Going to brew this for a second time this weekend...I really liked the 1st batch, it's amazing how simple is often better.

I used a variation of this recipe for my second all-grain attempt.

I used Irish Ale yeast instead, and changed the times for adding the hops a bit since I was using pellets.

My hydrometer broke right before brewing, so I won't have the best notes. But I hope to return with some positive feedback on how the finished product tastes.

I'm trying to decide between this and EdWort's Stone IPA clone for this weekend. Either will be my 1st all grain.

I'm thinking about brewing this, two 3 gallon recipes in my two new glass carboys and using Wyeast 1056 and WL East Coast Ale.

Whatyda think?

Also, since we're using 2 Row, I'm increasing the boil time to 90

Just brewed this, and its tasty, but very red at all, just brown. Could have measured poorly and gotten more than 2 oz of roasted barley. Next time i'll use one oz.

I brewed this in August, and just finished off the keg.
It was nice and red and really great flavor.
I will be doing this one again.
Easy, and tasty.
