    Yeah, mine ended up tasting more like a cinnamon/vanilla ale. Good, but not Butterbeer. None of
    the butterscotch schnapps came through. Maybe I'll try butterscotch extract next time?

    Adding lactose, priming sugar, and more schnapps today, and bottling 'er up!!

    Just racked to secondary . . . the color is a gorgeous, rich deep orange and so far the aroma

    beans that I ha...

    Hegh - I appreciate the help, but you don't need to be so harsh. I'm a beginner brewer and this
    is my first recipe, so be kind.

    ScottyC - that's very helpful, thanks! I may edit my grain selection slightly. I think I want a
    little bit of a warm and toasty flavor, but I may have too much at this point. Maybe 2.5 lbs
    honey and 1...

    Glad I found this thread! This recipe is still in progress and I'm working out all the details,
    but how is this looking for my Butterbeer? What color do you think it will be? It's my first
    recipe, con...
