the wort smelled good and the color looked deep red.
it is well aerated and i pitched the yeast with some "yeast energizer" powdered stuff my lhbs had sitting on the shelf.
GO YEAST, GO!!!
I bet you still end up with a hell of a beer.

Sounds like most let this ferment about 4 weeks...do you rack to secondary, or just leave in primary and then to keg at 4 weeks? Not sure if that would affect color/clarity?

I Do 4 weeks primary then straight to keg or bottle with no secondary. It's nice and clear by then.

I put together a partial mash a few days ago, and it's fermenting along quite well.

Used this recipe from earlier in the thread. I ran out of honey, and skimped a little on the water. At the end, I had an OG of ~1.06

Mashed in a few minutes ago on a 15 gallon batch of this for St. Patricks Day! LHBS didn't have Cascade () so I'm using Centennial for my 30 minute addition.
