Followed the recipe other than the celery as I couldn't get a hold of any. I used carrots instead. As lovely as the pie was, it tasted more like Bolognese than an ale pie. Like I said, still tasted good but a bit disappointing. Might try beef stock cubes next time. Also serves way more than 4 people!
