    Any Diabetic homebrewers out there ?

    Thought I would check back in here. I have since seen my Dr. and he confirmed I am now considered Type 2 Diabetic.

    yeast smells sour- Bad ?

    I have some WL 320 America Hefe Ale yeast in a starter right now. it smells sour. Haven't used this yeast strain before. I'm used to Belgians and I'm well aware of its smell. Does it sound like it may be a bad batch ?

    American Pale Ale Toecutters honey pale ale

    The honey flavor comes from the Honey malt yes. It complements the crystal, and combined with the Vienna gives this beer a rich flavor. I am kegging 10 gallons this week that is dry hopping with Citra right now.

    Yes. It will just be a little lighter in color but the flavor will be pretty much the same.
