Best Malz Red X

Interesting

.

Yes interesting. My only question is a general one, WTF is it about red beers than seem to fascinate so many people? “Is my beer infected?” still has to be #1 but “How do I make a red beer?” must be in the top five.

Try Ken’s red lager (I’ve made it as an ale or as a lager) and you will see the reason for the fascination!

I agree red is a very interesting color in the beer world. A red Pils ? or a blood red IPA ? Even just a little tint in a brown or amber beer.

Sorry to bump an old thread up but I’m planning on making a red lager after Christmas and this malt came upon my radar. Unfortunately
http://countrymaltgroup.com/bestmaltz.asp
doesn’t list it available for purchase yet. :expressionless:

Ken, I may end up trying your recipe. :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s the same with black IPA. While I love the style, I disagree with trying to make it black without having any roast character. Or this new pale stout fad that’s going around. It’s just disgusting tasting.

Amen, brother. I’ve never understood why anybody would want to waste money on some expensive malt-derived coloring product like the one from Weyermann Maltsters just to make a beer black without having any roast flavor at all. This is not Bavaria, for crying out loud. If you just want a beer to be black without it tasting roasted (for whatever obscure reason I cannot comprehend), you might as well just use black food coloring! Who the hell cares how it gets it’s color? As far as the pale stout thing, I only just heard about that within the last couple of weeks or so, and I’ve never seen a commercial example of one anywhere. I’d be a whole lot more interested in seeing how that trick is pulled off than I am in some lame pseudo-stout.
