Default Looking for an Irish Red

Yep, like the subject says. The problem is I haven't found that many out there. I'd like a really good one for the first that I can maybe play with in the future. Something similar to Killian's is the goal. Thank you for any help.

Here is a Killian's Irish Red kit from AHS. You can get it in extract, mini-mash, or all-grain.

I brewed a Killians clone from AHS and it smells very very sour, not quite eggs, more just sour. Sounds like user error to me. I dont believe it is suppose to smell like that. It is bubbling more than any of the other beers I have made so far. Weird situation. Im going to let it get through fermenting and see how it goes from there. I do have to say that I was very impressed with the AHS kit. Very well built and packaged. That sounds

Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are in anguish;Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more. -- The Bible, Proverbs, Chapter 31 verse 6 and 7

Primary #1: I'll be Bock

Primary #2: Ash Red Lager

Secondary: Empty

Bottled: Rengaw Leaf Stout

Up Next: Unsure...

Thinking About: Banana Spice(?), Scottish Ale
