This recipe turned out very well. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good Irish red recipe.

Started my Spring brewing yesterday, and this one's in the bullpen now. I had to go through a couple of Irish reds before I found one I liked, and this is it.

I've made it with Willamette @ 60 and EKG @ 15, mainly because I don't care for Fuggles. It's a good switch up.

Glad everyone's enjoying this. I'm thinking about doing up a batch at 1.045 with lager yeast for summer quaffing. I want to do a lager, and this sounds a lot more appealing than something resembling "used" beer.

Yeah, I've only done one batch, but that's all it took to convince me it's a keeper. It's in the bullpen now....just brewed a 2B Cane & Ebel clone. As soon as I can free up a fermenter, in this one goes.....

This puppy is mashing in tomorrow morning about 0800. When I did the first batch, my brewing software only predicted 3.9% ABV, so I brewed (5 gal.) with another pound of 2-row and another pound of Vienna. Since I don't really taste any difference between liquid and dry yeast (belgian and hefe yeast excepted), I fermented with a packet of S-05. As someone mentioned earlier with theirs, mine was also a bit more on the brown side. No matter, this is a great beer.

H'm. I just experienced this with WY1332 (the NW Ale yeast) on a Two Brothers Cane & Ebel clone. Pitched Monday, had nice, steady airlock action Tuesday - Friday, foamed out and plugged up the airlock on Saturday, found it with the bucket lid domed up. I didn't know bucket lids could do that.

At least you caught it in time. Most folks learn of their problem when NORAD calls them to inform them they are tracking their lid as a new piece of space junk.
