Batch 24 - Shillelagh Whack Irish Red

Got an Irish Red brewed last weekend with a little help from some friends....

Also thanks, Dave, for the new burner that results in substantially less black dust to clean from the bottom of the brew kettle after the boil. Yay for laziness in cleaning!

yay for laziness in cleaning (or anywhere else I can find it)!

I'm pretty sure that wasn't 70% efficiency... (yes I know that's from the software, but I don't think you got there)
