I was not completely satisfied with my 1st brew so I completely changed it. The cake thing thru me off. So I have revamped it after studying irish red beer history and I hope this is closer to the red taste I was looking for. Brewing tomorrow so I will keep you updated.

    I'm looking for a good Irish Red. How did this rev compare to your 1st recipe? Did you get a better color and flavor? I notice you changed your Irish yeast from WLP004.

    Also, I think I'd like your change to Cascade as the bittering hop.

    The color is a little richer and flavor is definitely more towards a red. I think the Maris otter was a good change. The yeast I changed mostly due to the problem with my 1st brew with the floating cake. It was crazy because every one I talked to had never seen it.
