I did something similar to this, except I used British ale yeast, 1/2 base of golden promise, some special and victory malt added, some roast barley to add a deeper redness, a lighter hopp profile, and about .25 lb of cane sugar.

so quite a bit different but quite similar :P

Currently sitting in my cool brewings cooler, and will continue to do so till the Sunday after next when I start bottling.

Thanks for the great recipe! I've been wanting to do an IRA.
This is a great Fall/Winter ale, perfect for a hoppy Thanksgiving. Are you bittering with the Amarillo? That would be my choice if I were to use only those two hops.

Cheers

Yep, bittering with Amarillo, then the other additions are split between Amarillo and Cascade. I matched the IBUs appropriately. Probably going to dry hop just with Cascade. This Amarillo is in short supply this year, and I only got a pound.

It's gonna be great!

I am very pleased with this lighter version of the IRA at this point. It still maintains the defining characteristics of this beer; complex malt and aggressive yet smooth hops. If I have mashed in the 154-155 range to get a bit more body, this beer would be outstanding. To summarize, I upped the volume of the brew to 6 gallons, decreased the total crystal malts to 6% using C-120 instead of C-80, 2oz chocolate malt(450L) instead of 1 oz black patent(550L) and changed the hops to entirely. Note: 7c's pellets have a great aroma as a dry hop.
Also, I used a slightly ligher munich malt, 6L instead of 10L. The color on this version is more classic red than the original, which is a bit darker. Finally, I have moved to the local organic malts I am fortunate to get at a great price in Portland.

Original:
OG 1.065
IBU 70-75
5.5 Gallons
SRM 17

Pale Ale Malt 6.5 lbs
Munich type 1 (10L) 5 lbs.
Crystal 40L .75 lbs
Crystal 90L .5 lbs
Black malt 1 oz

All whole hops
Simcoe(13% aa) 1 oz 60 min
Amarillo(9.3% aa)1 oz 30 min
Cascade (7% aa)1 oz 5 min

Simcoe .5 oz dry hops
Amarillo 1 oz dry hops
Cascade .5 oz dry hops

Mash 153 for 60 min
Collect 7 gallons
Boil 90 min

American Ale yeast.

"Lower Gravity/IBU version"

OG 1.060
IBU 60
6 gallons
Color 16.7 SRM

6.5 lbs Great Western Organic 2-row
5.0 lbs Great Western Organic Munich (6L)
.5 lbs Great Western Organic C-40
.25 lbs Great Western Organic C-120
.125 lbs. Briess Organic Chocolate Malt(2 oz)

1 oz Magnum (14%) at 30 min
2 oz Centennial (10.1%) at 5 min
2 oz Cascade (8.2%) at 5 min

to dry hop with 2oz Falconers Flight 7 Cs pellets

Slurry of Safale 05 from wet hop IPA
Fermenting at 63f in basement.

This is the latest, lighter version. I love the color, a classic red ale. Perfect for a Friday evening

Think the lighter color is due more to the lighter Munich or less crystal?

Both, (I use BeerTools) SRM for each malt is as follows:

Original:
2-Row 1.6
Munich 5.17
Crystal 90 4.65
Crystal 40 2.07
Black Malt 3.55
------------
17.04 SRM

Lighter Version:
2-Row 1.2
Munich 4.79
Crystal 40 1.92
Crystal 120 2.87
Choc Malt 5.69
----------
16.47 SRM

Important note regarding color, I have moved to a 60 minute boil from 90 minutes, so some of the decrease in darkness is probably due to less carmelization of the wort. You will see I am getting more color from the 2 oz of chocolate and less from the Munich and crystal malts. Also, the increased volume of the recipe brings the SRM down accordingly.

Great looking recipe. I love smooth, rich, hoppy amber ales . . .. and this one looks to fit the bill perfectly. I have a standby amber recipe that I have brewed for a couple years, but looking for another take on what I have been doing. Brewing this tomorrow - thanks for posting.

Default So glad I brewed this up!


I finally brewed this up and so far so good. Smells great even so early in the game. I'm 10 days in. I just threw in the dry hops today. I did an OZ each of Simcoe, Amarillo and some homegrown Centennial instead of Cascade.
I can't wait for this one. Perfect time of year for this style too! Samples taste great!
Thanks for the recipe!!

I might have to try the lighter version too.

Finally got this beer in the keg. This beer is soooo good!! if you are on the fence or have it on the schedule to brew later, you have to brew it now. This is one of the beers I have brewed that I would take over almost any commercial red/IRA beer I've tried (and i live in Portland, OR, home of some good hoppy red ales). Great recipe!
