3# 2 Row (2.0 SRM)
1# Carafa I (337.0 SRM)
1oz Vanguard dry hopping 21 days

16# Honey, probably a sweet clover/basswood honey added over 20 days in 4# increments starting on day 4
Lalvin EC-1118

est OG 1.163
target FG 1.010-1.025
est alcohol 18.35%-20.34%

bitterness 38.0

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.
