Let me know what everyone thinks about this experiment.
1 Gallon Batch
3lbs Walmart Clover Honey
4 teabags of Earl Grey Tea
1 Teaspoon of Yeast Nutrient
1 pack of Montrachet Yeast
Hydrate yeast in dish of warm water.
Bring about a quart of water to boil place teabags in and step for five minutes. Take of heat and disolve honey in pot of tea. Place in primary with teaspoon of nutrient. Top off with remaining gallon of water. Check temperature of primary to see that it is just above room temperature. Pitch Yeast and airlock. Agitate as much as possible during the whole ordeal.
Once again I forget to take OG.
Work sheet in the sticky post says it should be around 1.085. So we will see what this finishes at. Might be a bit dry for me.
3 hours later got bubbles and airlock activity.
When I rack to the secondary I'm going to thoss in two vanilla beans and let that age to bring out the vanilla flavor. Might have to back sweeten a little to please the girlfriend. I heard brown sugar might help with the vanilla flavor. Is this an option or should I just use honey for sweetening.
I'm already pleased with my second batch. Yeah me!
