If anyone is curious about this beer. The measurements for the grain bill are not accurate. This recipe is designed from my Irish Red called French Big Papi Imperial Irish Red. I rinse the mash grains again after making Big Papi. Until I make it I can only assume what I'm going to end up with so just to get an idea of the OG, this beer is a 3rd of the original grain bill. I changed the Hops and Yeast. I was drinking my Lil Papi Irish Red and it seemed to me that a raspberry amber would be delicious. The concept is turn your trash into stash. Since imperial beers leave behind so much converted sugars and have lower efficiencies, the next best thing to do is turn it into another beer. 2 beers for the price of one.. Enjoy!

The water absorption for the original grain bill is 2.7gal based on 0.15gal of water per 1 lb of grain absortion rate. That's a ballpark so I am removing 2.5gal from second rinse of the grain bed.
