After two weeks in the bottle, the carbonation had reached an acceptable
level, but the taste was a little green. After another month the taste
has mellowed out. This beer is turning into a favorite of my friends who
don't appreciate my usual heavy ales. I enjoy it because it has more
taste and body than BudMillCors!
- 1 can, M&F light malt extract (unhopped)
- 3 pounds, clover honey
- 2 ounces, Williamette hops (5.0 AAU's)
- Wyeast London liquid ale yeast
- 1/3 cup, clover honey (priming)
The malt extract, honey, and 1 oz. of the hops were boiled in 3 gallons
of water for 1 hour; the remainder of the hops were then added and
steeped for 15 minutes. The wort was passed through a strainer into a
plastic primary and diluted to 5 gallons. After reaching room
temperature, the yeast was added. The intial SG was equal to 1.040.
After 6 days in the primary (60-65 F) and 10 days in a glass secondary
fermentor (60-65 F) the final SG was equal to 1.000 (Ed: ???, 1.010??).
The beer was then primed with honey and bottled.
