Default First Braggot

Ok since my kid got me the Extreme Brewing book for fathers day. I decided to brew the Crandaddy Braggot with a few slight changes.

9lb 8oz 2 Row
8 oz 40L
2lbs dried cranberries
6lbs Clover honey. Nothing special just Costco bottle.

2oz Styrian Goldings 60 min. 1.9%aa

Notty yeast

Mike, I hope you keep us updated on how this is going. I've had Braggot on my list of things to do but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Ok I got it in the fermenter. I didnt puree the cranberries like I should have but oh well. 1.050 on the berries.

Ill add the 6lbs of honey once the notty is about finished with the beer.

Oh and I forgot the pectic enzyme. Not sure what thats going to do.

What was your final ABV?

just curious as I've only made one braggot myself, which was really just an Irish Red Ale recipe that I kicked up with a fair amount of honey (10% ABV I think was my final total).

I haven't tried a bottle in months but last sample was coming along nicely. Definitely a 'winter warmer' kind of beer.

It should be close to 9.9%. I cant remeber what the OG was. I brewed the been and let it ferment for 4 days before adding the honey. Somewhere around 1.099ish if my calculations are correct.
