Hoppy Red Ale Critique
This is my first attempt at making a red ale, and I was hoping for some feedback from you fine folks.
Vol: 2.75 gallons
Estimated OG: 1.059
Estimated IBU: 50
Estimated Color: 14.5 SRM
1lbs Munich 10L
1oz Roasted Barley
Mash-in at 152F, BIAB single infusion
Hops (60 min boil):
FWH - 0.38oz Simcoe (35 IBU)
15min - 0.5oz Simcoe (15 IBU)
Whirlpool - 0.5oz each of amarillo, centennial, and simcoe
Dry hop - 0.5oz each of amarillo, centennial, and simcoe
Good call on only using 1oz of Roasted Barley, it can easily over power a beer when not used in moderation.
I really like cara-munich, it's sort of a cross between C40 and C120 and lends a really nice red color. I brewed a fresh hop red with C40 and Cara-munich and it turned out really nice -- best beer to date.
I don't see a 60 minute addition on your hop bill. I'd throw in an ounce of magnum for a smooth, subtle bitterness.
What about the FWH simcoe addition?
