I have been in trouble since the moment I began sharing my wife’s Honey Blonde Ale, close to a year now! Really not hers but, I made it using some of the dark honey we harvested last year. She liked the honey so well that she took 6 pounds of the dark amber sweetness and hid it from the sales batches. I have been given very direct instructions for this batch……I am not allowed to give any of this beer away! I need to have my daughter Lisa share in some of the blame. She took a 6 pack to one of her trail races and addicted a couple of her friends. They were rewarded a couple of times.
This beer is an all grain brew, currently in the primary fermenter and probably ready to rack over to the secondary. The brew process, a 90 minute boil, went very smooth. The starting gravity came out dead on to the expected number. The sample pulled for the gravity test, tasted pretty damned awesome.
I will Bottle in another 7 days and should make my wife happy by mid August. Let me take that back, I always make her happy, she will be “happier” when this beer is ready and happiest if I don’t share any……she can make that choice!
Drink Local and Drink Responsibly,
PS: My son Joe sent a text message as I was writing this post from Ranger Creek Brewery and Distillery, San Antonio TX. Another one to add to my list.
Now that’s just plain old cruel! Share about how incredible this brew is, and then tell us we can’t have any! LOL! Enjoy…in August! 🙂
She is hoarding the beer……maybe I should have bottled a few and squirreled them away.!
Well, there you go: Pretty Damned Awesome is my favorite flavor. Sounds like a winner!
I has really been a hit. She has three 6 liter mini kegs to keep her happy…..and you know what they say about a happy wife!!!!!
