I've brewed this twice. First time was for my wedding in Sept., 2008, hence the name. I am on the last keg of this year's batch and it'll be bittersweet when that keg kicks! This has gotten high marks from those who've tried it. It's nice & malty and will be an annual March brew session. I'll post a picture later. Please note that this recipe is for eleven gallons.

Looks pretty marvelous, with a fairly simple mash & hop bill. How large was the starter?

3000ml in two 1500ml growlers. I let the smack pack swell so big, it looked like the Octomom.
