Well, I couldn't resist. I kegged it Sunday night and took a sample last night. Grain to glass in 20 days and it was amazingly smooth and delicious. The beer still needs a couple of more days to fully carb up but it was good enough to enjoy. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Brewed this back in January, it's been working its way through my pipeline, including a 2-week lagering period. Finally tapped it tonight, it's frickin' amazing! The colour is perfect, the flavour is awesome. Just a hint of the roasted malt, perfectly balanced, it's amazing. Thanks for the recipe, I'll definitely be brewing this one again.

Perfect. Just perfect. Brewed this late December, and am just now cracking open bottles for st paddys day weekend. Amazingly smooth, the roasty flavors work spectacularly well in this recipe!

Back in November, I brewed the Donovan's Irish Sunset Irish Red Ale, and it made the top 10 in a local homebrewing competition. In January, I brewed this recipe, and in my opinion, this recipe is much closer to the style. This is a great recipe, and I will definitely be brewing it again. I'm so happy I have this on tap for St. Paddy's Day weekend.

Thanks for the recipe! It's pouring from the kegerator now, and it's delicious! Darkest Irish Red that I've ever brewed...but tastes very, very good.

Are you brewing this with a light, medium or full body profile?

Per recipe, mash at 152F. Medium, correct?

I checked BJCP guidelines. Should be a light to medium body. Mashing at 150 here.

Not sure what I did incorrect, but just changed this from and Irish Red to a Brown Ale. Should still be tasty.
