Color, Conversion, Character
Brewed a red lager with 60% Red X. Best red color I've ever had, good conversion, and great malt character in the final beer.
Just made a SMaSH with this malt and Weimea hops. This malt produces a deep brownish red wort and the fermented beer is just as pretty. It has a rich maltiness with an almost caramel like quality. Would I think this could be a great addition to any beer you want a more robust flavor on, I think would be great for an old ale or barleywine.
Makes Red Beer
Best Malz makes reliable products. Using 10# Red X and a pound of carapils/white wheat it converted well, produced a dry beer and did a nice job of getting the elusive 'red beer'. Recommend.
