Taste Notes

A bit of a sweet after-taste, but nice. A real favorite with the ladies!

Notes

Even though this is an extract recipe I started with a full 6 1/2 gallons of water and let it boil off. Add the honey the last 15 minutes of boil; as you can see it really kicked up the ABV. I prefer a bit more hop flavor, but this is one of my wife's favorites just as it is . . . SO if you like more hops, add to taste (Think I'll go with a full ounce of Willamette (5.5%) for my boiling hops next time).
