I just got 6#s of Carared malt for a Irish red. Anybody use this before? Its the first Ive ever heard of it. Tell me what you think of it.

CaraRed is a crystal malt usually ~20L...purported to give a nice red color and good malty flavor. I hope the 6# isn't for one batch.
great for altbier
I use it alot and I wouldnt use more than about 2 # per 12 gallon batch. It will make a beer nice and red and add a very nice malty taste
I've got a couple pounds of it, haven't used yet though. Was thinking an irish red would be a cool use as well.
