Killains Red

Source: Robert Grundler
Recipe added: 02/10/99

This recipe will only yeild about six gallons when placed into primary fermenter. I always use enough grain to make 7 gallons so i can conrol the original gravity. This is my own recipe for killians red. It is derived from about twenty different recipies and attempts to make it perfect and here i have it. you can substitute the white lab yeast with wyeast 1338 if you dont want as much alcohol but why would you do that? This beer is very red and very smooth. This beer smells, looks, and tastes like a real killians. If you keg this beer do it at 13.25psi for the right head.
