Sweetness and Light Honey Ale

This was a light honey ale I brewed up in a small five litre batch. I got a big tub of honey from a farmer in Wexford who keeps bees. A batch of mead was made with some of the honey. This ale was made with some of the rest. I wasn't happy with the yeast as it didn't settle out well. A combination of bottling too early and using varying amounts of honey in the bottles meant this was very fizzy. The fizz meant the yeast rose up and made the beer very cloudy. If I was doing this again I'd use a better flocculating yeast. Apart from that it was a tasty brew and the spices and orange were tasty.
