feel free to change anything on it that you want.. will it be the same? no. That's best thing about homebrewing you can pretty much brew what ya want.

I was just wondering what some roast would add. Would you say your recipe is a traditional Irish res or more like and amber?

closer to a traditional Irish red.. deep red, malty, just enough hops to balance it out.

Awesome thanks for the reply I'll be brewing this up in January sometime and tap it on st. Parick's day!

What would you say the honey adds wondering what to expect with that because I've never used it before?

Also what about carafoam and caraaroma? I've never seen these at my lhbs? Is melanoidin similiar?

carafoam is the same as carpils... caraaroma is like an extra malty camamel 120-130... melanoidin isn't as dark.. the combo of caraaroma and melanoidin gives a very deep red.. almost a ruby red. together they also give a malty aroma and malty favor which is key to the style. the honey honestly doesn't add much in the way of flavor or aroma as its a very small amount and it gets boiled. it does add fermentables to boost the ABV a small amount. it can be left out and you'll still have a great beer.

I think the next time I make it I will use SafAle US 05 - Cali Yeast. This past brew I used WLP - 051 Cali Ale V.

I couldn't agree more

I always have great and predictable results with it.
