EDITTED: Just calling it a red ale now
I also now know none of my grains actually needed mashing... heh, oh well!
It's a pretty basic recipe (and my first attempt at making my own), so here is hoping it is good! Any critiques would be greatly appreciated. I know now by sparge maybe should have been a big larger, but my OG is pretty good since I am still using so much extract that I have some wiggle room there.
6 lbs Pale LME
1 lbs Crystal Malt - 90L (wanted to use 80L, but the LHBS only had 90L)
0.5 lbs Roasted Barley
Mash for 30 mins @ 155F - 2 gal
Sparge for 10 mins @ 170F - 1.5 gal
Add 1/2 LME, start boil:
60 mins (start) - 1.0 oz Northern Brewer Pellets (AA 8.5)
15 mins left - rest of the LME
10 mins left - 0.25 oz Irish Moss
5 mins left - 1.0 oz Northern Brewer Pellets (AA 8.5)
Notes: No idea how to calc efficiency, but since I seemed to hit my SG pretty well, I'm going to go with ~75%. It's still fermenting, so I'll update this when it's done
