I will be taking the first test of my Brewer's Best Red Ale kit tonight. I think the steeping grains were crystal 60 and black patent, with either light and/or amber extract. Not much hops in it though
Of course not, I was actually going to recommend adding some hops based on what you were asking for. Although if you want my advice, I think instead of 2oz cascade I'd go with 1oz of a higher a-acid hop, centennial would probably be good. Assuming a 3gal boil, by my numbers that brings you from about 31 IBU (.526 BU:GU, or "balanced") to about 47 IBU (.796 BU:GU, or "extra bitter").
