It looks good, but with .5 Melanoidin & .5 cara-pils I would lower the mash to 152-3. It should be good either way.

Thanks Gentelemen.
The "SPG" name is an ode to the Young Ones (anyone remember that)?
One of the characters, Vivian, had a hamster by that name.

I will definitely take the advice and lower the mash temp.
I will let you all know how it comes out.

I remember it well. Thus, my comment.

And . . . it's Vyvyan.

Vyv! He was the punk rocker, right? I had forgotten all about that show. I love English humor.

Thanks for the correction there TL.
Yeah he was the punk rocker. I don't know which character I liked more, him or Rick.
Well at least I know what will be on my tap handle when this one is kegged....

I always expect some higher crystal in a red, like 120, maybe like 6oz? It definitely adds color but I think it adds a nice flavor that "tastes" red too.

That's what I was thinking; either some 90L or 120L. Not the end of the world if you don't add it, but pretty classic to the style. I was thinking half-pound-ish.

This is a good idea, but unfortunately
I already ordered the grains. Looks like it it's too late for this one. Ahh well.
