This is my 3rd batch of Honey Brown and all my friends say it the best yet. Has a great flavor.
Brewed all-grain with dry yeast. Fermentation petered out half-way through but some yeast ghosts kicked it back up again. Things got interesting when I racked to secondary on top of another pound of honey and 14oz of PB2 (de-oiled roasted peanut powder). During 2 weeks of a very slow secondary fermentation, the flavor & aroma went exactly where I was hoping... It's like drinking a newcastle while simultaneously eating honey nut cheerios... so obviously it'll be dubbed "honey nut beerios".
Great kit. It took a while to mature but after a few weeks in bottle it smoothed out and while the style isnt necessarily what I like to drink, all my friends loved it. I would recommend it.
Good, smooth taste, but dimenished quickly after week 6 in bottle. Will try all grain next time. Have to say one of my favorite after 4 brew recipes.
Well I am going to be honest that now the weather is colder I do find myself drinking more of my Honey Brown. It took a while to mature to the point where I think its great but after about 8 weeks in the bottle it is pretty smooth and I have gotten a lot of compliments on it. I look forward to brewing it again next year.
