Alrighty, I placed my order at my LHBS for this recipe. The only subs I had to make were Light Chocolate malt, Fuggles for Goldings, and WLP051 for Wyeast.

I'll be brewin' this up on Saturday. Can't wait!

I did two batchs about 4 weeks ago. I did an American Ale and this red. I am JUST NOW putting this into the secondary. I hope its not going to mess anything up. Im going to leave it in the secondary for a few weeks too. I should be okay right?

We were overwhelmed when we made this and probably left it for about 7 weeks on primary and it came out amazing. Personally, I would say that you shouldn't feel like you need to do a secondary and could bottle it now if you wanted...

Just dry hopped today with 1oz Willamette. That should add a nice aroma to it...

Also, when i put it in front of the window when dry hopping, it is seriously fire engine red. the color on this badboy is amazing!

I'm stoked to try out this recipe! Would love to do a full boil, though. Is this possible? Let me know what may need to be tweaked.

Regarding the recipe, I'm worried my local brew shop doesn't have everything I need (will drop by tomorrow), so I've been looking at NB for extras to get shipped my week's end. I only see Briess DME, and I'm not seeing the four malt variations you mention. Can you point me in the right direction?

The recipe and reviews sound fantastic. Can't wait to get this fall brew going this weekend.

Earlier in this thread Sherlenka linked the Beer Reciprator - that'll help you hit your target IBU's/color/ABV/etc. I did a full-boil of this last night and I still ended up using the same amount of hops - 5% and 3.2% respective AAUs aren't enough to turn me away.

Regarding the other malts, your LHBS should have at least most of them - look under grains if they have a website.

I ended up with an OG of 1.053 - will most likely combat the extra IBUs. Can't wait!

I racked this in my secondary and it does have a great red tint to it. Im going to put it in a keg soon and let it condition there. That will give me time to build my kegarator and get all my stuff together piece by piece!

Here is the calculator link: http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator

Just tweak the 60 minute hop addition to hit 20-22 IBUs.

Caramel Pils Malt is the one that befuddles most people. Its basically a 5 SRM crystal malt. (Subsitute 50% 10L Crystal & 50% Carapils: so use about 1/4# of each to make 1/2# of Caramel Pils)
