Brewing an IRISH RED ALE With MORE FLAVOR | Grain to Glass in SEVEN DAYS



Strapped for time before St Patrick’s Day? In this video I show you how to make an Irish Red Ale, which is very easy to take from grain to glass in a week. By pitching a very healthy yeast starter and by oxygenating with pure O2, I was able to get fermentation to complete in just 5 days! This version of an Irish Red has more interesting and complex flavor than the more common recipes give, being more akin to a red colored ordinary bitter. Its full of bready, toasty, biscuit flavors with some nuttiness and just the right amount of earthy hop character to keep it in balance. There’s a little bit of toffee flavor in there, but less caramel flavor than in normal Irish Reds. This beer ended up being SUPER drinkable and goes down very easily.
