Honey Winter Wheat

Recipe added: 01/09/98
This is one of my favorites so far and has gotten good reviews from all that have tried it. Calculates to about 18 IBU, a little high for Wheat beer but not overly. Alchohol content is right at 5%. More honey would bump the % some and not hurt the overall beer
