Sounds great. I just mentioned those couple yeast but I meant to say just any dry yeast.
Companies like Wyeast have liquid packs. For 1 gallon batches just make sure to follow
directions on the packag...

Give or take 2-4 points that amount of honey would give an ABV around 1.040 I bet. So close to
a potential 6% - 7% ABV. I highly suggest upping the nutrients to about 1.5tsp and use the

I think you're right there...I will use a new recipe using only honey burnt black (wondering if
this would create smokey flavours like a hint of stout?) and experiment with different honey

I have not used Jamaica tea before but have used a cold hardy hibiscus that grows like a weed
here in Oklahoma. (Rose of Sharon) It is similar in flavor but more subtle (I have read) but it
