Default All-Grain - Bernie's Righteous Red Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast American Ale

Hi Bernie. I'm brewing tomorrow (hopefully) what I've been thinking of as an American Red too. I'm going in a little different direction, using Munich as my base malt to give it a little more malt backbone and using the White Labs East Coast yeast, again to accentuate the malt, and uping the IBUs a little.

My main question though was about the red color - I was planning on using a small amount of roast barley added to the mash just during the mash out and sparging - to get color and not flavor. Does your 30 L Caramel in the mash give a red color?

Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Yes, the crystal is the main color factor

Default Thanks!


Brewed this yesterday, used a few variations on the grain but thanks for the recipe! Ended up with 5.5 gallon batch.

Pale Malt 2 Row 5.5#
Caramel Malt 40 L 2#
Caramunich II 45L 2#
Castile Biscuit 25 L 0.5#
White Wheat 2L 0.25#

Did a 70 min mash in, sort of my magic number, this was my third all grain so I'm still stumbling around int he dark a little

Great recipe. Just bottled mine last night. Added about a half ounce of black when I brewed it and the color is gorgeous.
Even warm and flat right out of the bottling bucket the flavor is superb. (can't let that last 1/2 bottle go to waste)
