Default Red Rye IPA - best beer I've ever brewed

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP007

Original Gravity: 1.058
Final Gravity: 1.015 est

Tasting Notes: Hands down the best IPA I\'ve brewed.

This turned out to be a great red IPA. The combination of Columbus, Amarillo and Legacy (available from Hops Direct) worked perfectly with the small amounts of dark caramel malts, and the slight fruitiness of WLP007 put it over the top.

Caramel 40L - .5lb

What was your mash thickness and temp? Sounds great, I'd like to try!

18.2 pounds of grain and the original gravity is 1.058? You may want to re-check your figures =)
