I popped my cherry and made my first Brewers Best Red Ale Kit (my wife purchased it for me), I decided to tweak it a little by added a little honey to the secondary. This mellowed the hoppy bitterness, and gave it a hint of sweetness that I enjoy. I am very happy with the out come!
I've been making Wine, hard Cider, mead and Melomels, but I can see how you can get addicted to making beer!
I hope to be able to brew from a recipe soon!!
