Default Falconer's Flight/Red Ale

Tomorrow will be a special day. I am brewing a recipe based on a beer that I did in a pub some years ago (it went through a few incarnations at the time), which in turn was based on Rogue Red Ale... I will be using exclusively Falconer's Flight. Glenn Falconer was there the first day I went to work at Rogue (late summer '95), he trained me that day ... we talked beer, Jethro Tull and all sorts of foolishness. We were friends from then on... visited each other's pubs, etc. This beer is a tribute to you Glenn, I miss you buddy...

4.5 # Pale Ale Malt
4.5# Munich 7
1# Cara Munich
1# C90
0.5# Honey Malt
0.5# Victory

(hop additions are 1 oz each Falconer's Flight)
60
10
Flameout
(aprox 49 IBU)

S-04

I usually mash hot, around 158... I think this grain bill may want a lower temp, 150ish, or it will be a little syrupy

Looks good. I've really wanted to do a Red lately. This one might just fit the bill. I want to use the new FF 7Cs I read about on my LHBS website today.

Cool, I hope you like it!

When I was making this in the pub, I started with essentially Rogue Red... altered ingredients according to what I had on hand... it went through several incarnations, bumping the maltiness/gravity up several times... eventually it was sort of a Rogue Red on steroids LOL The above is scaled down from my 10bbl recipe with a few more tweaks to the grain bill. I guess you could call it a "great grandchild" brew

I decided a month or two ago to do something with some Falconer's Flight, wasn't sure what at first. I went through some files and saw my old red recipe. Seemed a nice, full circle way to pay a little tribute to my friend.

No, the Brewer's Best is a Double IPA type beer, this one is a malty red ale... of course, both are tributes to Glenn, so there is that.

I'm drinking my all FF IPA, and I feel like the hops give it a slight candy like flavor
