Brewmaster's warehouse has a grain called weyermann Cara Red. Suppose to add good malt and a "saturated red color"

I asked a similar question about a different style of beer, but the point was the same - I wanted a red color. Fair warning, I haven't had a chance to brew the beer yet, so I don't have any results, but here were the top suggestions:

1) Add beet juice

2) Add some roasted barley

3) Add some dark crystal malt - 120L

4) Add some Special B

I personally settled on a combo of 3 & 4 - 1/2lb of each

hibiscus tea is very good. I think the bright, almost berry like flavor would be interesting in a saison. You could always make a concentrated tea and added it to taste or to the right color.

Hmm I might have to try this.

Planning:Choke cherry wine, brown ale.
Bulk Aging: Oud bruin with elderberries, Brett Saison, ordinary bitter.
Bottled: Oud Bruin, cider, black raspberry mead, Elderberry wine.
