maybe not for a lawnmower beer. My kolsch was about 6.5% and I drank myself stupid on it one afternoon. Since then I've been weary of high alc % hybrid beers

OT From the Centennial Blonde; I brewed a Honey Ale and it's been in the bottle for 4 weeks now. Still a very sweet honey taste. Hoping it fades with age.

I brewed a big version of this. I used 16# of the pale 2 row and added in the various other grains. It's in the secondary right now, should finish around 8.5-9.5% when all is said and done. I also brewed the normal version of this earlier in the year and it was probably the best beer I've brewed to date.

Might want to figure out what your doing wrong to be topping off batches that often.

I just bottled my batch made about a month ago. I used 3724 this time around. It was VERY slow. I finally got tired of waiting and pitched some champagne yeast into it. It ended up only getting down to 1.015. Its mighty tasty right now.

May not be doing anything wrong - some folks (like me) do partial boils. I use store-bought gallons though.

Did 10 gal of the extract version this time and split it, 5 gal with Notty and 5 with Saflager23. (1st 5 gal batch went too fast).
I also added 1/2 lb of Honey malt, (because I had it around), and 8oz of rice syrup solids in place of 1lb of the DME as I only had 9lb.

Lesson learned for me: Getting 12 gal of wort to boil on my turkey fryer burner is just not happening , (time to get a new burner). I was only able to get it to about 210f and that took a lot longer then the 60min boil time, good thing I did late additions of the DME.
Hydro came in at 1.041 and was a bit bitter but I think I'm good as that should mellow out as it ages.

Since this is up to 3374 posts I could not read them all; Anyone use Saflager23 on this? I have seen some good and bad posts on that yeast and was just wondering what to expect.

I'm in. 2.5 gallon batch is chilling now. I used Crystal 20, and Victory instead of Vienna. It's what I had on hand.

I bottled one week ago and I tasted one last night. They were carbed and clear but the taste was a little 'green' to me. Sort of tangy and cidery. I followed the OP recipe exactly with the exception of some extra hops at FO and slightly higer ABV (5.25%). It's not hoppy or bitter, just green, so I'm assuming it needs a little more time to condition in the bottle.
