First All Grain....FANTASTIC!
Not a big Red Ale fan but I have to say this recipe and brew turned out awesome. This was my 3rd brew and my first all grain. The chocolate/caramel flavors followed by malty aftertaste are perfectly balanced and the color is great. I fermented this in primary for 16 days included in that was 3 days of cold crash/gelatin finings in the primary fermenter. OG was 1.051 FG was 1.014 . The only change I made was using Wyeast 1056 and I am very happy with that decision. This beer finished with a very clean and dry flavor and I was able to harvest the yeast to use with my next Pale Ale brew.Even if you are not into Red Ale's this is a brew you still should put on your list, you will like it.

Fermenting nicely...
Haven't made it to the tasting yet...but everything up to now has gone as expected and looks good. Hope to move to 2ndary in a couple days, where I plan to split it and add a little coffee to about a gal. of it. I like my beer, and I like my coffee...trying another combo of the two...

Beware of the initial volume
This was my first BIAB and this kit makes a great smooth, malty red, but the initial volume is way too high. If you start with 5.5 gallons you will be trying to boil down over 5 gallons after removing the grains!! Better to start with about 4 1/4 gallons. I thought of knocking it down a star for that, but the beer turned out really nice and I just finished two pints of it...so I'm in a good mood

My Favorite Brew From Northern Brewer
This is my personal favorite from northern brewer. It's smooth, just the right amount of hops but still malty, and a little sweet on the back end. I usually end up around 4.5-4.9% alcohol so it's a nice session beer. The first thing that hits is the caramel/chocolate flavors with toasty biscuit flavors to follow. I think it's definitely better than Killian's. The only trouble I have with this kit or the all grain/extract is the color. It always comes out more brown than red.

I don't like Irish reds, but I like this one!
The kit made a malty, smooth, beautiful Irish red. I suspect it will taste even better in six weeks, so I am putting it aside.

I love this style and this Irish Red is at the top of the list.
I used a different yeast to save a dime but even so, the flavor, slight nutty buttery with a aromatic bite to the tast was very pleasing. I used cascade hops again to save a dime. Head retention and 5.3%ALV was reasonable.The aroma was nutty malty mix with a hint of the hops and slight indication of the Alcohol lingers in the nose. I would recommend this kit to those who prefer malty over hoppy beer style.

Not my style
Brewed this one a while ago, not my style. Was too malty for me, not enough hops. Not on my brew again list, but not terrible.

I t may be a few weeks before I can brew due to work. Will the crush grains stay fresh or do you recommend refrigeration or freezing if there is a further delay in brewing?

BEST ANSWER: I always store my grains in an airtight container in the fridge if its going to be more than a week. Funny enough, I let this exact kit sit for almost a month, outside the fridge, and it turned out just fine. For the record, it was in a stable 70 degree closet due to a move. Either way, turned out great!
Since the final volume of wort will be around 3-4 gallons, do you pitch in the full pack of yeast (11 grams )? Thanks, Steve
D S on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have not brewed this particular recipe yet but I do a lot of 3 gallon batches and always use the entire packet of yeast. I don't know that "too much" yeast will cause any issues but I have never had a problem.
