Looks pretty good here, I wouldn't recommend changing anything.

If that's your first solo recipe formulation, keep doing whatever you're doing, because you're pretty much hit it bang-on!

I think your saccharification rest is a degree or two high; I'm interested to read why you chose that temperature.

Cheers,

Bob

I was afraid that 151 - 152 would leave it too dry. I tried to keep Smithwick's in mind as a guide for this, and wanted a more malty beer. Think 154 is too high?

Nope! It's your thought process I was looking for, and you gave it me. Makes perfect sense.

Hope it comes out like you expect!

Cheers,

Bob

Irish Red should finish pretty dry. I recommend mashing at 150-152. 150 would probably get you close to Smithwicks. I did a red at 154 and it's too malty, it's more like a Scottish Export 80/-.

This recipe will be fairly true to style. Nice job.
