Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Base malt for a Chimay red clone
Would Marris Otter be an appropriate base malt for a Chimay red, or shoud it be Pils or 2-row pale?

Also, does anybody have a good proven recipe for the Chimay red or Blue that you wouldn't mind sharing?

Re: Base malt for a Chimay red clone
If you pick up "Brew Like A Monk", there is a recipe in there that gives all the malts for various Belgian Brews. I don't have it with me, but I think it was 2-row. on the Chimay Red.

Great book and totally worth the price, pick it up.

Re: Base malt for a Chimay red clone
BLAM calls for Pils, ccaramel malt, wheat starch and sugar. Interestingly it suggests that the Pils malt is grown in France and is 6 row for the higher enzyme content to convert the starch (monks claim wheat flour).

Maris Otter would probably be ok, but for the same cost I'd just go with a Belgian/French Pils
