    Butterscotch Braggot Bochet (Butterbeer)

    Newbie Braggot Recipe

    Let me preface this by saying I'm a total newbie at brewing beer and mead. I've had success with a few kits and now I want to try and create my own braggot recipe for a 1 gallon batch. The goal would be dry and strong ABV with subtle citrus flavors. I know you guys get a ton of these requests...
