Recipe Notes:

Simcoe 20 min addition is actually FWH!

I just transferred one to secondary yesterday where I used Canada Malting pale malt, some Munich 10 and then 7 ounces each of Belgian Special B and Thomas Fawcett & Sons Dark Crystal #1 (which is 80-93L) and then hopped with Centennial & Simcoe to about 35 IBUs, fermented with 1272. The color and clarity during the transfer were unreal. This particular brand of British crystal is dark but also has quite a bit of red in it which pairs nicely with the Special B for an Uber-red beer. Take your Cents, Simcoe and even some Cascade and go from there. 1272 is a high floccer so your red beer will be that much clearer too. Cheers.
