Or use amber grains/dme.

Then pour 4 pounds of blood in it. In the secondary. You want to dry-blood it.

Honey Malt helps impart some reddish color as well.

The American Red Ale Kit I got from AHS, was by far the best beer I have brewed so far. I 'm going to have a batch of that going conituously for a while.

I heard that if you add a very small amount of black patent (2 ounces) then it gives the batch a distinctive red hue. Ive not tried this myself yet but it might be something I that I will experiment with.
