Tasting Notes: Nice 'n malty
I've brewed a variation of this recipe a few times now. It's loosely inspired by the Irish red style.
8.5 lbs 2-row
1.5 lbs CaraRed (or caravienne)
1.5 lbs Dark Munich
2 oz Black Patent Malt
2oz Goldings @ 90 mins (5%AA)
1/2oz Cascade @ KO (steep for 20 mins before chilling)
Mash really, really high. 158 to 160F.
Taste is primarily malty with a nice satisfying body, and just a hint of bitter roastiness. Despite the relatively high IBU's, this one is a crowd pleaser. Swap out the late hops with anything you like, Challenger also makes a nice and slightly earthier interpretation. Use a yeast with some light character, 1084 and 1028 are my favourites, but in the future I may try 1450 'Denny's Favourite' with this one. The only dry yeast that I might consider would be Windsor; all the others attenuate far too much.
