Irish Red Ale Extract Kit w/ Omega HotHead® Ale
Irish Red is an immensely drinkable rich copper ale that does not require a long aging process, making it a top-seller for many years. This malt forward classic Irish Red pairs well with the neutral, clean fermentation over an absurdly wide temperature range HotHead® provides.
The Beer Kit
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 is their immense drinkability, definitely a crowd-pleasing beer.
Its great taste, drinkability, and low aging requirements make this our best-selling kit.
The Yeast Pairing
Hothead® is an ale strain of Norwegian origin that has an astoundingly wide temperature range (62F-98F) with little difference in flavor profile across the whole range. Temperature control is unnecessary with this strain. It has a unique fruitiness that makes it complementary to modern hop varieties. This just may be the perfect yeast for warmer climates or those hot summer months. Hothead® is a proprietary strain that you will not find anywhere else.
