.Noble hopback. I will find the most suitable local juice, fresh honey, and good hops, I'm a
veteran brewer, but only versed in beer. I'm just curious as to some of your thoughts on what I
might be ab...

I think with a pound of molasses, especially in three gallons, you're going to blow away any
subtleties you had from the hops or your hand-malted grains. Molasses has a very strong flavor,

@Ultima: Quite interesting, but it's probably not peanut-butter/chocolatey enough for my
tastes. Nothing like brewing with PB and chocolate for a big-time dessert beer. Your recipe
does sound tasty, t...

I wouldn't call it completely random, as I've seen this happen on nearly every block of smoked
cheddar that's been left sealed for a while. I've never heard of brett being used in cheese

I'm really interested in harvesting some wild yeast and brewing with it, and it's not fruit
season yet up here. I've noticed some white spots on the outside of a chunk of smoked cheddar
and was thinki...

You only mentioned adding more hops, which will not increase ABV. ABV comes from fermentables
and attenuation. If you ended up making a beer significantly larger than the recipe called for,
