I have some questions though

1- When you make the partial boil do you use half of the LME for the boil and half LME at knockout?

2- Will chloramine used by the water service be a problem?

3- Have someone here used Safale US-05 yeast for this beer?

Thanks if someone could help.
1.) Use all the LME for the 60min boil. This is standard for most beers unless you are making light beer and the light gold color is what you are after. Doing a 50/50 addition at 60 and say the last 10 is to reduce potential caramelization.

2.) If the water is clean and tastes good use it. I use wal-mart spring water. Gallon jugs with the sealed top. Never use the crap from the water purification machine. I have heard too many bad stories with people getting bad water from them. Ultra-pure water has an affinity to attract microscopic debris. This only when they are not maintained properly.

3) Go ahead use S-O5. This is an Irish Red, it tends to be an American-Irish Style.

Thanks a lot you've been great at sharing your recipes and answering all kind of questions. BTW I'll do your English Pub Ale too; it sounds very refreshing.

A friend and I made 10 gallons back at the end of October. It came out great. We both had friends and family drinking it though the holidays. Everyone who tired it really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe.

How long has it been?

4-6 weeks is ok. I have done done 8 & 12 weeks. I find the yeast takes longer to fully carb your beer the longer you wait on this. This seems to be the case on the more of the flocculant yeasts.

If you stir it up a little during the siphoning it would help. By this I mean ever so slightly so you get some element of yeast into the bottle.
