I think what you're proposing is not too far off the mark if you can still get the chocolate malt.

The meloidenin will get you a distinct red color.

Make sure to use the right weights though. Ok

Got done brewing this a couple hours ago. Followed recipe to a tee, the hydrometer reading was 1.042, tasted a little spicy from the second hop addition. Tastes good tho! My NON-BEER DRINKING roommate enjoyed sampling that hydrometer sample even. I'm looking forward to drinking the finished product. Other roommates are already asking for bottles of it cuz it smelled so good boiling. xD Great recipe, I'll post pictures after mine moves into secondary in a week.

Well I just popped open my first bottle of this, and I think I may have done something wrong. Because it tastes like it's missing something. It tastes good! Don't get me wrong. But there is definately something... Maybe I missed steeping one of the grains?

Having read through this red thread I would really like to brew it. Given my inexperience, I would appreciate it if the experts here could look at the ingredients I plan to buy and verify that I have not screwed anything up before I purchase it all.

The original recipe from way back at the beginning of the thread is all of the left side of the table, and the stuff I have identified on Northern Brewer is in the right hand column of the attached jpg. Have I picked out the right things?

I can't attach the Excel file,which is too bad because the NB ingredients are hyperlinks, but y'all probably can tell just by the names.

Thanks very much,

I brewed this a long time ago. Back in April. I still haven't bottled it. Do I need to add more yeast when I bottle?

This looks OK. The carapils is also called dextrine malt. Not sure if your sub is correct.

Checked, your sub is a light caramel malt. Use this... http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/brewing/brewing-ingredients/maillard-malts-malted-grain/briess-carapils-malt.html

Yes - I would or allow it more time to carb.

Thanks very much!! Nobody has posted on this thread for a few months and I was unsure if you were even watching it. I really appreciate both the review and the link! This will be my second 5 gallon brew. My first was about 25 years ago or so, and we did not have the benefit of easy internet and forums

Having read the whole thread (and the all grain version thread, which may be next), I am really looking forward to doing this
