looks very tasty. Have not made an Irish Red myself yet, looks like a good place to start. Safe to assume MO would also work as the base?


for sure Frank on MO..personal preference

+1. Golden Promise works great for it, too.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

It's awesome stuff - it's Scottish so it's in most all of the good Scottish ales. Doesn't have the level of biscuity character that MO has. I actually prefer it for Irish Red.

Any updates on this one, just curious to how the final recipe turned out?

I ended up brewing a red lager instead with 100% red x. The sample looks a lot less red than I was expecting however it is still in the fermenter. Depending on how the color turns out, I may do the Irish Red malt bill in place of the red x.

I've had some great luck with the Irish Red ale all grain kit from Northern Brewer.  Just brewed it for a 2nd time a few weeks ago.  Can't wait to try and see how it comes out.  Used Nottingham Ale yeast this time, as opposed to US-05.

I just checked out that recipe and find it interesting that there are no UK ingredients other than the 2 oz of english chocolate malt. I am sure it is good but it seems to be more of an international red ale ;). I was going to use American hops and yeast so I guess mine was is the same boat...
