I'm trying it out right now. 5# Golden Promise, 5# Red X, 2oz Caracas II special. Mashing at 152° in distilled with balanced profile. 30g EKG at 60. Wyeast Irish at 55° with a ramp up as krausen falls.

Can't wait to hear how that comes out. Sounds like a really good malt base with the GP for an Irish Red ( though I assume the color adjustment is Carafa II, unless you went to Venezuela lately)     :D   Sorry man, just havin' fun  !

We just did a 90% red-x beer at my brewery.. here's a picture of it… pretty intense red color, really nice malt profile. Will definitely be experimenting with this some more. I've also added percentages of Red-X to a couple of different lager recipes with nice results.

Our standard pale malt, Best Malz says Red-X can be used up to 100% of the grist but I chickened out at the last second on brew day.
