Notes:
We've brewed this a number of times, and this is our "House Ale" so far. It's tried and true, and just about everyone I know (BMC crowd) at least enjoys it. It was intended as a Smithwick's clone, but turned out to taste nothing like Smithwicks - but sooo much better.

Hey Jezter,

Gonna crack open the first one tonight! Been almost 2 weeks in the bottle, at a cool 55 degrees! Will update with my modified recipe and tasting notes in the following weeks as it develops!

Thanks for the base recipe!

I made this the other day to get ready for St. Patrick's day. The only variation I made was I used a pound of carapils because I forgot to have the LHBS separate the MO and that (already had the patent).

It smells great however and like literally within 2 hours had started fermenting. After just a day it was rocking!

I changed this beer only slightly, due to my lower efficiency, and used a few more hops, about 22 IBU's. Falls within all parameter for Irish Red Ale Classification. Brewed 12/30/08. Came out very close to gravities stated in original recipe, the measured gravities were: OG 1.048 FG 1.014

This beer has developed nicely - I seem to like it more with every bottle I try. It has a dark red almost brown color. Very smooth flavor, malty, creamy with just enough hop backbone. Easy drinking. No heavy or sharp flavors to be found. Actually lighter in flavor than I expected. Somewhat comparable to Smithwicks in color and body.

Don't ruin your palette with a heavily hopped beer before this one! I made the mistake of grabing one of these Irish Ales after drinking the last IPA in a case I was drinking. The subtle flavors here are best enjoyed with a clean palette.

Should please even a slightly adventurous BMC lover, who isn't scared by its darker color (which belies its smoothness and lighter body) A great choice for St. Patty's Day!

I would really like to try this one on nitrogen. I expect it would be excellent. (Ahhhh.....another brewery gadget for the wish list.... )

Overall, a good recipe! Thanks, Jezter6!

Awesome! This has been our most brewed recipe around the house, and the one we use to brew with others so they can enjoy our favorite brew.

If you get a chance for a pic, I'd love to see one. I don't have any in process right now (but I need to do so very soon) so I can't post a pic of my own.
