Product details

Big, bold, and boozy; it dangerous and over the top, yet the head of this massively malty beast never looked so good. This malty, heavily hopped American-style Imperial Red Ale recipe is loaded with enough citrusy Northwest hops to keep any hop head happy while delivering boatloads of big chewy malt.

Megalodon! Like its namesake, Megalodon is massive. This malty, heavily hopped American-style Imperial Red Ale is loaded with enough citrusy Northwest hops to keep any hop head happy while delivering boatloads of big chewy malt. A signature blend of select crystal malts imparts delicious flavors of toffee and caramel with just a hint of raisin and toast in the finish. The citrusy hop flavor buoys the beer with a lively freshness, while the bitter bite cuts through the sweetness and creates a superb balance that goes down all too easy for an ale of this magnitude. It's totally Jawsome!

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

As advertised. It's Jawsome!

Finally got it bottled and left to carbonate. Opened the first one last night and it tastes amazing.

Decent flavor but lack of carbonation

I’ve been brewing for about 10 years, and was very excited about this recipe. Brewed on Memorial Day, 4 wks primary, 2 wks secondary, 2 wks conditioning. Tried first bottle yesterday. Really bold rich flavor, as advertised, but I must have not done something right in that the carbonation just was not there. Will give this another 2 wks to condition, hoping for this beer to pop to life. Fingers crossed!

Slow but Steady

I’ve brewed big beers before, but this one confused me at first. With a blowoff tube attached, my primary was ready for major activity. Anticlimax, I wasn’t sure fermentation was even happening. Did I kill my yeast? But at racking 3 weeks later the gravity was 1.018 (8.5%) and I has happy all over again. Fermentation appeared more evident during 4 weeks in secondary, but alas… FG was still 1.018. The recipe called for 1.5# of corn sugar, but there were 2# delivered. Wish I had added the extra 0.5# to boost the ABV! In bottling I used fizz drops to ensure uniform sugar throughout the batch and a packet of CBC-1 conditioning yeast. Uncarbonated taste was very good. Prepared to wait 4-6 weeks for carbonation, if I don’t drink it all by then.

Megalodon Imperial Red Ale, easy brew, but ended a little too sweet for my taste

This is a big brew with lots of malty flavor. For my personal taste, it came off as a little too sweet. That could be the result of my starter not being in full exponential growth phase before pitching. This would be an excellent candidate for scotch barreling (or using oak cubes soaked in scotch)
I'll likely brew again for next fall / winter drinking. at 9.5% its not a wise "pool beer"
