Brewed 2/21/10 With a big group from DCHB.
Apple smoked malt was from Copper Fox Distillery (Wasmund's Whiskey). Didn't look like it took a very good crush.
No water adjustments.
Hops 1.25 oz of my homegrown, 2.25 oz of year old pellets.
Yeast was a cup of slurry from District ChopHouse, 20 generations.
Shook to aerate. Violent fermentation by 12 hours.
2/25/10 Added 1 lb of Bee George Honey (Wild Flower Honey from Takoma Park Maryland). Considering I bought it at the COOP in Takoma Park it seemed appropriate addition to a "local" beer. After adding the honey I gave the beer a gentle stir with my wine thief to ensure that it was mixed in.
3/13/10 Racked to secondary, should be bottling in 2-3 weeks.
5/06/10 Bottled with 2.25 oz of table sugar. Gravity down around 1.012. Sample tasted pretty good, not much smoke/honey character.
6/23/10 First tasting, good if a bit over-carbonated (I'll be more excited about drinking it next winter, summer is not the right season for this one).
