Christmas Braggot

Nothing like a rich, warming braggot at Christmas. Using local honey, some leftover hibiscus syrup from a jar of flowers and some frozen fruit that Morrison's sent me for free for a gallon of purple Christmas ale :)

It's a viking style beer, part mead and part ale. This is an interpretation obviously but I think the clean yeast will let the ingredients cut through.

Well this beer is off to a hilariously rocky start as the original base got infected so I've used a gallon of best bitter instead. Added honey and hibiscus, going to swap the fruit for a teaspoon of gin botanicals instead. So basically, it's a totally different recipe.
Theoretical OG/ABV 1.084, 9.7%

Better luck next time. Always shite when you gotta dump a brew.

Mine is in two demijohns aging away. Will bottle it around November.

Going well this time. I added the hibiscus first in case of preservatives, then a small teaspoon of gin botanicals and 450g of locally made honey. Nice strong ferment after the honey was added which has now subsided, still regular airlock activity but this is a "brew it and forget it" beer anyway.
The airlock smells remarkebly bubblegummy and ginny, probably a combination of esters and botanicals.

The krauzen has dropped after a month on the honey, I'll let it clear in the cold store at work and bottle it after that. Smells fantastic

Rob,

Did you end up using just 450g of honey and yet leave it in your FV for a month?

I fermented the initial beer (reasonably simple bitter) and racked a gallon onto 450g honey with some us-05 yeast as it didn't take off for a few days. Honey is a notoriously slow fermenter so yep, took a month!

Hmm... that might explain why my braggot exploded in the bottle. I left it fermenting for no more than two weeks. Do you reckon my honey beer with only 480g in 23L might need 3-4 weeks?

If you added it in primary/boil it'll probably ferment quicker. With any strong beer I would avoid priming whatsoever unless you've definitely stripped it dry with wine yeast or similar, or a really highly attenuating yeast. It's worth bulk ageing for a while for certain

Mine is in cold storage in the cellar at around 15C - ain’t dropped bright yet, so leaving it till November and check again.
