Default Imperial Red

Hows this look

6 Lbs Marris Otter
1 Lb Caravienne
1 Lb Melanoidin
single infusion mash @ 150

8 Lb Marris Otter LME
1 Lb Demarara brown sugar

.5 oz 10%aa target at 60 min
.5 oz 3.3%aa fuggles at 60 min
.25 oz 10%aa target at 30 min
.5 oz 6%aa EKG at 30min
.25 oz 3.3%aa Fuggles at 15 min
.25 oz 10%aa target Aroma
.5 oz 6%aa EKG aroma

I'll be doing the LME and sugar addition with 10 minutes left in the boil, so the bittering hops should get better utilization.

Pitching onto a big Pacman yeast cake from a mild.

any thoughts?

I like it. You should get a dark red color out of it. When I run it through ProMash, I get 36 IBUs out of it. If you're trying for a lot of hoppiness, I'd bump it up at least 0.25 oz for each hop addition.


There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Looks like a lot of melanoindin to me. My experience with this malt is that a little goes a long way.

I tried to put this in to beersmith but maris otter isn't in there. After a google search, I see that it ranges from 3.5 to 4.5 Lovibond. Anyone have the rest of the details so I can add it to beersmith? Thanks.


Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes -- but who really cares? Arr!
