Gorgeous Girls Series: Rita - Feisty Redhead (no-boil recipe)

This red ale has a complex but always interesting character. Its malty sweetness is complemented by fruity, flowery and spicy notes. A beer for all seasons that helps to keep you warm on a cold winter evening but is also perfect for long, lazy summer afternoons. Makes 20 litres.


Note: This recipe is also avalable as a ready-to-brew recipe pack.


Add about 3 liters of hot water to a cleaned and sterilized fermenter. Add the beer kit and malt extract and stir to dissolve. Top up with cold water to a total volume of 20 liters and pitch the Fermentis yeast. Discard the yeast supplied with the beer kit or put it aside for use with another brew.

Ferment as usual. After 3 days of fermentation, add the hops. Once fermentation is complete, bottle in clean, sterilized bottles, adding carbonation tablets or drops as usual. Let mature at room temperature for at least 4 weeks.

Approximate Original Gravity: 1.048. Estimated finishing gravity: 1.009. Estimated alcohol by volume: 5.1%.
