Also, I'm wonder what I may have to do different from my first brew. My first one is an IPA that I made from an already hopped can of malt. Any thoughts?
A red sounds good with St. Paddy's coming up--and we have a thread going on it right now that will hopefully get some good recipes posted in it.
A suggestion for you--next time just use unhopped LME/DME and steep some grains. You'll improve the quality of your beer BIGTIME.
If oyu have questions about that, ask around in the extract forum. LOTS of great info from these guys.
