Brewed this three Weeks ago great beer, all I did different is added 2 pounds of honey to the wort as it came into the Brew kettle and stirred frequently came out great...... Oh yeah I listened to a lot of flogging Molly while I brewed lol. Would of liked it to be a bit more red but tastes great none the Less

looks good... did you use the caraaroma and melanoiden malt? if you did then it should be a deep red. unless your crush wasn't that good. only time I've seen it not have a real red color was on a bad crush

Yah I used it I think I may have had a bad crush the grain shop I started using just opened they are a bit new to things still or maybe I didn't get agood mix into the mash ton while I was adding water?, clearly it's still red just not as much a I'd like

it'll still be a tasty beer. I know the one time I had a bad crush and ended up lighter than planned.. it was a VERY tasty beer. so tasty I changed things around to use for a base beer for an APA or IPA

My LHBS doesn't have Caraaroma so he asked if he could sub an extra dark Crystal Malt that is 125-145L. I want to do this recipe as my first all grain batch. I'm still new to this and i'm not sure which grains do what.
What do you think this sub would do to the beer?

I could always order Caraaroma online, but the freight is 5 times the cost of the grain

Thanks!

here's the info on the grain...
Quote:
Very dark caramel malt with aromatic properties. Adds deep red color and aroma. Amber ales, dark lagers, bocks. Substitute for "Belgian Special B" or 120L caramel malts
so yes, you can substitute dark crystal malt.

I will however play with this a bit in my new manifold based mash tun...

Thanks i'll enjoy this one well into the playoffs!
UPDATE: Had some friends over to watch some football this past weekend and boy this red was a hit... the honey really shines in this beer as the abv was somewhere around 8.5 and the beer doesnt drink "hot".

cheers!

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

I just realized it sounds like I don't trust my LBHS owner, but I just wanted a second opinion.

I just placed an order with Brewmasters Warehouse. This will be in honor of our new baby boy due May 27. We chose an Irish name, Conner, so I wanted an Irish brew.

Thanks for the recipe and advice in the thread. I'll be brewing next Saturday. Cheers!

I'm doing a Partial Mash, here's what I came up with for 5.5 gal batch:

Ingredient Name Amount
Briess 2-Row Brewer's Malt 3 lbs, 8 oz
Briess Golden Light Dry Extract 3 lbs, 0 oz
Weyermann Cara Aroma ® 1 lbs, 0 oz
Weyermann Cara Foam ® 0 lbs, 8 oz
Weyermann Melanoidin 0 lbs, 8 oz
Weyermann Cara Red ® 0 lbs, 4 oz
Corn Sugar 0 lbs, 4 oz
Honey 1 lbs, 0 oz, Flameout
Crystal Pellets, 4.3% 1 oz @ 60 mins
Cascade Pellets, 6.8% 1 oz @ 30 mins
Whirlflock tab, 15 mins
White Labs California Ale

SW tells me to expect:
OG .059
FG .012
ABV about 5.5%
IBU 28
SRM 16

Quick update. Brewed yesterday, went smoothly. I threw in an extra 4oz of corn sugar I had left over, and OG was 1.061. Color looked great, and airlock had signs of life in 3 hrs and was going strong when I rechecked after 20 hrs. Now for the long painful wait.

Here are the notes from my partial mash since my recipe is in the post above.

Mash grain 60 mins at 152 to 154 with 2.25 gal strike water at 163 deg (I use oven on Warm setting)
Sparge in separate kettle with 2.25 gal water at 175 deg (teabag dunk, gentle stir, 10 min rest at room temp)
Combine wort from mash and sparge kettles and added about .75 gal water for 5 gal boil
Chill, pour into primary, added 1.5 gal water for 5.5 gal batch size.
OG post aeration 1.061
