Roger's Red Mild Ale - Brew Day

I have been brewing a lot of big beers back to back.  I like big beers: barley wines, dubbels, triples, imperials.  However, I realized as I kegged the last big beer, that I really was thirsty for a nice session beer.  I am still carbonating the CYBI Bam Biere, and needed another beer in the lineup.  So I consulted Mild Ale: History, Brewing, Techniques, Recipes (Classic Beer Style Series, 15) by Dave Sutula, and came up with this recipe, which I named for my Grandfather.  I  brewed it on March 6, instead of February 28, because I was bottling whiskey for First Brother of Satan on the 28th.
