Looks the goods Ravs.
I'm thinking Heritage crystal would be nice.
That appears to be a high FG, perhaps need a fair bit of maltiness to balance it (but expect that is covered by the FG)?
I like the idea of hops at 2g/L at 10 and 5 mins!

I will have to give it a go.

Very happy with it Malted, the ultra simple grain bill is a nice bonus. Yep highish FG, but it works with the big hit of late and dry hopping.

Looks like a good, simple red, mate. Agreed, key is to hop big late in the boil, and whirlpool.

Next version with more hops, 2g/L at 10min, 5min, 1min and dry hop.

Needs a little more carbonation in the keg.
