Week two of our Top 5 "How Do You Honey" Recipe contest submissions will wet your whistle!
Made popular at his, Crooked Rooster Brewery, Greg Sheppard has submitted and shared his recipe for the infamously delicious Barnyard Red Ale, made with World Honey Market's Orange Blossom honey.
Believe it or not, honey has a rich history of brewing. Most commonly thought of in meads, Sheppard decided to craft a beer with it that is light and flavorful.
As it is an all-natural substance, honey is best for brewing in its raw, unheated, and unprocessed state with all the vitamins, antiseptic qualities, and nutrients intact. (The crystal-clear honey you see in the supermarket has been heat-treated and filtered).
Pure, raw honey is best to make good beer. Honey beers don't take as long as most meads. Meads can take months to ferment out completely and should be aged at least a year. On the other hand, Honey beers take only a few weeks to ferment and age to perfection in a month or so.
