Default Red ale

Thinking about doing a red ale for my next brew. Will be extract and I like to use steeping grains. Anyone know of a good recipe?

I used a Brewers Best kit and I did not like it. It only uses 1 oz of chocolate malt but is leaves an unpleasant taste and comes out much too dark, however I did do a full boil and the kit is designed for partial.

Are you looking for an American style hoppy red like Green Flash Hop Head Red, or a malty Irish like Smithwick's? It makes a big difference!

Good question .... I suppose I should investigate further. I initially was thinking more like an Irish red but the American red sounds intriguing as well.

Just brewed the AG recipe for the 2nd time this morning. I think it is an excellent example of an Irish Red, and it pleases almost everyone.
