Red ales are one of the most popular styles of beer among homebrewers, and our Irish Red Ale sings their praises. Customers love its rich, deep amber-red color (thanks to a little roasted barley) and balanced smooth taste. Originating in Ireland as the name says, this brew is malty and medium-bodied with a caramel-malty sweetness that has little to no hop aroma or flavor. This creates an Irish ale that is a smooth, easily enjoyed crowd-pleaser. You'll want to bust it out for parties and brew it over and over again!

1st homebrew kit. 1 word---delicious
Brewed this kit. 1 week in primary, 2 weeks in secondary, 4 weeks in bottles. Opened my first one and it tastes great. Looks good, very full flavor. Would definitely make again. Also Midwest's customer service is second to none. Helped to walk me through the process on my first homebrew.

Cant belive I can makes something that good
I was a bit leery about brewing at home. How can something that simple turn out so much better thent what the big boys bottle up._x000D_ So many beers tell you how they "taste great'... but this one...well speaks for itself. . _x000D_1 week in the primary ..3 weeks in secondary, 3 weeks in bottle and it just keeps getting better.

Turned out excellent. I would recommend leaving in bottle for 5-6 weeks for best results!

First beer...
Easy recipe- follow the directions and you can't go wrong..._x000D_I have tried it with 2 and 3 weeks in the bottle and the longer in the bottle does not make it dramatically better. _x000D__x000D_Enjoy.

You can't mess this up
Like the previous entry, this was my first batch. I used the muslin bag and just poured the hops into the kettle for the boil. I never strained out the hops when I put it in the first primary, when I was transferring it to the secondary, I was thinking, this is not right. Put it in the bottles after 2 weeks of fermenting and tried the first bottle after an additional two weeks. It wasn't a great beer, but it wasn't bad. As it aged, it got clearer and had a much better taste._x000D__x000D_This beer will be on my normal rotation after I try every recipe.. which may take a while.

We brewed this kit, it tasted like butter and caramel. It tasted a bit metallic too, is that normal?
L G on Dec 10, 2015
how big is this kit? There aren't any size details in the details.
E L on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit makes 5 gallons of finished beer.
Did anybody NOT secondary ferment? I just wonder if letting age in bottles longer would achieve the same result
Mark G on Jun 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is totally acceptable to not transfer your beer to a secondary fermentor. Just be sure to be sure your beer has completed fermentation before bottling.
What is the alcohol content?
Bernard K on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine came out at 4.2%. It was my first. It is very smooth and delicious with a malty flavor. I bought it again and I will make it soon.
