The problem with many commercial red beers is that they are too bland, maybe with a nice caramelized malt flavor and reddish amber color, but lacking much in the way of hop character. Our Red Ale features a deep amber-red color balanced with selected flavoring and aromatic hops. This kit represents the emerging West Coast style of red ales, which are typically more hoppy and malty than many mass-market commercial red beers. Alcohol: 4.0%, IBU's 36.
Includes 7 lbs. of our blended malt extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.044. Ease of Brewing: Beginner
