No pictures this time, though I typically have them on my Counter Insurgency Brewing FB page. I've been using California Ale yeast for a while now. I brewed a blond ale, then washed the yeast and reused into my experimental 1.125 OG ale, then washed and split that yeast cake into two more beers, this one and Revvy's Kiss Yer Cousin Kentucky rye common ale.

Here are a couple pictures from my gravity sample. It started at 1.071 and is now at 1.014. It tastes DELICIOUS! If the gravity is the same tomorrow Im going to transfer to secondary and dry hop. Hopefully bottle on Thursday

WOW, I was looking for a different beer to brew and I picked this one. I brew 10 gallon batches and am too damn cheap to buy a $20 recipe program, so I simply doubled the exact recipe posted by the OP. Turned out GREAT! Albeit slightly stronger than intended. DARK red and slightly more bitter than what you would expect from a red ale. But I'm an IPA guy anyway... Good stuff, and just in time for Christmas!

Brick_Haus recommended!

Thanks to the OP for this one.

Glad you like it

My last batch I changed the hops. I bittered with Magnum and put over and ounce each of Citra and Centennial in at 15 minutes and the just under an ounce of each in at 1 minute. I think it was about 70 IBUs. It came out really good as a red IPA.

Hey guys, I tried to scale this recipe up to 5.5 gallons using Brewsmith and failed somewhere at it, as I had only a 1.051 OG. (hit 1.010 FG) Here's what Beersmith gave me:

9.60 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 86.7 %
0.40 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 2 3.6 %
0.40 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 3 3.6 %
0.40 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 4 3.6 %
0.15 lb Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 5 1.4 %
0.10 lb Carafa II (412.0 SRM) Grain 6 0.9 %
0.02 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)

I hit 79.4 Effeciency during my mash. Beer definitely tastes good, but is a little sweet at 5.4%.

Should I have had more pale in this?

1.010 seems dry to me? Am I missing something about determining the sweetness of a recipe aside from attenuation? Curious as to the input of others on your question. Brad Smith talked about amber ales and recommended 10-20 percent crystal malts, which seems inline with this recipe.
