No problem. It's actually the Crandaddy Braggot Recipe from extreme brewing.

- 3gal boil top up to 5gal
- 6 lbs LME
- 6 lbs Orange Blossom
- 1oz Hallertau (60min)
- 2lbs dried cranberries (Craisins)
- pectic enzyme
- yeast nutrient
- Champagne Yeast

Hydrated the cranberries in boiling water then i put them in a food processor and puree them
add them with 5 mins left in the boil.

The recipe said that this will be done in a month but let me tell you that was wayyyyyy off. I made this at the beginning of last September when I was still fairly new to brewing thinking that it would be done by Thanksgiving. Being a little over 7 months old now it is really tasting awesome.

Thank you. Did you add the honey to the boil, or afterwards?

I added the honey at the end of the boil. I always heard that when you boil honey you lose a lot of the flavor & the aroma so that's why I did it that way.

Is that just honey, nutrient, water and yeast? How does it taste?
