Use it in small quantities for a 'SF Red Hell' lager with SF Lager yeast. Provides a nice maltiness and reddish tone.

Will not produce red beer
I used at the max (20%) and the beer does not have even a trace of red in it. Flavor is good though and the beer scored 35.5 in competition.

Response from MoreFlavor
Thank you for your review and congrats on your good score at the comp. This malt definitely is a little light in color to create the richer red colors you were probably hoping for. This creates more of that classic german amber color we see in your photo. For red beers we like to use a tiny dash of black malt (around 2oz per 5 gallons depending on crush) or some of the medium caramel or biscuit malts around 50-70L. Cheers!

American Red Ale
I will not brew my American Red Ale without this malt. Makes up 8% of my grain bill along with 2 row, golden promise, victory and melanoidin. Excellent red color, strong malty flavor and aroma, and a smoother lingering head and finish

CaraPils/Caramel Double Whammy
I had a recipe that called for carapils and caramel. I reduced those values (using beer smith) and added some carared and loved the results. Good smooth body, foamy head, and spot on color.

Perfect in Red Ales
I use about 5% of CaraRed in my American Red ales. It adds I nice malty balance and red hue.
