Any feedback on that point? How dark does this come out?
Thanks
Racking off the 1450 this weekend. When I take a gravity reading ill let you know but it will still need to age to get the full effect of the yeast

Thanks for posting the recipe. I brewed it yesterday and used 1.75mL Hop Shots in place of the Fuggles for my 6gal batch.
I will update when it's done (if I remember to...). Also I used Wyeast1272, and kept all other ingredients per the recipe.

I have done a couple Irish Reds before, and this is the first one that looked red in the boil bubbles. I'm excited to see it after the yeast do their business!!

You can half everything.....but remember the original recipe was for 10.5 gallons....so you probably want to do a 5.5 gallon brew to get 5 gallons out...so multiply all ingredients by (5.5/10.5) 52%.

Also, if your efficiency is different you will need to adjust for that.

Do you have brewing software like Beersmith?

Original post calls for 10 days primary.....anyone have any thought on weather 8 days in primary will be sufficient before transferring to secondary. I am breing this Saturday and turns out I will need to transfer after 8 days because of a schedule conflict.

What SG should I be looking for before transfering to primary.

i would just pass on the secondary. I'd prefer no to rush things so I would rather not secondary than rush it, IMO.

I normally do not secondary my brews....but the original post was specific about primary then secondary.....so perhaps secondary is not really necessary which would be great.....

If you don't normally secondary don't bother. There's nothing specific about this particular recipe that would require it. I'm sure the OP was just writing out his procedures that he would use for any ale. I have this (well, something inspired by it) in the fermenter now, and I'm just gonna leave it there for around 3 weeks until I'm ready to keg it.

I'm just going to primary mine too, because I have coffee stout that needs to take up the new 6gal Better Bottle at the same time. I may carbonate in the keg with sugar, instead of co2...since I have not done that before, and the keezer is full. Such a bummer
