If you boil Honey it loses most if not all of its flavour. I would try adding it after the boil and steep for 20 min or so if it were me, either that or rack onto it for a secondary.... I've not used maple syrup though.

I wasn't talking about boiling the syrup. Add it when you bottle the beer instead of using priming sugar. Maybe a mixture of both, because I know honey does not produce the amount of carbonation like priming sugar does.

Today I'm brewing my Raspberry Wheat. That'll make 40 gallons brewed this week. I suppose that's not much compared to the 31 gallons/batch I'll be doing soon. Clean up will NOT be fun on the new equipment.

WHAT A READ!! Stoked.

A quick question though: why no IPA or IBA or IRA?

I've brewed an EPA once but there are a gazillion IPA's out there and I'm not a big hop head so I brew different recipes and let the others battle for IPA stardom.

Way to stand up to the stigma that every craft brewery has to have a IPA. The measure of a brewery is not ibu 's

Stigma? I figured that every brewery has a flagship "ale", hefe and porter or stout...I am from Oregon. Maybe its just what i am used to? Plus a stigma implies a negative connotation... I think IPA or ales in general are all positive. Just what my tastes are I guess... Ales are what got me started brewing.

It's good we aren't all the same

I guess I am a bit bitter, I get people in my pub about once a week saying we aren't a real micro-brewery because we don't have an IPA, yet nobody drinks my pale ale. But I am in a unique market.
