India vs. Ireland

First off amarillo IPA,
9# 2-row
1# 120L
0.5# Carapils
1Tablespoon chocolate malt
1 oz Chinook
4 oz Amarillo (1 in secondary)

Next up, my first shot at a red.
9# 2-row
1# Munich
0.5 # Carapils
0.25# roasted malt 350L
0.25# 60L
0.25# 120L
1 oz cascade
2 oz pearle

I was going to use fuggles for the red, but the HBs was out. I have not used pearle as an aroma/ later addition hop, but it is leaf, so we will see.

Any thoughts?

BTW fantastic day in NC. Highs of about 70, chrystal clear day, light breeze.

Second mash is in.

First wort hopping with an ounce of Cascade, in the red.

1.058 Og on the IPA lower than anticipated, no big deal.

I suppose it's too late now, but 1 lb of 120 is a LOT.

I've used that grain bill before and been very happy with it. Never with amarillo, but with cascade. Rich full flavored IPA.

Ever used Pearle hops? I opened the pack, and subtle spice aroma. I am intrigued. might be a nice red?

Red wound up with a OG of 1.060
Nice color, amber I would say, but not 'red'.
Melanoidin I guess is the key to red. but it is so strong flavored, bloody or muddy.

Any thoughts on the pearle?


I think I need a bigger pot!!

You definitely need a bigger pot, my man.

Check it. Werd.

Good luck with the double-header, Sean. I'm a big fan of double-headers---if I'm gonna go through the trouble of taking the time out of my day and getting out all the equipment, I might as well make it count.

A couple weeks ago, I did 3 in a day. Whew!
