Description
Home Brew is not about Alcohol Content, but about flavor. Boosting the Buzz factor up is only a side benefit of home brewing . Here is nice colored beer, with a nice white head and full of flavor. It uses 6 lbs of fermentables , of which 50% is Honey. So instead of a malty finish, you get a slight honey finish. Dry not sweet. Low Alcohol, summer session beer. English Ale Dry Yeast floc's very well and does not get disturbed to easily once settled.
