Notes

fermenter could not accommodate all the wort when combined with cider so I took a hit on starting gravity. hit 1.081 og, aiming for 1.090+

added 1 lbs honey @ high Krausen, bringing to roughly 1.088.

fermented aggressivley then slowed considerably, fermenting for over a month.
As it has attenuated, the grainy harshness disappeared and the honey and cider became dominant. Still quite sweet; hoping to attenuate to 1.020.

1/27 after nearly 1.5 months in primary, attenuated to 1.020.

Deep orange, floral honey notes, slight tartness.
