Well, I originally planned to have this ready for St Pat's day but I was a little late...
But just tapped last night and fell in love! It's been a while since I brewed and Irish Red and this was exactly what I was looking for. Big head, nice malt flavor and beautiful deep red color. I have already shared this recipe this morning with other brewing friends.
Also, the "Winter Warmer" you suggest with the honey sounds great too. I'm going to get that going next month and see how it turns out this winter.
