Yeah it was good i have only made the first recipe though. The second recipe is one that i was toying with but haven't got around to brewing and i think i might tweak it more still.

Bigben thanks for posting this recipe. I want to try at an Irish Death clone as it is one of my favorites. I'm going to use this as my base, however I think I might hold back on some of the hops because I think IBUs are a little lower in I.D. Also why add 1 pound of Cara pills? wouldn't it just get lost against all that pilsner? Other than that it looks tastey.

I'm not sure why the cara pils, it was part of the grain bill that iron horse brewery sent me. All the grains and hops are what the brewery actually uses to make Irish death. The amounts of each are subject to be determined by the brewer. I arranged them from greatest to least in the order that they sent me. And then tried to figure how the put it together. Good luck

I'm looking forward to trying this one. Iron Horse just started selling this in the Fred Meyer in Portland. It's the only place in Oregon you can get it so every time I drive to Portland I have to bring back a bomber or two.

I'm curious also. I tried this beer in Yakima WA and absolutely loved it. Very sad I can't get it up here in Canada.
