All-Grain - India Red Ale

You may be a bit heavy handed on the crystal. Might want to add an ounce or two of dark malt. Otherwise looks solid. Here is one of my recipes that has been a hit for most who brew it

Drop the 120 entirely, if go with 60 instead of 80, and substitute carafa I or II, 8 oz at most, maybe 6, don't go over 5% with it, and the crystal keep below 10%. I'd like to see you use nugget or warrior to bitter as well, simcoe would be interesting there too, it would lend a bit of pine.

That's a nice recipe. If I did anything I'd take the crystal 120 down to 4 oz. It's got a very distinct burnt, raisiny flavor that could overwhelm.

Looks OK to me, although if I were making a Red IPA, I'd just take my favorite IPA recipe (currently Yooper's DFH 60 Minute clone) and add 3-4 oz. of roasted barley.
