Yeah dump the chocolate, you don't want your red to taste like a Porter.

Maybe try 1-2 oz of Roasted Barley.

Do you have access to Caramunich? Maybe try 4oz of that. It will lend a nice amber/red color.

I recently used amber malt for the first time in an ipa and it was delicious. Very toasty.

How about 4 oz melanoiden?

Edit: Would have to turn it into a partial mash then.

I'd go for 2 oz. max. You don't want the flavor, just the color.

Yeah, I was reading up on the roasted barley and was just going to edit my previous post. Probably thinking 2 oz roasted barley, which I seem to recall is the same as the Surly Furious clone, which has a nice red hue to it.

Thanks for all the assistance! Can't wait to brew this up on Saturday after I bottle Zombie Dust take 2.

a little chocolate can do great things in a red but 4oz on top of that much caramel might be a bit muddling

i'd also run this through brewtarget or beersmith to get a good SRM idea if the red aspect is important to you

I plugged it in and I think I'll do the roasted barley, leaving out the chocolate. Color is great at 14.

I've also heard about people throwing in their darker roasted malts towards the end of the mash. This way you only get the color, not the flavor. Have fun brewing.

+ 1 on dropping the chocolate. Maybe bump the caramel 40 to 60 to compensate for SRM loss, but adds more red...
