A solid basic kit
This is a solid beer that everyone can drink. Not too hoppy, or bitter, or malty, or funky tasting, its right in the middle. Its a safe choice for most drinkers. Its a smooth drinkable beer, and even women will drink it.

Easy drinking Red Ale
A good smooth easy drinking beer that many will enjoy. I made both an extract version and the all grain version and prefer the all grain. It has a better and cleaner taste. I used the White labs yeast and it took 5 days to finish and I racked it after 9 days, then let it clear for 4 weeks before bottling._x000D_

Proud of myself...
First attempt at brewing my own beer. The DVD made the process easy enough to understand and the recipe was easy to follow. It has been two weeks since I bottled it so it was time to check out the results. I Just finished enjoying the first bottle that I chilled to sample. Turned out great. I'll be sharing it with neighbors and friends as soon as I get the rest chilled down.

Second Time Around
I brewed this a second time and it is again a great tasting beer. As others have commented it is a little dark but still a hit.

Great beer, a must brew
I brewed this beer with St. Paddy's day in mind. Honestly, I don't know if the beer will make it until then, it is that good. This beer tastes better than any that you could buy in the store. It was a huge hit at an after work gathering._x000D__x000D_I did deviate from the instructions some, I boiled for 90 minutes instead of 60. I also added two pounds of honey to the secondary._x000D__x000D_I would definitely recommend this beer to anyone thinking about it. You won't be disappointed. I have already re-ordered but upgraded to the Wyeast instead of the stock yeast. Looking forward to the next batch.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling!
Easy to brew, and drink. I love the special B malt aroma and flavor. I used 4 oz of roasted Barley @ 300 Lovibond. Thus a nice copper red almost orange color, Nice job Midwest!

Great, Simple, Straight forward....
I brewed this Irish Red Ale as my 5th all grain batch. I've finally got it all down now and this was my first all grain batch where everything went as planned. Mashed in at 152, used Irish moss in the boil as well as yeast nutrient. This beer is fantastic. It's a great malty red ale. Mine is on the darker spectrum of red. Can't wait to serve it on St. Paddy's Day to my family along with some Guinness braised corned beef and cabbage mash potatoes. This is a very session-able beer. I'm not sure what makes it Irish, since I used Cali yeast, but, hey, it tastes great, the yeast is in the background and it lets the malt shine through!

Great Beer
I have brewered around 10 batches and this is by far the best beer I have made! Great malty flavor. I was a little short after my boil (about 4.5 gallons). It was a little on the dark side for an irish red but made a fabulous beer.

What is the alcohol content?
A shopper on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Midwest Supplies. I understand you would like to know the alcohol content of the Irish Red Ale. That is really dependent on the type of yeast you used and the efficiency of which you brew this kit, but roughly 4-4.5%. Cheers!
I've brewed this one (all-grain) twice and wound up with an OG of 1.036 both times. What could I be doing wrong? I've brewed 4 or 5 other beers and this process has worked alright for them but this one it fell shot on Gravity both times. Help??
A shopper on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Without knowing your process or set up I'll go with the usual suspects.
Disclaimer: I'm at work and I don't have my notes so please forgive if I don't get a temperature exactly right.
First, mash temp should be around 152 degrees. Sometimes it takes a little longer to convert starches to sugar so an extra 15 minutes mash time may help.
Second, rate of sparge. it should be a trickle, evenly distributed over the mash and take about an hour. I recirculate the wort through the mash several times...about 1.5-2 gallons before letting it flow into the brew kettle (called Vorlauf).
Additionally, try to get 7 gallons of wort into your boil pot as the boil helps to concentrate the sugars, increase final gravity.
Finally, a personal preference, and what I did with this product, is I used a step mash. Started with a lower temp (122) and went up in stages from there. The end result is your mash has more water and doesn't require sparging or as much...its more like a batch sparge. I think the flavor and body of the beer is improved as you release different starches throughout the process. The vorlauf stage is very important when doing this.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck!
