    what would you use for the target profile in the water calculator profile for an Irish red ale? I used Edinburgh (scothish ale malty) but it doesn't seem to fit the style.

    I'm no expert, but have had good results using color options when there's no specific profile available for the style. In this case, I'd use an amber balanced or amber full body profile.

    I don't see anything that says Amber in my Brewersfriend target water profile.

    Unfortunately I haven't brewed in awhile, moving, and kitchen renovation.

    I would aim for the amber balanced profile though, since it's medium light to medium body.
