My husband would like to make a red ale and we're set up to brew one gallon batches. I'd like to buy the ingredients for him as a Father's Day gift. Anyone have a reliable recipe they'd like to share, or can point me to?

Thanks!

Two ideas-
1- check w/ your LHBS for recipe ideas
2- if you have a red ale recipe for a larger size batch plug it into a brewing program & scale it down. There are several free or free trial programs on the market

Thanks, but I don't have a LHBS close enough by and I've never brewed a larger batch - we're brand new to brewing. So I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.

He'd like American Red.

Thanks - that one looks great! Good to know the recipe will scale so easily - this opens a lot of doors for newbies such as myself.

If you want an Imperial Red, Oskar Blue's G'Knight is a great beer to clone.
