O.k. I'm attempting this one today that I found on the Database.. Looking for advice on the mash temp for this one since there is none listed. I'll go with your advice I'm thinking medium body batch sparge? Around 154 for an hour? Your thoughts would be appreciated! Planning to brew soon as I have the afternoon off..
Cheers!

154F is good for an Irish Red. That gives you more body & maltiness.

Thanks guys!! I went with 154. Actually wound up around 153.5 but I figured close enough on this one. Smelled delicious cooking... Must be all that Vienna... Looking forward to sampling this one
