I am bored.... all I have is time to plan and scheme brewing ideas while I'm deployed overseas and my carboys collect dust. Here is my latest brainstorm, probably not original but here it goes....
Chocolate Peppermint Metheglin
12-14# Clover honey
2-4 OZ peppermint extract
8-10 oz unsweetened cocoa powder
Chocolate Peppermint Malteglin
never done a Braggot before, but something similar to the previous recipe, but more honey to balance the malt. I would want it to be nice and dark, plenty of specialty malt. I don't know if I would use cocoa powder and chocolate malt.
Eventually tweak the recipe to a cold version of hot chocolate with a splash of peppermint schnapps.
