All that pale chocolate is going to give you muddy brown.  Good for English Brown Ale (I use it a lot) but not good if you want cherry red.  I use 12 oz CaraRed, 1 LB C-120 and 4 Oz Carafa Special II (430L) in a red ale and it IS cherry red.

Drew changed that for my 60th birthday.  It's based on number of posts, not age.  Guess I'd better do something about it.

I don't know you, but I'm really sorry to hear you turned 60.  It must be rough.  Maybe you should sit down.   ;)

Hi Everyone,

I like the ale's all the way around, but lean more to the Newcastle.  Since this was my first all grain I wanted some feedback on being creative and just doing something different.  I posted the receipe before I started brewing so in case I really didnt like it I would change to everyones suggestions.  The smoke cherry is there, but not rough on the aftertaste.  I hope this helps and thanks for the positive feedback.

And it didnt come out muddy brown. I will post a pic in a glass later this week. Happy holidays everyone. The person that said a strong mild amber hit the mark, I think.....
