Product details

This strong-ish American amber ale is built for the cold: a substantial gravity for snowy weather, but a fast turnaround so you can get some holiday cheer from fermentor to pint ASAP. Malty but not too sweet, just enough bitterness to balance, a definite but not overstated citrus hop profile (bolstered by real citrus!), this is a far cry from most traditional, predictable holiday ales.

Loaded with premium ingredients, this recipe kit yields a saturated copper-red ale with a mind-bendingly complex flavor profile, thanks to a blend of malts. The pale chocolate adds a warm, toasty dimension and suggestions of black tea, while fig-and-toffee elements come from two authentic English caramel malts. The earthy and dark dried-fruit character of the malt segues into bright floral citrus, coming from the resinous lime-and-flowers punch of Styrian Celeia and a charge of sweet orange peel at the end of the boil!

This was a huge hit on New Year’s Day! Malty, not overly hoppy and a great red color. I will make this one often. As I give my beers names, this one is Rudolph the Red-nosed Reinbeer. It is a keeper in my rotation.

I ordered 2 of these all grain kits as I just wanted top throw something together and not have to think about it. Something for the cooler months. I brew mostly pale beers, but like all styles. The Brickwarmer surprised me. It offers a good amount of body without being heavy. The sweetness is likened to an Octoberfest but works well with the orange peel. Dont expect the orange peel to pucker the lips, it hangs in the balance, lightening the overall flavor of the beer a bit. The bitterness is a good balance to the sweetness as well. I have not used the special grains in my past recipes, that came in this kit. I will have to consider these grains when I make one of my recipes as they are interesting. Until then, I am working on the first Brickwarmer keg, with the second lagering on co2. This one will only get better with time, but its a great fresh one too. Dont delay drinking it!
