Just tapped this last night. It's Amazing! It was perfect after a day of renovating the basement and then having some grilled steaks for dinner. I definitely got a strong aroma of honey and chamomile and they were both present in the taste, but neither one was overpowering. I think my one problem is that I only made 2.5 gallons and the neighbors discovered it, so I don't see this lasting even a week. It's a great beer to drink on a warm night, or day. I'm planning on brewing a bigger batch this week and will probably try to keep it on tap throughout the summer. Thanks for posting it!

Made this about two months ago, thanks for sharing this recipe. I love this beer, tastes great and its great for non beer drinkers to try. A very nice honey and chamomile taste that shines through. I will be making it again hopefully shortly.

Once again thanks for this

I have chamomile growing in my back yard. Going to pick it and dry it out in a brown paper bag. Adding to the list of beers to make.

I made the extract version of this recipe a few months back... Wow! So delicious. I did a few slight modifications, however, and I was really happy with how they turned out.

If you're looking for a more pronounced chamomile smell and taste, try this out- Using a hop bag, I made a tea of 2 oz of chamomile flowers, poured in 2 quarts boiling water, and let it steep for around 15 or 20 minutes during the end of the boil. I added this in while cooling my wort.

In the same recipe, I also dryhopped an ounce of chamomile flowers for 2 weeks. After the dry hopping and letting a few weeks to carb, it was outstanding. The chamomile develops what I can only describe as a cross between a green apple and flower like aroma, and in some regards taste. Not overpowering by any means, but be prepared for it to be the dominant note.

Anyway, worth a shot for anyone who really wants to go off the charts on the chamomile!

Do you remember what your ABV was?

When I throw this in BeerSmith, it is showing about 6.7 ABV.

Is that about right?

6.7% is exactly what I have in Beersmith from my original brewday. I don't remember it being that high, and I don't think I'd brew it to that gravity now.

I still have have a couple of bottles left. I should try one to jog the old memory.

If by some chance you are nearby, come get one.
