This is a real easy way to make an outstanding brew. I never thought to
combine honey with a bitter until I tasted one that a buddy made. Where the
idea came from I don't know. If you don't drink bitters, that's OK. The
residual sweetness of the honey blends beautifully with the bitterness
resulting in a rich, amber ale the goes down real easy. I've made ales with
honey before and didn't like the aftertaste, but this one has none of that.
- 4 lb Brewmaker Victorian Bitter kit (1.8 kg)
- 2.2 lbs clover honey (1.0 kg)
- yeast as supplied in kit
Half of supplied yeast nutrient in primary, other half goes in secondary.
15 min. boil. I have only used this particular bitter kit but if it isn't available to you
then just try another brand and let me know what you think.
