Default Nice, Hoppy Red Ale!

I just sampled this after two weeks in the bottle tonight and it turned out great! In fact, I can't wait to put the rest in the fridge! It is very nice and quite hoppy. This was my last extract brew.

Kilkenny Red is an Irish Red Ale not found in America, as far as I know. The name of this brew is a play on that ale’s name, with a tip 'o the cap to South Park.

I was aiming to replicate something similar to Goose Island Kilgubbin Red Ale, Murphy’s Irish Red or Boulevard Irish Red Ale from Kansas City‘s Boulevard Brewing, one of my all-time favorite American breweries. Boulevard‘s is a bit hoppier than the traditional Irish Red. I was aiming for their version. I think mine is even hoppier! But, damn, it's good!

I was tired of the low hop flavor and aroma of my extract brews. It seemed, no matter how much I tried, it was never enough. So, with this recipe, I doubled the hop amounts. You may want cut the hops in half, especially if you are doing AG.

Now, I just have to convert this recipe to an AG format!:

There is an extraordinary amount of hops going into this recipe. Presumably this is for a 10 gal batch? Im actually looking for a good red-ale recipe myself but I dont want to end up going overkill.

No, 5 gallons! Like I said, I was tired of the low hop flavor and aroma of my extract brews. YMMV!
