Where's The Yeast?

Ya'll market beer kits without yeast packets? Send me some glass laboratory flasks. I'll breed my own yeast.

This is my second brew. This brew kit instructions were similar to the first. I've found that if you follow the brewing instructions included with the kit, and follow scrupulous sanitation practices you can't go wrong. The Irish red ale was flavorful and easy to drink. I'll gladly brew this one again

Irish Red is a nice middle of the road brew that even most people who shy away from home brew because of the particular strength or flavor, can enjoy. Irish Red is one of my annual brews.

Brewed it before and I’ll brew it again. This is a good recipe requested by many friends.

I have brewed this kit on 3-4 different occasions. Typically this is a wonderful brew, I love it. Only reason I don't give this a 5 rating this time was the lack of carbonation. All was done correctly and on time. Opened three different bottles and had flat beer. Never had that happen before. I did however rescue the batch by readding the sugar and was able to carbonate the beer. Waited two weeks and it's been restored to it's wonderful taste. I had two different brewers recommend using carbonation tablets. That solution was not how I wanted to go due to cost and convienece. So, adding the sugar to recarbonate was the best option. And it worked !
