St Peters Ruby Red AleRed Ale’s are becoming increasingly popular within the craft beer industry and this certainly isn’t one to disappoint. This auburn red ale provides subtle malt undertones and a superb aroma of vine fruits. This ale has a distinctive spicy hop aroma from cascade hops. This sensational brew won a silver medal in the 2010 International Beer Challenge. This 3kg kit makes 40 pints of wonderful red ale brewing at approx 4.3% ABV.

There are five beer kits in the St Peters Brewery range, Ruby Red Ale compliments the Cream Stout, Honey Porter, India Pale Ale and Golden Ale. This kit has been approved by the head brewer at the Suffolk based brewery. St Peters Brewery is based in St Peter, South Elmham, near Bungay in Suffolk. The brewery was built in 1996 and is housed in an attractive range of agricultural buildings adjacent to St Peter’s Hall.

DO YOU NEED ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS?

This is an all malt beer kit, and you do not need any additional sugar or beer kit enhancer to make the kit. However, you will need some sugar or carbonation drops to prime the bottles or keg for a secondary fermentation.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED?

Basic beer making equipment (5g fermenter, airlock, syphon tube with sediment trap, hydrometer, Suresan sanitiser, bottles or barrel). These are available under the starter kit section on this website.

TIPS

Harris Pure Brew - 5 DoseWe strongly recommend using Pure Brew with this kit in order to achieve a commercial quality. Pure Brew is a professional beer enhancer. It feeds the yeast with essential nutrients, which supercharge the fermentation and support yeast development (even in limited oxygen conditions). Additionally, Pure Brew treats brewing water, eliminating problems caused by Chlorine and Chloramine, which can create a medicinal or, as it is sometimes referred to, a “homebrew” taste. Achieving optimum results in brewing critically depends on the condition of brewing water, but this important area is often overlooked. By using Pure Brew, you can effectively and easily condition brewing water, and maximise effective fermentation.

The addition of beer finings will improve the final quality of your beer. Finings such as Harris Beer Brite will help your beer to clear quickly and the sediment will be more likely to stay at the bottom of bottles or barrels. If you are using Corny Kegs then it is important to clear the beer as much as possible before kegging. Beer Finings will promote a faster and more efficient fall out of sediment and haze particles prior to kegging. Harris Starbrite is a highly effective vegan-friendly beer fining, which is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with home brewers.

This was my first home brewed beer and I have to be honest and say I wasn’t expecting much. I was very surprised by the end result and couldn’t believe that something so simple to brew could be so good. I’m on my second batch now and loving every bottle.
