Evil Twin Red Ale on Deck

On July 6, 2008, in Homebrewing, Recipes, by Mark Ranes

Evil Twin Red Ale LabelTomorrow I’ll be brewing a red ale, Evil Twin Red Ale.  This is an all late hopped ale, with all the hops added in the last 20 minutes of a ninety minute boil, so the hop flavor and aroma should be pretty intense.  This is Jamil Zainasheff’s Evil Twin Red ale.  I had to sub in eleven pounds of Golden Promise as I only had eleven pounds Marris Otter, but it should be pretty close to Jamil’s ale. This ale is based on AleSmith’s seasonal Evil Dead Red Ale.

I’ll be getting up early (at least for me:) to light the burners and get this brew off the ground early, as the temperatures are projected to be right at 100 over 104 degrees tomorrow here in the valley…
