Lovely bitter
Brewed Dec of 2014. LME with liquid yeast. After two weeks in primary there was very little bitter and lots of malt. After two weeks in secondary the bitter showed up in the back end. After a week carbing in BeerBox kegs there is a perfect blend of malty sweetness and bitter. This is what I think of when I want a Middle Earth brew. It turned out fabulous.

This turned out very good. Extremely smooth & drinkable. I recommend this to others looking for an easy drinking, smooth bitter.

I brewed the DME version with Munton's yeast. Kept it in primary for 2 weeks and it seems to have fermented out quite nicely in that time. Been in the bottle for only 2 weeks, so still a bit young, but so far I have to say it is excellent, nice taste, just the right amount of hop taste.

I bought this to make for Thanksgiving, and ended up waiting too long to make it. I brewed it 12 days before Thanksgiving and after NINE DAYS of active fermentation in my primary, I transferred to my secondary to cold crash it and serve for Thanksgiving. At a temperature of about 45 degrees, it was still making bubbles in my secondary when I kegged it. At first, it had a sweet taste to it and I knew I had not given it long enough. Now, a week later it is mellowing nicely, the sweetness has blended nicely into the beer, and I am really enjoying it. It has a medium body, a nice white head to it, very little aroma, and a real nice mouth feel. I hit the original gravity exactly (very rare) and my final reading put it at about 6.1%. Next time I would leave at least two weeks for the primary, and two weeks for the secondary, and I think I would add some stronger hops at the end of the boil.

I brewed 1/20/12, followed the directions - 1 week primary, 1 week secondary. Bottled and let sit for 3 weeks. Some bottles carbed better than others for me but I ended up fixing that after 3 weeks in bottle by setting next to a space heater and shaking/mixing them for 7 additional days. I found it to be an interesting flavor. I was shocked at how well it went over with some of the guests I had over at the end of that 4th week in the bottle. I didn't expect the people that are not used to homebrew to enjoy it as much as they did. My pints disappeared far faster than I had expected. So, apparently it's really good! I like it after the first few sips. For some reason I have to get used to it but then it's quite tasty. Starts with some of the honey sweetness and ends with a nice bitterness. I did change the recipe by adding the honey during the last 2 minutes because I really didn't want to boil the honey. Not sure how much that affected the final product. Thanks AHS!
