I'm looking forward to soon brewing a hoppy red ale, inspired by this recipe: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/...ginning-homebrewers-hoppy-red-ale-recipe.html I'd welcome your thoughts. Here's where I am at present: Fermentables: (20L batch, boil size 12L) 3 kg Pale Ale DME (half as late addition) 0.2 kg Honey (late addition) Steeping: 0.5 kg Carared 0.25 kg Caramunich III 0.056 kg Roasted Barley (my supplier kindly prepared that mix for me) Hops: I don't have the Centennial or Amarillo the recipe calls for, so I'm considering. I have: Cascade, Comet and Perle (all from Germany); Hallertau Blanc, Glacier, Polaris, Sorachi Ace, Pilgrim and Magnum. I'm thinking bitter (FWH, 40 mins) with Magnum + Comet (15g each), flavour with Cascade and Glacier at 5m. I thought about adding some Polaris, HB, or SA, but I feel like there's already enough stuff in there. I don't plan on dry hopping, that should suffice. For this, the calculator gives me OG 1.059, FG 1.014, IBU 43.24, BUGU 0.73. Seems a tad tame, maybe I should boil a bit longer or hop a bit harder? Haven't decided on yeast yet, S-04 or Nottingham I assume.
