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
Good recipe but lacks some flavor depth. Couple of weeks after bottling, it’s finally coming around.
I’ve purchased 10 or so different extract beer kits and the Red Ale is by far the most requested kit. It used to come with US-05, and even though it recommended Nottingham Ale yeast, I stuck with the 05. A little malty, a little sweet, low-ish alcohol, and an easy drinker. It gets better after 3 weeks in keg, that’s it’s prime time. Yum.
This is the fifth time we have brewed this kit. Always easy and always great.
