so what did was used an ipa kit and added almost 3 lbs of honey. After 2 weeks in a bottle i tasted it and really good! Best part is its about 9.7 %.
I used safale 05 double pitch and 2 anise stars although not much anise taste.
Brews so far:
Lemon kolsch, mango english pale ale, lemon lime pale ale, vanilla brown ale, chai tea stout, apocalypse ale, jalapeno ale, summer sorachi ale.
