Megalodon Imperial Red Ale Recipe Extract Beer Recipe Kit
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.

Like other reviews here, I was not able to get this beer to carbonate. Used two packs of Safale Us-05 yeast, 2 weeks in primary, two weeks in secondary and it has been 4 weeks in the bottle and still completely flat.
For the last two weeks, I have increased the temperature and tried rousing the yeast but still no change. Flavor of the beer seems great but tough to like it when it is flat.
would absolutely recommend.
need to include a bigger bag for the grain
Best red ale I’ve ever made. Everybody just can’t get enough, that’s why I’m going to have to make some more.
We made this for a wedding shower where everyone had very different tastes in beer, but we only heard praise. Everyone said it was smooth but strong and some of the more lightweights felt it after the first cup which is fine with me.
