Thanks for the helpful info, much appreciated! I'll hold off on adding extra hops, at least for this batch, as my understanding is Imperial Red Ale is quite hoppy to begin with. so we'll see how it goes, and thanks again!
Hey, guys, I'm looking for a recipe for the Autumn seasonal Imperial Red Ale (it doesn't exist on the Mr. Beer site). Is it the same as a standard Mr. Beer recipe, only substituting the Safale s-04 packet for the regular packet of yeast? And would this brew benefit by the inclusion of an extra hops packet? Or is that simply a matter of personal choice? I'm kinda new to this brewing stuff and very curious!
