I tried the non-grain version of this. It's in my garage now carbonating in the bottles. It tasted great early, but now is a bit yeasty. I'm hoping that over the next few weeks, it will settle down. I saw monster brew just made a new double IPA kit. If this red ale turns out ok, I may try the double IPA.

Well, I haven't tried this kit yet (...actually I haven't done any kits yet....bummer) but I did brew up a red ale yesterday.

the recipe I went with had 3.3 lbs unhopped muntons amber liquid extract, 1.5 lbs amber DME, 1 lb crystal malt, 1/2 lb roasted malted barley, 1 oz cascade hops (boiling) and one ounce willamette hops (flavoring). Oh yeah... I used SafeAle 05 yeast.

I'm hoping this one comes out great...

My first batch is/was a TB Red Ale with US-05 yeast. It is in its third week of primary. It will stay for one more, then a week in secondary, then 3 weeks in the bottle.

...is it done yet?

Post agian when you start drinking! I brewed almost the exact recipe but I used all liquid extract and Wyeast Amercian Ale 2 and a few other speciality grains in my steep. I just racked it the secondary last weekend, its looking real good. This was my first brew in a pot large enough for a complete boil so Im looking forward to see how it turns out.

nvr2low, have you tasted any of yours yet? I'm interested to know if you get the same yeast flavor I'm getting. At first, this tasted really good, but now there's too much yeast flavor. I'm going to give it a few more weeks and see what's up.

How are you pouring the beer? Are you leaving about half-inch behind and not pouring too quickly?

This is also my first brew. It has been in the primary 3 weeks now and I'll bottle it in the next few days. I'm gonna let it sit 3 weeks before I try it. I'm hoping it comes out as good as a few of you say.
