This receipe turned out very well. It was the only one out of four that I KNEW was going into compitition before I brewed it. It turned out a little darker than I planned, it boarderd a porter as far as I'm concerened. The judges at the Big Fresno Fair gave it second place. This would be a great receipe for someone who is just learning to brew. Dark enough to impress your friends, but light enough to be liked by the masses.
