- OG assumed based on SG of 5G wort (1.043) with addition of honey mixed with 0.5G boiled water (0.6G total @ 1.081) 2 days into fermentation - Ferment temp uncontrolled (range 64-67) - According to my calculations, yeast attenuation was ~80% instead of the expected 72-74% typical range for the WLP320 strain - bottle conditioned in slightly warmer area of house (range 69-73 deg)
Water Profile: filtered but untreated neighbors well water Estimated water profile (based on my well water sample next door) Ca 159 Mg 34 Na 33 SO4 267 Cl <10 S04:Cl: >25
(30 days post brew, 17 days post bottle) Very happy with how this turned out! Great compliments from friends too. I can't say that it is so exceptional I would never experiment with the recipe, but I will enjoy every last bottle of this batch :-)

Popped the top on the first 2 bottles on my birthday. Tasted great! Already pretty well carbonated. Hint of honey and sweetness without being overpowering. Slight honey aroma. Will likely get even better with some more time but I couldn't resist trying one.
