Based upon an award winning recipe by Erik Beer - I tweaked it a bit with my own hop and malt preferences.
Nice Irish Ale ready just in time for St. Patrick’s day. Trying something new today...I’m repitching yeast from the last batch I made, Clansman 80/-. I found some directions on how to repitch yeast from a previous batch and decided to try it out in the interest of saving $6 on a new vial of yeast. After only four hours, bubbles started forming. Overnight, it’s now happily bubbling away (February 5, 2006).
Racked to secondary (February 11, 2007). Racked to keg and set in the basement to condition (February 17, 2007).
Tapped on St. Patty’s day. Smooth and malty with a dry finish. This one is for the books...another house ale for the Humphrey Hop House arsenal (March 18, 2007).
After a month of cold conditioning, this one has really developed. Nice and clear - reddish amber. I’m going to bottle four 12ers up and send them in to the Sam Adams Long Shot contest. Hey, why not, right? It is, after all, called Long Shot (April 12, 2007).
Dagnabbit!! I got filling the third bottle when the keg ran out. This one will not be entered. Curses! (April 17, 2007).
