Anyone know if anyone makes one of these?
It's for a friend who loves Big Hoppy Monster. I assume this beer uses an american ale yeast as opposed to an irish ale yeast?
I really have no idea, and could possibly cobble together a recipe, but if I can direct them to a kit it would be a lot easier.
Thanks!

Well, they do have all the grains on the website:

You could plug those into Beersmith/Brewtarget and probably come up with something close. It doesn't look like a simple beer, that's for sure.

Also here on Austin Homebrew:

This Imperial version of our Irish Red Ale is a smooth flavorful red ale, and then some. Sure and Begorrah! It features Caramunich® and Crystal 120L grains. O.G. = 1.074. Approximately 7.3% ABV.

I noticed that kit on their site. Is it an imperial red?

My LHBS has an Imperial Red extract kit that I've made before. It got rave reviews, especially from yours truly.

Here's a link to the PDF: http://www.keystonehomebrew.com/beer...al_Red_Ale.pdf


And here's the gist, for those of use who dislike PDFs:

8 lb. Alexander’s Pale Malt Extract Original Gravity 1.075
1 lb. Muntons Light Dried Malt Extract Final Gravity 1.019
½ lb. Briess Crystal Malt 40° L Alcohol Content 7.0%
¼ lb. Briess Crystal Malt 80° L
¼ lb. Briess Crystal Malt 120° L
½ lb. Briess Toasted Malt 25° L
2 oz. Muntons Chocolate Malt 338° L
1½ oz. Amarillo Premium Hop Plugs (Bittering)
1 oz. Centennial Premium Hop Plugs (Flavoring 1)
½ oz. Amarillo Premium Hop Plugs (Flavoring 2)
1 oz. Cascade Premium Hop Plugs (Finishing 1)
1 oz. Centennial Premium Hop Plugs (Finishing 2)
Wyeast 1272 American Ale II

Man, I'm getting thirsty just thinking about it!
