Beer Style: Irish Red Ale  (9D)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Irish Red Ale


The roast barley and 80L crystal should make for a deep red color, maybe too dark. I'll have to see when it's done.

Roast barleys differ greatly in color. What Briess sells, for example, is only 300L, whereas De Wolf's and other imports are over 500L. If you use anyone else's roast barley, scale back the amount accordingly.

The victory and cara-pils malts are strictly to taste, but the potato shouldn't affect the flavor in any way. The yeast is known to finish sweet.


  • 4 oz Briess Roast Barley
  • 8 oz Briess 80L Crystal
  • 8 oz Briess Victory
  • 8 oz Briess Cara-Pils
  • 8 lbs Briess 2-Row (your 6-7 lbs of pale extract is equiv.)
  • 1 potato, peeled and grated, added to grist
  • 1 oz Cascade (6%), boiling
  • 1 oz Fuggle, finish
  • WYeast European Ale
