Default What in the grain bill gives beers that orange color

I love that "orange-ish" color that certain beers have. So far all the apa's and ipa's iv'e made have that light brownish color. I'd like to make an ipa with that "orange" color to it so what grain or grains is it that will give me this.

Munich II grain will impart an orangey-amber hue to your beer in sufficient quantities.

I like to use about 15% Munich and some c40. That gives it a nice color

There are a number of grains that would do that. Special roast is one.

Use two row pale and boil for 75 minutes instead of 60.

When you enter your recipe into a calculator, you are looking for a SRM between 10L and 17L. Darker than 17L is going to be moving into browns and blacks. Lighter than 10L is going to be moving into golds and straws.

I made a simple beer 7 pounds 2-row and 1 pound of carared. It calculates to 4 SRM. It's orange.

Munich II, Munich + C40, special roast, or long boils. Aiming for 4 or between 10 and 17 SRM... I think we can consider this one solved!
