I got the idea of tossing the dark grains in at sparging from Flossmoor Station's former brewmaster, Matt Van Wyk. He did this for their Black Wolf Schwarzbier. You get color, but not much flavor and I think it added to the 'redness' of the beer.
I brewed five gals. of this for the first time not long ago and it went pretty fast. Brought it to a gathering of regional homebrewers at a Brewers/Cubs game and it went over pretty well.
I brewed it again last month, but upped it to 10+ gals. Five of these gals. were for the 21st birthday of one of my stepson's buddies. He had a sip or three a couple of weeks after kegging and loved it. Had a full pint a few weeks later and offered to pay for the ingredients if I brew it for him as a B'day gift.
I named this for my Great-Grandfather. He was Irish and the first of his family to be born on US soil. Spent the majority of his life in Ausin, TX and died in 1971.
