Default Building The SamuraIPA

I had the idea to make a red IPA using mostly Sorachi Ace hops but I don't have any experience getting an obviously red color out of grain. I am aware of the CaraRed product but since I haven't used it I don't know what level of red color to expect from different amounts of the grain. An Example of what I'm shooting for pictured below.



The SamuraIPA

Batch Size: 5.5 Gallon
Est. Efficiency: 75%
Est. ABV: 6%
IBU: 63.6
Mash temp: 152

Grain
5 lbs US 2-row
5 lbs Maris Otter
(insert grain to make beer red)
6 oz Crystal 40
6 oz Crystal 120
6 oz Roasted Barley
or
12 oz C75
4 oz Victory
4 oz Chocolate

Hops
.75 oz Warrior 60 Min
.5 oz Sorachi Ace 15 Min
1 oz Sorachi Ace 0.0 Min
1 oz Sorachi Ace Dry Hop 7 days

I've done the Irish red Ale from Jamil Zainesheff's "Brewing Classic Styles" which came out quite red. You could try modeling it after that

The grain bill for this:
11.25# English Pale Ale Malt (I think we used standard 2 row)
6 oz Crystal 40
6 oz Crystal 120
6 oz Roasted Barley

SRM = 17

Founders also makes a Red Rye Pale Ale that has that same color. You could search the forums for that grain bill as well.

Edit: Link to Founders Rye Clone Attempt. The color is a little off from your picture, but it's fairly close.

Thanks, I think I'll be using the Jamil recipe for this beer. I don't like the color in the Founder Rye Clone.

I have been doing so research and found this combination looks like a yeilds a nice red color

1lb C40
4 oz Victory
4 oz Chocolate

I already have a bunch of C75 so im gonna sub the 1 lb C40 for .75 lbs C75. This should yield an SRM of 16.

What do you think?

I'm using Beer Calculus . homebrew recipe calculator and when I plug in your numbers in I get an SRM of 19. When I knock the Crystal 75 down to 8 oz I get an SRM of 16. Of course, the SRM's in this may be off. Otherwise your color looks good.

With your grain bill of:

5# 2 Row
5# Maris Otter
4 oz Chocolate
4 oz Victory
8 oz Crystal 75

I get an OG of 1.060.
SRM = 16

BJCP guidelines put an American IPA between 1.056 and 1.075 so you're good there.

I calculated your hop additions, assuming 15% AA for your Warrior and 13.7% AA for your Sorachi hops, at 45.5 IBU's. This is also within range of the BJCP guidelines of an American IPA (40-70) and looks like it provides plenty of bittering given your malt profile.

Sounds interesting. I've never worked with Warrior or Sorachi. If you end up brewing it let me know how it turns out.

Cheers

I am not worried about brewing to bjcp guidelines, my SRM calc comes from beersmith2 which I have found to be quite accurate. Thanks for the help though.

The Combo of Victory and Chocolate malt did not give me the color or flavor I was looking for. Too much roasted Chocolate flavor. I will be adjusting for the next batch

Melanoiden malt adds a nice deep red to beers, for future reference.

Awesome, in what percentage would you typically use it to achieve a ruby red color? Should it be used in conjunction with other malts or just base malt and Melanoiden
