This recipe was easy to brew and came out well. Next time I'd probably use less honey because it's a little sweeter than I'd like for an Irish Red. Definitely a good beer and I'll use this as a base for future experimentation.
It's a pleasant mix of hoppiness and sweetness, but a little too sweet when compared to a traditional Irish Red.

50 bottles. Forgot to taste before adding the priming sugar, so not sure of the full effect of the honey. Was a bit hoppier than a red, probably due to not straining the wort when pouring in to the fermenter.
