If you like Red Ales, then I know you'll love this beer!

Subscribed. Can you recommend a good commercial red to try? Not blown away by Smithwicks and figured Sam Adams was a waste of money.

I brewed this about a month ago. I find the color of this to be great, but to me it's very limited in terms of malt profile. I did 10 gallons and split into two fermentations, one with irish ale yeast and one with us-05.

The US-05 is clean and more dry than the Irish. The irish has a different flavor profile and is a bit more complex.

Thanks a lot for the recipe. I'm thinking mine still needs a bit more time to age, but so far I'm not wild about this one. It's okay, but just not especially interesting or refreshing. Seems almost a bit too dry with the california ale yeast. Not enough malt character for me to deal with the dryness.

Interesting recipe, though.

Hi.

Replace the base with Maris Otter if you are looking for a more malty profile. Also, you could mash around 155 - 160.

Cheers!

Did you sparge this @ 170?
Also, how much water did you use to mash?
Sorry this is my first all grain.

I do BIAB (Brew In A Bag) so there was no sparge at all for me. I did do a mashout at 168 for 10 minutes though.
