  1. Ronnie Aldrin Silva Home brewer

    Hi, I'll make a Irish Red Ale, affectionately nicknamed by me as "Too Red", using 75% of BestMalz Red-X, 15% of BestMalz Pilsen and 10% of BestMalz Caramel Light. I'm planning to use the Yeast S-04 and East Kent Goldings hops. These yeast and hops are in harmony with the Reinheitsgebot? Here in Brazil, I'm ansious to play!

    Ryan and I will be making our version of a Red IPA called Red Headed X. We are going 100% BestMalz Red X to achieve that lovely red hue. We will be hopping this one up with Zues, Amarillo, Cascade, and Chinook for a very citrus hoppy beer with Wyeast 1056 American Ale and dry hopped with Citra and and Chinook. The advantages of being brewers we will be using two types of yeast the other half of this will be fermented with 2278 Czech Pils from Wyeast and no Dry hopping, to make an American style pilsner. We are ready for tomorrow here in Eastern Oregon, USA!!

    We will be doing an Irish Red Ale, the RedX accounts for about 60% grain bill. Fuggles hops @30 minutes should ensure a nice crisp not overly bitter European style ale
