So odd. Really, only 50% of the bottles, so it was like a game of Russian Roulette.

Brewed this today as my first all-grain batch. Switched up the hops a little bit, as my LHBS didnt have crystal. Ended up at about 1.065. Boiled off more than I thought I would, so ended up wit ha flat 5 gallons into the fermenter.

Thanks for the recipe. I'll see you in a month.

Thanks for posting up this recipe. I will be picking up my ingredients today from my LHBS in hopes of brewing this Sunday, and have already ordered the caraaroma from homebrew warehouse as recommended.

One question I have is since this recipe calls for dry yeast, no yeast starter is required, is this correct? If you were to use liquid yeast, which strain would you use, and how long would you let it ferment? Wanting to get some practice in for yeast starters as I've only made it once.

Thanks!

the recipe calls for Whitelabs WLP001 California Ale yeast which is a liquid yeast. When I make a starter I make a 1.040 gravity wort using water and extract. I normally make 1 quart for ale and 2 quarts for lager. I use a stir plate and it's ready to pitch in 24 hours. without a stir plate I would let it go for 48-72 hours and then pitch the entire starter. If you wanted to skip the starter use US-05 dry yeast.


if you don't have a stir plate they're easy to make. I followed these directions http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-stirplate-cheap-easy-build-86252/

Much obliged for the response. Also, thanks for including the link on building a stir plate. This will be very helpful. Now off to my LHBS.

I've brewed this recipe twice with a different recipe called Better Red Than Dead in between. While BRTD is very nice, my buddies and I all feel Raging Red is the better brew. It's definitely a regular on my brew list. Thanks for posting!
