I was wondering if I can get some feed back on this recipe. Its my first crack at making one and not buying a kit. Any thoughts on what to change or add? I heard of some people adding Beats to get a deeper red?

try cutting you Carmel 80 to 4 oz and adding 4oz of roasted barley. . . .
it will give you a richer "red" color (levibond of 18) and will give you that bit of a roasted flavor people look for in a Irish Red


no beats . . . .
