I tried reproducing Pete's Wicked Red
according to the label.
Even the Michelob Light drinkers in my house liked it.
This was surprising because it came out way darker than the red beer I was
trying to recreate.
- 1/2 lb Roasted Barley
- 1/2 lb Munich
- 1/2 lb Caramel???
- one can of John Bull amber
- one can of M&F amber
- 1 oz EKG fresh hops..bittering..@ 60 min to go
- 1 oz " " " .. " @ 30 min to go
- 1 oz Tettnanger hops.aroma @ 10 Min to go
- ale yeast
I steeped the grains til the boil and then removed. I added the
cans of malt extract and boiled for about 60 min...adding the hops as shown
above. I forget the OG and FG (I know the people on here love those
figures) but it came out a little over 5% alcohol. After it was done
fermenting I put it in the beer ball and primed with a little over a half a
cup of corn sugar. I threw out the first cup full of yeasty beer but the
rest was awesome.
