I'm on my 3rd batch after a year of extract brewing. I enjoy the all-grain process a little more since I feel like I am actually making the beer; however, I haven't bottled any of the three yet (tomorrow maybe). It is pretty rewarding either way.

Cheers.

Agreed! I recently bottled my first all grain batch ( English Bitter ), and created a Blond Honey Ale using honey I purchased from a local farm. There is a certain smell all grain creates that makes it more rewarding... it is also pretty sweet how much creativity all grain creates for the brewer.

I made Schlenkerla's Quaffable Irish Red. I tasted it before I bottled (and drank one of the ones I forgot to prime) and it is effn delicious!!! I want to drink one everyday until ready... But I will have to find the strength to hold out!! You should definatly check out his thread, he has pictures and a VERY detailed profile if the beer. The pictures alone were enough to give me that final push into "what do I have to lose" mode!

Nothing like a great Irish Red. I think this style gets overlooked sometimes.

Can you post the recipe? I'm dying to make an AG Irish Red. Thanks.
