So this weekend, I'm finally brewing my big Irish red ale. It exceeds the style a bit on gravity, IBUs, and ABV... I've tried to keep the balance pretty much the same, just make it bigger than the typical red.
(If you care, stats are OG 1.064, FG 1.017, IBU 29.8, ABV 6.17%)
I always print up some cool custom labels, and will do the same thing here. I have not, however, come up with any cool names in the past. I'd like to call this one something besides "Big Irish Red Ale".
Are there any good ideas out there for a creativity-challenged guy?
