Red Ale is technically not a beer style category. Oh, well. It was created (and is continually evolving) in microbreweries throughout the US. Usually very similar to Amber Ale but with additional, darker crystal malts. MoreBeer! takes a different approach. We make it red with 2oz of Roasted Barley. The result is a red-colored beer but without the deeper, caramalized flavors. We add a combination of Cascade and Northern Brewer hops that combine with the malt flavors to make this a unique beer you won't find anywhere else.

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.
