Fixed Gear is a big, bold American red ale. It pours a glaring crimson tone with a rocky white head and a brilliant floral-citrus aroma, thanks to an aggressive dry hopping. Its immodest, malty spine and intrepid caramel flavors blow in via gratuitous amounts of 2-row pale and dark caramel malts. A balanced citrus bite comes from Chinook and Cascade hops followed shortly by mild, fruity esters from the ale yeast. Since the opening of Northern Brewer Milwaukee in 2009, Lakefront Brewery has been a collaborator on a number of projects. This beer kit is the result of a close working relationship with Lakefront’s expert brewers.

5.0 / 5.04 ReviewsScary drinkabilityI brewed up this extract kit last year and honestly was a bit disappointed. More than likely my process wasn't perfect at the time. I converted to AG this spring so I decided to give the AG kit a go this year. Let me just say wow, this beer is ridiculously, bordering dangerously drinkable beer. A great summer beer, nice and light with a wonderful aroma. I would describe this is a perfect (non-IPA) summer beer. It makes a nice complement to the hop bombs I brew in the summer.December 1, 2015Great Big Red AleThis is my brewing partner's favorite red. He brewed it as an extract and a partial mash. Both were very good. We started doing all grain 10 gal batches together last fall and this was our first. It came out fantastic! Now that its been bottled for over 6 months it is without a doubt the best red I've ever had. Almost gone....we'll be brewing it again for sure!June 14, 2016Have ordered many times!! AlwaysHave ordered many times!! Always turns out great. Just like the original.December 13, 2015
Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 2 answersFor the dry hopping, it says 7 days for both hops. Is that dry hop 7 days after fermenting or 7 days before bottling?BEST ANSWER: It calls for 2-4 weeks secondary fermentation. I have always used three weeks. I drain the yeast and let it sit for 14 days then add both hops directly in and let it go another 7 days. Comes out consistently good every time!! Good Luck!
