Brickwarmer Holiday Red Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains
Not Quite Time to Brew Yet.
There's a season for all things, including creating this brew. And this seasonal kit won’t be back in stock until July, which is the peak season to brew it. Until then, you’re welcome to read the tasting notes and review the recipe instructions. Or go brew another beer to tide you over!
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!
