Cool, thanks. i was asking about CaraRED in particular as it's recommended for a nice red color.
Also, 500 posts! And almost 100K views. Very popular thread (and beer, apparently!).

I've only brewed on my equipment one time with the help of my buddy who has been all grain brewing for about 4 years. On Sunday, this recipe will be my first solo at all grain(really first solo attempt at brewing in general) Wish me luck!
Good luck. If you use the WLP001 and make a starter, make sure you use a blow off. I wasn't originally, but I caught it in time.

I used Caraaroma and Melanoiden for the red color. trust me... it has plenty of red.

yeah.. seems this is one of the most popular Irish Reds... there's a reason for that

Just brewed this yesterday. I changed it up a little and it ended up much more brown than red. Any thoughts?

2.25 gal in to fermenter
4 lbs Pale 2 row
.5 lbs CaraAroma
.5 lbs CaraFoam
.25 lbs Melanoiden
4 oz Honey
.5 oz Crystal at 60 min
.25 oz Crystal at 15 min
1/2 tsp Irish moss @ 15 min

OG of 1.052 @ 60*F

I'm sure it will still turn into beer, but was hoping for more red. My mash temps were all over the place with new pot, and stovetop had a hard time keeping wort at a good boil. Took more like 90 min to get from 3.5 down to 2.5 gal. Bubbling nicely now in the brewdemon fermenter. What can I do next time for more red?

Brewed this on Sunday. This is my first all grain. Brew day went great can wait to give this a try.

Been on a break from brewing while I've been gathering my all grain equipment. Just kicked my last keg tonight its going to be a long 3 weeks
