This red ale is packed with flavor as big as the mighty Redwood trees of the Redwood National Forest in California. The Northwest Pale Ale is enhanced by a Robust LME which gives the beer subtle roasted notes and a ruby red color. The addition of Warrior hops adds a piney and earthy note that balances the aggressive malt backbone.

    Cleaning is one of the most important steps in brewing. It kills microscopic bacteria, wild yeast, and molds that may cause off-flavors in your beer. Make certain to clean all equipment that comes in contact with your beer by following the directions below:

    1. Fill clean keg with warm water to line mark 1 on the back, then add ½ pack (about 1 tablespoon) of No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, the solution is ready to use. Save the remaining ½ of No-Rinse Cleanser because you will need it for bottling.

    2. Screw on lid and swirl the keg so that the cleaning solution makes contact with the entire interior of the keg, including the underside of the lid. Note that the ventilation notches under the lid may leak solution. Allow to sit for at least 2 minutes and swirl again.

    3. To clean the spigot, open it fully and allow liquid to flow for 5 seconds and then close

    4. Pour the rest of the solution from the keg into a large bowl. Place your spoon/whisk, can opener and measuring cup into the bowl to keep them cleaned throughout the brewing process. Leave them immersed for at least 2 minutes in cleaning solution prior to using.

    5. After all surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned, do not rinse or dry the keg or utensils. Return lid to top of keg, proceed immediately to brewing.


    Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation.

    1. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract, then place the
    unopened can and BrewMax LME in hot tap water.

    2. Place the pellet hops into the hop sack tying it closed, then trim away excess material

    3. Using the measuring cup, pour 4 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot. Bring this
    to a boil, add in your hop sack, then remove from heat.

    4. Open the can of Brewing Extract and BrewMax LME and pour the contents into the hot hop
    water in your pot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called wort. 

    5. Fill your fermenter with cold tap water to the mark 1 on the back. If using any other fermenter
    this would be approximately 1 gallon of water.

    6. Pour the wort into your fermenter with the hops, and then bring the volume of the fermenter to
    mark 2 by adding more cold water. (If you have a different fermenter top it off with cold water to
    the 8.5-liter mark). 

    7. Stir your wort mixture vigorously with your sanitized spoon or whisk.

    8. Sprinkle the US-05 Yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir

    Put your fermenter in a location with a consistent temperature between 68° and 78° F (20°-25°
    C), and out of direct sunlight. Ferment for 21 days.


    After 21 days, taste a small sample to determine if the beer is fully fermented and ready to bottle. If it tastes like flat beer, it is ready. If it’s sweet, then it’s not ready. Let it ferment for 3 more days (24 total). At this point, it is time to bottle. Do not let it sit in the fermenter for longer than 24 days total.

    1. When your beer is ready to bottle, fill a 1-gallon container with warm water, then add the remaining ½ pack of the No-Rinse Cleanser and stir until dissolved. Once dissolved, it is ready to use

    2. Distribute the cleaning solution equally among the bottles. Screw-on caps (or cover with a metal cap if using glass bottles) and shake bottles vigorously. Allow to sit 10 minutes, then shake the bottles again. Remove caps and empty all cleaning solutions into a large bowl. Use this solution to clean any other equipment you may be using for bottling. Do not rinse.

    3. Add 2 Carbonation Drops to each 740-mL bottle. For 1-liter bottles, add 2 ½ drops; for ½-liter bottles add 1 drop. Alternatively, you can add table sugar using this table as a guide. 

    4. Holding the bottle at an angle, fill each bottle to about 2 inches from the bottle’s top.

    5. Place caps on bottles, hand tighten, and gently turn the bottle over to check the bottle’s seal. It is not necessary to shake them.

    6. Store the bottles upright and out of direct sunlight in a location with a consistent temperature between 70°-76°F or 21°-24°C. Allow sitting for a minimum of 14 days. If the temperature is cooler than suggested it may take an additional week to reach full carbonation. 


    After the primary carbonation has taken place your beer is ready to drink. We recommend putting 1 bottle in the refrigerator at first for 48 hrs. After 48hrs. give it a try and if it is up to your liking put the rest of your beer in the fridge. If it does not taste quite right, leave the bottles out at room temp for another week or so. Keep following this method until your brew tastes just how you like it. 

    This process is called conditioning and during this time the yeast left in your beer can help clean up any off-flavors. Almost everything gets a little better with time and so will your beer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Shrike from Smooth and Tasty I had my first of these right at minimum conditioning time and really enjoyed it. To me, it's more to the bitter side than malty, which is fine by me. It's malty at first, but then the hops hit you with a pleasant, lingering bitterness. As is usually the case, the color is more brown than red, but that doesn't bother me one bit. I'll brew this one again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Gator 82 from Redwood Ale tasted like a Porter The beer was delicious, however, it did not taste like a red ale, hence the 4 star rating. it really seemed more like a porter in color and taste. Is it possible that the ingredients that i received were sent in error?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaime Verde from Hale Hale the Redwood Ale! Dare I say "Best yet"..? OK, I do, and maybe that's partly luck, but this batch came out exceptional. Pours a frothy head, great hoppy nose, lovely amber color, and baby it goes down nice!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by JAWS from Darker than expected Very easy kit to use. Somewhat darker than I expected. More of a brown ale than the amber color shown. Still maturing in the bottles, so more when I get to open one.

    Why would this beer come out dark?

    Asked by: Nbob
    Malt extract beers, like Mr. Beer, go through a heating process to remove the water. This heating process can darken the malt, especially if that malt has hops in it. It's one of the few compromises of extract brewing but shouldn't affect the flavor.
