While Irish brewing is perhaps best known for its black stouts, some ales in Ireland have been red since before detailed brewing records were kept--the exact origin for the style is unknown. What is known--and is still true today--is that these beers are rich, and malty, mild in bitterness, and of a distinctly reddish hue. Our recipe includes the specialty malt, Melanoidin, for true red beer color and malt flavor. Also consider enrollment in one of our Upcoming Brewing Classes
where we'll help take those brewing skills to the next level.
This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.
Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.
