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 just took a bottle into my lhbs to see what they had to say. Overall they really liked everything about it. Just over carb.. I still will bring this into competition which is coming up next month. Cheers

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
