Can you make two for side by side? Because I had great luck with 100% best malz red x at about 1.055. Very red and very tasty

might give that a shot next round. shooting for a little more complex malt structure on this one.

Curious to see how it comes out. I like the hop schedule.

I hear ya, but sometimes you're surprized. I'm learning that complex recipe doesnt always come out complex in the glass.

79% =1.036

and that's their minimum listed. I'd imagine 81% or 1.038 wouldn't be out of the norm.

I always use the minimum because it makes my efficiency look better  ;)

I have 10# red x so using all of it. I'd like to hit 1.052 OG so not sure if I can squeeze all that out of 100% red x. For those that have done the 100%, I've read its compared in taste to a light Munich.....is that reasonable comparison? I have carahell and carared on hand and could throw that in or even just a little light Munich to get my target OG perhaps.

wow 10# red x really dropped my PH vs projected. targeted 5.4 in brunwater, and it was 5.15! no worries as I added my baking soda to raise PH to 5.4.  must be the special malting process makes this base more acidic than your average base malt.

Interesting.  That may explain the sharpness I got. That was in an irish red so I kinda liked the sharp dryness, coupled with the irish yesst it made me imagine what a guiness amber would be like. I need to rebrew that some day.

Might be good to account for that in Bru'nwater. Like giving Rahr 2 row a 5L instead of a 2L, to account for the extra acidity.
