Help! Cardinal Red Ale
 
I've been playing around on Promash and trying to find the right grains to add to an extract brew to make it as RED as possible. I am trying for an easy drinking ale for this Cardinal Baseball Season. If you all have any suggestions that would be great.:mug: :rockin:

Melanoidin Malt.

Get a new baseball team

EDIT: sorry, there was no need for that...86 years of bitterness is hard to let go of........

Make it taste like a Poo-hole.

Any team that owns the Cubs is okay in my book!:D

For a coppery red, you can use 1-2 oz. of chocolate malt. I used it in this and it turned out a very nice color. Maybe a little 120-L crystal?

If you're looking for a bright Cardinal red, that's gonna be tough!

Rhoobarb has it right. I'd go with a half pound or so of Crystal 120 and a little chocolate malt or roasted barley, just an ounce or two.
