Taste Notes

Sweet, malty, with light citrus and honey flavor and aroma. Honey colored, medium bodied, and thick creamy head. Only enough hop bitterness to offset just enough on the sweetness. Easy drinking. The Bible reference to the promised land being the land of Milk and Honey inspired the name and the beer was crafted to match. This beer fits no base style with additives.

Notes

Honey and lactose + 1 qt water are pasteurized to 180 F and added to secondary keeping secondary volume at 5.25 gallons and eventual kegging of full 5 gallons. 30 days cold aging. Can substitute 1 lb dark munich malt for 1 lb of the Honey malt if to sweet for your taste. This recipe is for a 4.5 gallon boil. if increased, reduce bittering hops to compensate and target the 20 IBU.
