Description  more details

Roeselare Red is a refreshingly dry Belgian Red Ale, with a touch of earthy sourness in the finish. Great for summer drinking, although it does take at least 4 months for the sour flavor to develop. If you don't want to wait for the sourness to develop, this beer can be consumed young and be a refreshing dry ale. For a touch of delicate sourness in the finish, leave in a secondary fermenter for 4 - 12 months before bottling. Alcohol: 6%, IBU’s 26. Click on the More Info link above for an actual picture of this beer in the glass.

Includes 8 lbs. of blended Belgian extract and beet sugar, flavoring hops, liquid Roeselare yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.054. Ease of Brewing: Beginner

Great Beer!
I have purchased this kit 3 times. Each time I add 7 pounds of sour cherries into the secondary. After 2-3 weeks, I siphon into a third firmentor. I have let it sit for 6-18 months at 65 degrees before bottling. Rave reviews!

Must have on tap always
Belgians are my favorite style and this one MUST always be in the keezer and on tap.  The best recipe so far.  Age it 4-6 months.  Even people I know who do not appreciate most home brew styles love this.

Waited 11 months
Went abroad and left beer in a tank in the basement for almost a year. I was nervous, I'll admit. Upon return, added the yeast and sugars and bottled. Just had a taste after the first few weeks...it's excellent! Measures up to the stuff I had in Belgium a few months ago. I'll have some over the next few months, store the rest for way down the line. This should age very nicely. Thumbs up, truly.

Great sour red ale
Worth the wait if you have an extra secondary to spare for a few months. It's a long wait but turned out great! Be very careful to clean everything perfectly to avoid disappointment.

Third batch!
I've made this several times now, and it keeps getting better with age.  Opened a year old bottle about a month ago....and loved it.  Nice sour flavor, but not overpowering.  It is worth letting it sit in the secondary for the full 6 months.

I seem to have 2 bags of KCS in my kit plus a package of wine yeast... wondering WHY? joefromhell13@gmail.com
These are explained in the included instructions.  Add the brewing sugar (KCS) after stirring in the extract (step 2 on the instructions).  Add the wine yeast to help produce carbonation when you add the priming sugar IF you have let the beer sit for a long time in the secondary (step 10 of the instructions).  If you do not have the instruction sheet you can download or view it by going to the product page on our website.  Just type K44 in the search box to find the kit.
