Benny's Red

Red IPA By Brian Stephens


Light, dry, and very easy to drink.  It's just bitter enough to be a Red IPA but incredibly crisp.

Brian runs a rabbit rescue and names most of his beers after the various rabbits that come in.  Benny (Bunjamin) was rescued from a hoarding situation with 152 other rabbits.  He's a sort of ginger looking dude which inspired a red ale/IPA!

Notes:  Mash @ 152F for 60 minutes.  At 72% efficiency this works out to be about 5.2% which is just about right for some light outdoor drinking. (1.053 OG / 1.013 FG). The Estimated IBU's are right around 32 and the SRM is around 13.
 
Also, equal parts sulfate and chloride.  75ppm each with a target mash pH of 5.3.
