Color me red

I can't seem to figure this out.

What grain(s) do I need to use to get a beer to have a "reddish" color?
I just keep getting shades of amber.

This is quite intriguing.

Are there any issues with the heating element coming in direct contact with the wort?
Scorching? Excess carmelization?

Starter blow off?

I have one pack of WYeast 1007 German Ale Yeast in a 2L flask in 1L of starter wort. Twice now it has overflowed the flask.
This is my first time with this yeast, is that normal for this strain?
