Im currently drinking an Irish Red with 2oz roasted barley and that gives it quite a bit of flavour, it was quite strong to start with but three months on its mellowed nicely. I havent had any experience with victory and biscuit malts yet but that level sounds about right to me for the roasted barley. It sounds like a tasty brew so far to me

Pommy thats great information for my brew, thank you. I think I'll up mine from 1.5oz to 2oz just to make sure I get the roasted flavors.

The taste is certainly there in my Irish Red but that is with just pale extract and a lb of light crystal. I think 2oz would be what I would go for. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Some good advice here. I've also been looking at roasted barley for my own Irish Red recipe and was unsure of a good starting point. I was thinking 3oz but 2 might be better. I'm using it primarily for color but also to counter my biscuit/carapils, the first batch came out just a touch too malty.
