Looks good. Almost like an Irish Dubbel Red.

How does it taste?

Not sue yet. Bottled the first batch 1 week ago. Currently in the agonizing waiting part.

Yes. Pre-fermentation it was extremely sweet but had a good flavor. Post-fermentation it had a little sour taste and was pretty alcohol-ish. I'm hoping that will go away with time.

Unfortunately I think this batch got infected. I accidentally killed my yeast by throwing it in boiling water. Then it sat for 2 days, an open invitation for bacteria to come and play. The end result was 8.3% abv of sour, sour, sour liquid. Gonna try an easier brew next and try to master the method before trying this one again.

Anyone else have a good outcome on this? Why the need to two packets of yeast? I am making an Irish Red this weekend and am going to try and "wash" the Wyest Irish yeast I have and try another Irish beer (love Irish Red's). Wanted to know if I needed to grab another Irish Wyest packet.
