Hey brother, I just brewed this last week. I used your exact recipe minus some of the honey. I only put in 1 LB because my wife doesn't like the alcohol content. Anyway, my question is if you tasted the beer between your primary and secondary fermenter, and how did it taste? I racked mine to secondary today and it didn't taste too great. Also, how did you get all of the yeast out? It's got low flocculation and usually requires filtration. Appreciate it.

Brewing this one up today. I've stayed true to the recipe except I changed to white labs irish ale yeast, I'm using two pounds of light brown sugar instead of honey, and I'm adding an ounce of hops at 30 minutes because I like my reds to have a little more aroma. (I know it's not the style) If you check out the weather in tennessee right now then you'll see that this ale is the perfect choice for todays weather! Happy brewing everybody!
