I did a rye IPA with nelson and simcoe that was nice. I had slightly more nelson than simcoe in the late additions, I think 50/50 would be a good mix. I had to look that Red X malt up, so it's a base malt that gives a red color? Have you worked with it before, and if so is it kind of Munich like?

I have a rye Ipa with nelson right now. Just dry hopped it a couple days ago. Just wanted to see how nelson and simcoe play together.

Red x is supposed to be somewhat similar to Munich 10 in a way. I'm doing a single malt amber ale with it this week.
