Just brewed up something very similar to this recipe, trying to use up a bunch of ingredients I had laying around. I added dried clover in addition to chamomile, but the clover aroma got buried underneath the chamomile and hops. Next time I'm going to skip the aroma hop addition and maybe back off the bittering Cascades.

7# Pale 2-Row
4# Wheat
2# Clover honey @ flameout

3/4 oz Cluster @ 60m
4/5 oz Cascade @ 60m
1/2 oz Cascade @ 5m
1/4 oz Mt. Hood @ 5m

1/2 oz dry German chamomile @ 5m
1/2 oz dry red clover @ 5m

Wyeast 2565 (Kolsch)

OG: 1.061
IBUs (per Brewtarget): 31

Hey - just started this tonight for the heck of it. Followed the recipe from the "Extreme Brewing" book, but I actually used 1.25 lbs of honey instead...

... which brings me to a strange thing: my OG is 1.045? I thought with the extra honey it'd be higher?

All grain or extract?
Also different honeys have different amounts of sugars. There's some amount of variance there.

Wheat extract. It sure is bubblin' pretty good today. Doesn't have that same beer smell as my first two batches of pale ale, though. I'm always so nervous!

I guess worst case scenario is that it is a very light beer?

I'm sure it will turn out great. Lower og shouldn't matter.

Good luck! Can't imagine how you missed your OG with extract and honey. Don't worry about it though. It'll be great.

Well hopefully it turns out okay. I took a whiff through the airlock today, and it smells much better (more "beer" smell!)... I'm intrigued on the chamomile flavour... I sure hope it works!

Just bottled the recipe last night - final gravity was 1.01. So who knows...

Just opened my first couple of bottles of this - taste is great, didn't carbonate quite as much as I would have liked, though... so it's a tad bit flat.
