Caraaroma is a good to use to get a nice red color, and it's much darker than Carared, so you don't need to use as much.

So I am bumping this. I brewed today and I have a question for everyone. Beersmith has my calculated OG at 1.062, but when I measured it it was closer to 1.058 (hard to see with foam, but I think that is perfectly close). So what exactly happened? Was my mash tun not efficient as beer smith calculated? This beer is going to be hoppy, I think. I seriously can't wait until it's ready.

What happened is your efficiency wasn't what you assumed or your volume was off. But seriously, that is close enough and very good for a first try. Read up on efficiency but no need to push it, just aim for predictability.
