Just pulled a sample off of the primary to get a gravity reading and the color is a little too light. Looks like the SRM is about 13. Any ideas on what I can add/change to darken it up a bit the next time I brew this one?

Is there an Extract version of this?

I really want to try it out.

Thanks!

Just kegged my second batch of this and I have to say it fell well short of the first batch I did.

This time around i had to use non-malted roatsed barley of 300L because i cant find the roasted barley in 450L anymore. It wasnt a dark red beer at all. I also messed up my brewing technique somewhere because the OG was low and the Fg was low.

Brewed about 3 weeks ago, hitting every number and mashing at ~156F. Except for a minor hop stoppage(which is leading me to avoid the 2x 90" bends I use), the brew day went perfect.

Fermented @ 63F for two weeks and counting, planning to keg and crash cool some point next week.

Sampled and tasted last night with a FG of 1.016. I thought I detected some esters, but the taste was what I'd expect from a Irish Red.

Looking forward to the final product soon.

I am almost through enjoying the last pint of this fine Irish Red. Keeps getting smoother with age. Low hop aroma and taste with a great malty profile. I will be brewing this one again. I do need to tweak the specialty grains a bit to get some more red/ruby color in the beer.

went into the keg today. On paper, this beer went as close to the recipe's numbers as I can get. I'll crash cool and carb this week, posting thoughts at some point.

Will do as soon as I get it carbed and start bottling, which should be some time this weekend.

I will agree with you based on what I saw. The color did not seem to be all that "ruby red" but the taste seemed to be there as far as I can tell.

I'll also try to grab some other irish red's from the nearby craft brew store to compare color/taste.

I brewed this about a year ago and I got a dark red color and excellent brew. The second time, I got crap efficiency and it was way lighter than before.

Very interested in your rating since your numbers indicate you nailed it.
