2nd time for brewing, same positive result. Easy drinking with a good flavor.
Our beer is bottled and still carbonating, but we've tasted has been good. All of the tools and supplies we ordered were in the kit. The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is that some of the directions could have been clearer. We ended up doing some of our own research to clarify things, like whether we just dump the yeast in the bucket (like the instructions say) or we proof the yeast in some warm water first (like the yeast packet said).
I make this for a friend of mine. He said I have spoiled him for any commercial red ale.
This was my first time using liquid yeast. I set it out and the package swelled so I thought the inner pouch had broken. Much to my surprise when I opened the yeast, the inner pouch was still intact. I went ahead broke the pouch, putting the contents of both pouches in the beer. I let it sit for several weeks before bottling. Unfortunately the batch was so bitter that I tossed the whole thing. It was my mistake so I cannot give a fair rating on this beer.
This Irish Red ale is one great beer with a beautiful amber to red color, smooth taste that is full and not overly hoppy! It is easy to make and easier to drink! Please don’t stop offending this one! John
