I am planning to make a small braggot using buckwheat honey in a few weeks. I read through this
thread which helped tweak my recipe a bit. I did not want to hijack either of them so figure I would make a new thread on this.
The basic recipe looks like this:
Batch Size:4.5 gallons
1lbs Specialty malt (honey malt/crystal malt, unsure how much)
3lbs Buckwheat honey @ 10 minutes
1 oz Noble Hops (East Kent or Tettnang) @ 30 min
Mash @ 155
Because this is most likely going to finish out very dry I was thinking using a portion of Honey Malt would be a good idea, but was worried too much may make it cloying.
Currently I thinking 1/2 lbs honey malt and 1/2 lbs crystal 120L. Is that going to be too much in a braggot or do you think it will be dry enough to balance it out?
