Honey Brown Lager
My latest experiment on lager variations, a honey brown lager, has turned out well. Last time I tried my hand at a coffee lager.
My Honey Brown Lager Recipe
Since I like to try new things I thought I would try another variation on the Coopers Lager kits that I currently have. This time I tried for a honey brown lager. I did this by adding 600ml of longan honey along with 500 grams of brown sugar to the wort.
Tasting The Honey Brown Lager
The honey isn’t that pronounced in this lager but it is noticeable. I used brown sugar that is local to Taiwan, since that is where I currently reside, and it is the more dominant of the the two fermentables. I had previously decided to never use it again to make beer but it was the only thing available to me. This time, I am not dissatisfied with it, but it still has a bit of a different aftertaste.
I would recommend trying this if you want a variation on a lager. In the future, I think I might try a honey coffee lager. However, I am getting a bit tired of lagers so I am leaning heavily towards brewing up an ale next, which is what I prefer.
