Brickwarmer Holiday Red Extract Beer Recipe Kit
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!

Brick warmer is one of my favorites. I don't care for really strong flavors like IPAs and a lot of the ales have a thin, watery flavor. Brick warmer is a good full flavored ale.
Looks and smells great in secondary fermenter. About 4.7% ABV. I hope that’s right. Looking forward to tasting in about a month
Sorry, fellas, my Hny Porter is still in the secondary, so I won't get to this one, which is highly anticipated, until next week. Thanks for asking, though!
This was my second brew and it came out great. The only hard part is being patient while it ferments and bottle conditions.
Good stuff, fun recipe to brew...
