Oatmeal Stout

8 lbs. US 2 row
1 lbs. US Boosted (? end of name unreadable)
8 oz. Crystal 60
4 oz. Bulk Patent

1 hour:
1 oz. Fuggle (AA 4.8%)

15 mins:
0.5 oz. Hallertau (AA 3.8%)

5 mins:
0.5 oz. Hallertau (AA 3.8%)

Initial SG 1.042 (? not sure this number on this scrap of paper is from this brew...
Final S.G. 1.014

Beast of a full smoky flavour, but I like it.

An Irish Red?

Made an Irish Red in here somewhere, which I seem to have forgotten to blog. Not sure what-all went in it at this point, but it ended up with 2 oz. of Hallertau hops (AA 3.8%)

And when I went to tap the smoked porter from the previous batch I seem to have mixed the kegs up, because I'm fairly sure its the red we're drinking now. Which means the red didn't get much more than a couple of weeks aging in the keg, and the porter is getting extra.
