Irish Red Ale

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 !

2nd time for brewing, same positive result. Easy drinking with a good flavor.

Good Beer, Instructions Could be Better

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).
