I used to drink a bit of this when I lived downtown in Chicago. My brother gave me clonebrews and I found this recipe. What do you guys think?

12oz 55L british crystal malt
2oz roasted barley
2oz peat smoked malt
Steep in 1/2 gal 150 deg water, sparge with 1/2 gal 150 deg water bring to 1.5 gal and start to boil

3.3 lb John Bull light malt syrup
1.75 lb M&F light dme
1/2 lb corn sugar
4 oz cane sugar
1oz east kent [email protected] aa

boil for 45 min

1 oz EKG's
1 tsp irish moss

boil 13 min

1/2 oz EKG's
1/2 oz fuggles

boil 2 min

use Wyeast 1728 Scottish ale yeast or Wyeast 1084 Irish ale yeast

Second part of the question becomes what would be a good follow up so I can reuse the yeast cake? Keep in mind I am just moving from kits to recipes.

As for your first question....nope! Tried it once....can't say I much cared for it. Recipe looks good, though!

Second question: If you go with the Irish ale yeast, then you can't go wrong with a stout, or really about any English style. The Irish yeast is pretty versatile. It's what I used in my Old Speckled Hen clone.
May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long
