just completed a 5lb test run of brochet.
though a veteran of mead making since the late 90s this style was very difficult to get fermenting.
OG 1.122 FG 1.040.....
i threw a crap load of yeast and fermentables in there beside just the honey.
3.3 lbs of malt
1 gallon of cloudy cider
1/2 gallon of apple juice
2 lg cans of apple concentrate
4 oz beet sugar.
i bet your stout will be as thick as used motor oil.
mine was racked yesterday after a month of fermenting and then cold crashing. it coated the test vessel like cough syrup ....or used motor oil.
kegged it and will do a taste test tomorrow.
may have to do some balancing on the flavor. i tasted a very small amount from the test jar and it was very malty & bitterish.....
i hope you post your taste profile.
did you experience swarms of bees while rendering down?
i rendered this out side and had thousands of bees arrive on scene. about 50 died in the fumes and fell into the honey.
