Green flash hop head red clone
This is one of my favorite beers and I would love to get a clone that is close.
I pieced this together from a bunch of different sources. I went with the ingredients and amounts that seemed to be a consensus.
U.S. 2-row pale malt - 9.5 lb's
Light munich - 3 lb's
Carapils - 1 lb
Crystal 120 - 1 lb
mash at 153F-154F
60 min 1.2 oz nugget
10 min .5 oz amarillo
5 min .5 oz amarillo
1 min 1 oz amarillo
dryhop 3 oz amarillo
Some recipes I found included a mix of crystal 40 and 60. Some of the recipes did not include carapils but many of those stated that the body was lacking compared to Green Flash. The ones with carapils were 1 pound. A couple of recipes had a pound of flaked oats as well.
What do you all think? Should I throw some medium crystal in there?
Would the oats be an overkill or worth a try?
Happiness is in the eye of the beer holder
