I bottled it today. Color was excellent and it also tasted great. I am including this recipe in a competition later this month. I will post how it places.

Well's it's been in bottle about 2 weeks. I am having glass of it, poured with about a 2 inch head. Great color, long head retention and lacing to follow it. Better than commercial IRA's ive had.

Well, I originally planned to have this ready for St Pat's day but I was a little late...

But just tapped last night and fell in love! It's been a while since I brewed and Irish Red and this was exactly what I was looking for. Big head, nice malt flavor and beautiful deep red color. I have already shared this recipe this morning with other brewing friends.

Also, the "Winter Warmer" you suggest with the honey sounds great too. I'm going to get that going next month and see how it turns out this winter.

Thanks Pumbaa!!!

I brewed this for our 4th Annual Crawfish Boil, and it was a huge hit! I highly recommend it!

I brewed this recipe with just one change. When I went to brew I found that I only had 6 # of Vienna Malt America on hand so ended up using that and 5 # of 2 row. It turned out great and I can not wait to brew this with all Vienna.

Thanks for the Recipe.

So why the 60 minute boil if you're only boiling the hops for 40 minutes?
