Lefty's Smoked Porter
Lefty's Maple Ale
's how I found out I don't care for smoke or maple flavor. Personal preference. But a heck of a buzz from 8 ABV bombers.

BrewinHooligan, lemme know if you get that red color worked out. I'm looking for methods to get red without bitterness.

Thanks!
My OG was 1.106. 100% Citra, 1.5 lbs total (1 oz 60, 2 oz 30 pellets, 1 lb of wet hops split between 20, 10, 5 and flameout, and 5 oz pellets dry hops). And I used Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale fermented around 62. Wet hops are quite faded at this point, but still some left. Definitely sweet and full, but also a pretty strong bitterness, so I think it's pretty balanced.

Right on. Thank you. Good call on the 1728... I hadn't even considered that.

I think I'm gonna go with all Galaxy hops on mine and call it Red Shift...

Yep, had some last week. Spectacular. There was a haul that didn't go to Chicago, so Surly released it to JJ Taylor. There's been kegs here and there and Four Firkins and a couple other places had bottles a couple weeks ago. Nice li'l surprise.

Got this li'l beauty from Nuke. Excellent IIPA.

Just pitched the yeast in my Agave Wine. Now for the waiting.
In the meantime my Chocolate Orange Peel Stout.

Good old fashioned pale ale, lightly hopped with Cascade. Simple and delicious.

I've used 4 oz. of carafa II to some good success in an Irish red I've done a couple time. I think I learned that from Mr. Conn.
