So I got some Red X and other grains in a bulk buy. Used it once already with some Maris Otter and thought it was great.

Next Recipe going to try this:
2.75kg Vienna
1.75kg Red X
0.5kg Wheat
13g Chinook 60 min boil
52g Falconers Flight Whirlpool
MJ42 Yeast
No Chill

21 L
OG 1.055
FG 1.013

Thoughts on this one?

Have you tried using it for 100% of your grain bill to 1.050? According to Best Malz that is the best way to get a nice red colour. Plenty of malt flavour (a bit too much for me) used like that too.

No haven done 100% yet. From what Ive read, think it will be a bit too malty for me.

Put this one down toady, the only other recipe Ive used it in was with Marris Otter, that one is going down a treat.
