The Guinness does give the corned beef such a unique, wonderfully different taste than the standard, old recipe! I had to use almost two cans of beer to entirely cover, and keep the meat submerged. Also, I went with the suggestions about going ahead and adding the included spice pack that comes with the beef. One warning, do not try to add the veggies too soon to the cooking. Last year I added them in for longer than an hour (maybe closer to 2 or 3) and wow did they turn bitter! The potatoes were salvageable, but the carrots and onions - yuck! But don't skip putting the veggies in, they would have been awesome if I wasn't trying to cook them way too long in beer!!!
Enjoy this one, my entire family sure did!!!
