Wooo...I brewed this on Saturday.....normally I get a total efficiency of 70-72%....and somehow I got an efficiency of around 80% and ended up with OG of 1.059....so this will be a little more potent than the design....as long as it tastes good that is fine with me!

Planning to brew this weekend. Using Canadian 2-row instead of Maris Otter and Willamette instead of Fuggles, as that's what i have in stock. Hopefully it'll have developed enough by St Patrick's day!

Should be rdy and williamette is a perfect sub(what i had in stock and used) but marris is different then two little maltier so it will taste slightly different but good non the less! Good luck!

I've handed this brew out to many many friends and all have said it was AWESOME!

2 are EXTREME red guys and they want more.

I MIGHT be brewing 10 more gallons this weekend.!?

Finally got around to brewing this recipe. Since I used Canadian 2-row and dry yeast (US-05) and I wanted a maltier beer, I mashed at 156F. Brewed 10.5 gal that came in at 1.050 OG.

I can't justify calling this an Irish Red since I used all American ingredients (except for the British Roasted Barley and Kent Goldings), so I called this beer Irish Inspired American Red Ale.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Just been to my LHBS thought id give this recipe a go. Just wondering if anyone here had any experience in using Brambling Cross hops at all, as i was thinking of using these in place of Fuggles and Golding hops.

Oh yeah and . . . YAY MY FIRST POST

Popped the cap on my first bottle. Very good indeed. Modest head, good lace and a malty finish. What more could a man want....

Is a tad dark for a red but thats a minor tweak for the next run.

Highly recommended for those of you who perfer malt over hops.
