Well that few weeks turned into years but I can say this is the favorite recipe of most of my friends.

This beer is like a maltier New Castle with less bitterness. It has a nice creamy brown head and is very heavy. I have tweeked it a few times and its gotten better most of the time. I'll repost at some point when I am done messing with it.
