Marble Red Ale from "For the Love of Hops"
I've been reading this book since Friday. Cram packed full of info. Some really useful, some will just help you win Beer Jeopardy. I was pleased to find the Marble Red Ale recipe in the back. I went through the trouble of calculating it down to a 6gal batch, so I figured I'd share so you don't have to. I left the numbers for the grains in decimals. You can adjust them up or down to adjust for your scale batch. The hops have all been rounded to make for easy measuring except for the bittering addition. It just happened to be right at 40 IBUs for me at 1oz. That is the most important addition to keep the same! The IBUs work at the measurements I have here even though they look too rounded. Here ya go!

Interesting. I would have guessed they used an English ale yeast. It's so malty it would seem to me that an American ale yeast would not give it the maltyness.
Thanks for posting! I will be brewing this one for sure. They make fantastic beers, especially their IPA. Any chance they had that one in the book? I can't find a clone anywhere.
Negative. This was the only recipe from marble in the book. Lots of good ones in there though. Worth picking it up!
Nice! I'm so glad you posted this recipe. This is my favorite american red ale but can only find it when I go to NM!
I'll be making this one tomorrow. I brewed a preliminary version before the Hops book came out. I gave the brewer (Ted) a couple bottles and he said it needed more crystal and more hops. The recipe from the book has more in both departments so it should be pretty close. When I get mine kegged, I'll do a side-by-side comparison with the real thing.
As an aside, Marble Red is my favorite New Mexico beer, and easily in my top ten favorite beers from anywhere. It is hop and malt heaven in a glass.
I have added Crystal hops to my modified recipe. After noticing that this recipe did not include them. They are an absolute necessity! Going a little heavier on the late hops will help get you closer as well. Still not as good as the real thing though!
My first attempt had 1/2 oz Crystal at 0 and another 1/2 oz for dry hop. When did you add Crystal in your modified recipe?
Half oz at 10. Half oz at 0 and replaced a half ounce of Cascade in the dryhop. Next time I think I'm going to try a half oz of Citra and a half oz of Crystal at 5 as well. And maybe do a second dry hop with the same for another 3 days. Total of 6 days dryhop.
What is implied by the multiple cold crashes? Do you just pitch more hops in the fridge or take it back out to warm up?
I plan to master this beer, but will need to convert for BIAB...
