    Irish Red

    Hey Fellow Brewers... I'm in the process of starting an Irish Red Ale and was looking for suggestions for best brand to brew for a first time brewer. Right now I'm strictly using malt extracts until I get more familiar with my equipment, then hopefully transition to dry ingredients. Anyway if...

    Should I expect an FG this high?

    I'm brewing a 1 gal batch of Irish Red, Raubeoir in Brewing Classic Styles. The original recipe listed an OG of 1.054 and an FG of 1.014. when I scaled the recipe I made a math error and actually used something like a quarter pound of extra DME when I brewed it. (By math error I mean I just...

    Irish Red Ale with higher than expected FG = bottle bomb??

    First time brewing and it was a lot of learning I brewed an Irish Red Ale, but forgot to take an OG. Recipe said 5-7 days primary fermentation but I did 10. I took a reading and it appeared to be 1.016-1.017, while the recipe says 1.014. I know now that I should have taken multiple readings...

    Craft The Perfect Draft - Irish Red Ale

    Brew day morning for me started out around an hour after sunrise on a cold and dreary Saturday morning. The night before I had collected fifteen gallons of reverse osmosis water in the large igloo cooler I use for preparing my brewing water. I had already picked up freshly crushed grains earlier...

    Craft The Perfect Draft - Brew The Irish Red

    Finally, I have a few days off in a row and they couldn't have come along at a better time. The end of the year always seems to be full of things to do and not a lot of time to left to do them all. This year I'm thankful that my brew room and pilot system improvements have given me the control...

    Bottle or wait? Do I need to prime still?

    For the full story, see my previous thread: But long story short I almost doubled my DME in my Irish red due to a conversion error. Now I have an extra strong, slightly sweet ale that's been fermenting two...

    So...I accidentally doubled my DME

    Stupid ****ing metric vs imperial in these recipes! :mad: I entered the wrong thing in my calculator and wound up doubling the DME in my Irish Red, I put it in the basement to ferment yesterday so I'm not sure there's anything to be done at this point? Is it saveable? Will it end up super sweet...

    Irish Red Grain Bill

    I had an Irish red at a festival this summer that was delicious and had a beautiful red color. I talked to the brewer a bit and he was one of these guys who talks a mile a minute in 5 directions at once :D So it was hard to decipher a recipe or even proportions from the steady stream of chatter...

    I'm not used to my beer finishing this quickly... Need some advice. (Pics Included)

    Hey guys! So I just got done checking up on the beer I brewed on July 2nd(8 days ago) and have a few questions about my findings.
