Default Irish Red Help

Hi all,

One of our semi local micro breweries recently gave me a grain bill for one of their Irish Reds. I need help converting this to a mini mash recipe.

8% Crisp C77
8% Castle Caramunich
3% Roasted Barley
6% Crisp Caramalt
With the remainder being Crisp Pale

25 IBU's with GRM Magnum hops and finish with Fuggles @.5oz per 5 gallons. Wyeast 1968.

I am pretty new to this so constructing recipes is Latin at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is for a 5 gallon batch.

What size boil are you going to do, and how many pounds of grain do you want in the mash?

Ok, then. Let's see. How about:

4 lbs Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 49.69 %

2 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 24.84 %
10 oz C77
10 oz Caramunich Malt
8.0 oz Caramalt
3.0 oz Roasted Barley

1.00 Magnum 60 minutes
0.50 oz Fuggles 5 min

Depending on the AA% of the magnum, that should work.

Ok, I'm looking for the Crisp C77 on BMW and can't find it. Is there another name for it?

Crystal 77, might be kinda hard to find there, go for some basic Crystal 80 instead.

Go with simpson's dark: http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/...s-dark-crystal

it's a 75 SRM British Crystal and exactly what you want.
