Ken, that German Pils looks nice. 

Here's a terribly bad example of photography (basement lighting!) but nonetheless... here is a RedX Red Ale with all Mandarina Bavaria hops.  Really nice beer and super-saturated red color.

I would describe it as "super malty" and almost like brewing with Munich II.  I hopped this one up pretty good in the hopes of balancing out the malt.  The pic I posted is 100% RedX as the base malt and then 4 ounces of Special B and 4 ounces of Thomas Fawcett Dark Crystal #2.  I was going for NUCLEAR RED.  It's pretty red but the pic doesn't show it very well.  Cheers Beerheads.

Yep, Best really has a winner with the Red X. Not only is the color really appealing, but they didn't sacrifice anything on the flavor side with it either. I keep saying that I'm going to pick up a sack and use it as my house base malt for a while, and I might do it soon.

I have a feeling that it won't end up red, but an all Red X barleywine sounds like it would be a damn nice beer.

I can't take good pics of clear beers. Stupid humidity causes condensation too fast.

I've done an all munich barley wine and it's pretty intense but it is nice.

Nice looking beers, fellas. I might have to pick up a sack of Red X for my next homebrew club bulk order instead of Munich. I've only brewed with that stuff once and I remember it being Munich-like, just a little different. A half and half Best Vienna and Red X pale ale sounds tasty too.

I have a pack of 2124 expanding and getting ready for a starter.  One of the beers I plan to make with it is a Czech Amber Lager for lack of a better term... 55% Weyermann pils + 45% RedX.  Saaz hops and 2124 Bohemian Lager yeast.  I'm guessing it would come in somewhere around 8-10 SRM.  Mash lower (maybe 149°) and hit the late part of the boil nicely with Saaz.  I wouldn't want the RedX to weigh it down much so a little SO4 in the water might crisp it up a bit.  Cheers Beerheads!

That sounds like a good beer. I'd like to brew something like that sometime.
