I just plugged this recipe into qbrew and the ABV came out to be only 3.3%, is that correct? That's pretty low. If that's the case, I have another pound of DME that I could throw in there to bump it up to about 4.2%.

Its about 3.6%. If it goes to 1.008 3.6% - If it hits 1.004 then it will be 4%.

It depends on the yeast attenuation. How much it wants to eat...

The style is low abv for session drinking. You can drink lots of beers without getting wasted.

If this is your 1st , try this as it is written. If you add the extra DME you will need to add more hops to hit the right IBUs or bitterness.

Any reason I can't just use 3.64lbs. of light DME instead of using both LME and DME?

I used this recipe with the following changes: 2 oz of goldings for 60 min instead of 1 oz, 2 lbs of DME instead of 1 lb, and Nottingham yeast (dry, rehydrated). I doubled the DME to get more ABV and as my luck has it the Nottingham quit at 1.020 (from 1.049) so the beer is at it's original strength anyways.

My sample tasted great, and it's kegged, carbing up:

Yes, its a bit low 3.64lbs will get you 1.033OG and 4lbs will get you 1.037OG.

The target is 1.035, but either way will not make much of difference.

Hey Schlenkerla-

I just stumbled upon this recipe, I've been in the process of creating my own english pub ale....it's pretty similar to this. I did your Irish Red...pretty good.

Thanks for all of your info!

Schlenkerla,

What would your opinion be on dry-hopping this beer with an ounce of either cascade or citra? I love the idea of having a nice session ale with a hint of hop aroma/finish. Would that work in this case?

It would be good if the ibu's where kept the same. It would be basically be an american pale ale. You need to use a recipe calculator to get it right. Try Http://www.recipator.com

I think it would be pretty darn good. Slightly darker gold color with a red hue.
