Anything spiked with ale is OK in my book. I notice that you list 6oz of ale in the top, but in the directions it is 4oz. is the other 2oz for the cook I hope

YW, guys! It's a great dish for St Patty's day, too!


GB, if you read very carefully in the rather small print (I tried to redo the size, but nothing worked - some tips, maybe?), when you mash the taters, you add the other 2 oz. I should think the cook deserves a whole 'nother bottle, not just a measly 2 oz! :-)
