 and Maris otter as the base malt, specialty malts and hops the same. After more than 50 brews this one stands out. Great way to showcase malt and smoothness. 5 stars

Always on tap.
I try to always have the Irish Red on tap. It's flavorful enough for real beer drinkers to enjoy but the bud lite crowd can enjoy it as well. Have had several "you made this ? " comments.

Great Irish Red
This is my first beer from Nothern Brewer and my first beer using the Grainfather. Both worked great. The beer was just as I hoped for with an Irish Red., very drinkable, with a little bitter/hops in the finish. Will make this again.

Don't plan to have any of this left the day after St. Patrick's Day. I didn't! This is a VERY good recipe, earlier I commented that I wasn't sure the color was right....this stuff was beautifully red when it came out of secondary.This is one I will keep on tap!

Everyone likes it!
Was my first all grain beer. Came out really nice, and even people that don't normally like craft beer said "I like that" . Almost gone so time to brew another.

Is there a Final Gravity target? Mine stopped at 1.024. What did you finish at?
A shopper on May 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The FG varies though usually will be lower than that. That could occur if you are using a refractometer, since those are not accurate for FG readings. Otherwise, how does it taste? You could consider stirring/shaking and raising the temp to try and get it lower, but if it tastes good, it may be safer to drink as is. Anything we try to get that number lower, could make the beer not taste good.
Has anyone used this kit with the brew in a bag method?

Thank you for contacting us. Many brewer do use our all grain kits to make a BIAB batch. If doing this you will assume an expected efficiency of about 60% which usually yields about 4 gallons of finished beer rather than 5. We do also offer the Irish Read ale in a BIAB kit here: http://www.northernbrewer.com/irish-red-ale-biab-recipe-kit

Please let us know if we can help further.

What hops come with this kit?

I brewed this recipe and tried I e out of the keg the other day and color was bit lighter than I expected. Not sure why, any ideas?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have brewed this beer kit twice... and honestly, while tasty and very drinkable I have always found it to be quite light in color. If I were to brew with this grain bill again, am thinking I would boil it for extra 15 mins before hop additions (adjusting mash/sparge volumes), and have considered throwing in a couple ounces (2 max!!) of Roasted Barley to flesh it out a bit more.
