Well so far so good. I got a great red color from the running's. Pitched the yeast without a starter. less than a half day out and it is fermenting like crazy with Safale s-04.

Just recently started using some of the dry yeast and it definitely does very well. Saves money from the typical Wyeast packs!

came home today and my whole apartment smelled like my irish red.. the s-04 is fermenting like crazy...my OG on this was 1.070 so who knows how this goes...its a 2.5 gallon batch

I did a step mash on this...mashed in with about 1.5 gallons of water for bout 20mins @135-140 then brought the temp up to 153 with another half gallon

the reddish color just amazes me!

Brewguy82,

What's your plan on time in the fermentor? Are you planning on putting it in a secondary or going to bottles/keg?
