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.

I have brewed this one several times with minor tweaks. It never fails to please. Oh, and the longer it sits in your keg, the better it gets.

Megalodon Imperial Red Ale Extract Beer Kit

First I was surprised when I received the kit that Northern Brewer had sent Liquid Malt Extract. I was expecting Dry Malt Extract. I received everything I needed to make 5 gallons of beer. Since I use a tear drop shaped Fast Fermenter I always make 6 gallons of beer so that I bottle at least 5 gallons. Therefore I did add 3lbs of Malt Extract that I had in the frig. I made a yeast starter using Northern Brewers Fast Pitch 2 days before brewing and it was the easiest starter I ever made. Used Safale 05 yeast, OG 1.090, FG 1.020, temp was 70-71 degrees F. In 4 days the gravity was 1.028 but it took another 2 weeks to reach 1.020. I bottled 5.5 gallons of beer a week ago so I have not tasted it yet. It has a beautiful redish brown color with a ABV of 9.2%. I am definitely going to buy more kits from Northern Brewers. I am already eye balling their Cascadian/Black IPA kit as Cascadian Ale is my favorite beer.

Still in the secondary, fermentation was crazy... Blew the air lock off the carboy. Use a blow off tube. I'm anticipating it to be amazing. Thanks Northern Brew Crew
