I average about 72%. If you hit the OG, sounds like you did fine. Hope you enjoy!!

Had a gravity reading/taster after 13 days just now, I think the honey is more noticeable than it should be but not totally overpowering. Didn't have much of a nose (probably due to 75min hop boil) but I can tell this is going to be a nice drinking-in-the-sun backyard beer. Will probably report back after 3 weeks conditioning.

so I used too much honey and it's a bit sickening. Will this condition out (currently at 3 weeks) or do I write this batch off?

Sickening? Typically most of it will ferment out, is it sweet or just too much "honey" flavor. How much did u use.

This recipe tasted FANTASTIC coming out of my bottling bucket. Can't wait for it to carb. Very clear when bottling.

I left out the wheat flour and added more honey, did a 4 gallon batch with 12oz of honey.

Other than that, what a simple recipe. SWMBO was very impressed at her taste out of the bucket too.

Will come back with pics after carb.

Thanks for such an easy recipe.

Any word on this. Wanting to do a high honey batch myself. Thinking 1lb for 5 gallon batch and no wheat flower, but keep everything else the same. Wanted to know how yours came out.

I just did a honey hef with 1# wildflower honey (not a mod of this recipe). It came out mega-sweet, but as with anything YMMV. I'm okay with a bit of sweetness, my wife loves it.

Fermented for 16 days, was still bubbling.. I could probably leave it for a couple more days next time.
