- 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.

1 year agoI would recommend this brew to new brewers. It's simple and very good.February 20, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoTurned out great, and all my friends enjoyed it!I would definitely recommend this kit (any of the BIAB kits to be honest). This recipe makes a nice well balanced IPA. It's not very extreme in flavor so it will appeal to many beer drinkers.January 21, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoNot my styleBrewed 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.May 22, 2016May 19, 2016Fermenting 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...May 3, 2016Beware of the initial volumeThis 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 moodMarch 26, 2016Irish GoldNice color and great taste, a little hot of chocolate the made my wife enjoy it.March 20, 2016
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 8 answersCan I have this ready in 4 weeks. I'd like to just bottle it after two weeks and prime it with sugar and let sit until St. Patty's Day?BEST ANSWER: Technically I would think so, but at a sacrifice of some quality. Primary fermentation and secondary fermentation have two different tasks in the beer, and when you are bottling you are essentially going through another primary and secondary inside the bottle. It might taste a little unfinished, with the heavier alcohol flavors. But every batch is different! Best of luck.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, SteveBEST 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.
