I have made this beer twice with great results. Making it again this weekend. I did vary the recipe a bit by using 9.9 pounds of malt. Pulled the alcohol content to about 8.2. It was delicious and all my friends enjoyed it.

My very first home brew. Got it through a local home brew store. I was looking for a smooth ale, as I prefer lagers, but I'm not trying that process at this point. The recipe calls for 9 lbs extract, but the store made it 6 lbs. It came out weaker abv, as expected, but good flavor. I'm trying this one again soon, but with the full recipe.
