Help needed for getting close to a Howling Red Ale

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I have an MB Octoberfest can. I would love to make the Howling Red Ale but sadly can't get the rest of the ingredients from MB.

I also have the following ingredients with me and need expert advice on how to get closest to the Howling Red Ale.

Cascade Hops, 2 oz
Magnum Hops
Pale Malt
Pale DME
Some home toasted Amber Malt (toasted as per instructions to get 30L)
MB Yeast
Safale US-05

What would be your suggestion(s) to be able to come close to the Howling Red Ale?

2 LME would work as 1 can of golden wheat, and you provide 1/2 cup honey with the old recipe

Sam you can give it a try with the pale malt and 1/2oz of the cascade hops. Bring 4 cups water to a boil add the pale malt and hops boil for 15 min. Remove from stove add the mr beer octoberfest, add 1 gallon cold water to LBK. Then add wort and bring water level up to 2-1/2 gallon in LBK stir good and add 1/2 packet of us-o5 yeast. This will be a little lighter in color then howling red. Also keep the hops in the LBK tell ready to bottle

Hi Elko,

Your reply is a bit cryptic for me. I'm a noob with only 3 batches behind me and could do witha bit more detailed instructions.
Did you meani should use the dme first? I didn't understand what you meant by leaving in the hops until bottling? Do I put them in a bag to boil and then drop the bag also into the LBK?

To boil hops you need DME with the water, so he's having you use the DME, with the ops, for a 15 minute boil.

The hops stay in the wort, don't worry about it.

You can use a bag. You can not use a bag. Lots of discussion about it, and in short - it really doesn't matter.
