Within 12 hours fermentation was very active, withing 20 hours it was spewing, this is a picture of the start, by the next day it was all over and as soon as the active phase ended and it stopped spewing, I cleaned the outside of the keg with star san and also removed the lid and cleaned it with star san. The smells coming off this are so nutty, I'm loving it, I hope she turns out. Will update as things happen.

Very nice. Looks delicious. Definitely update with tasting notes when you try one. Of course not for a good month or so though.

I must say LeRwnardS13 I am impressed with how you've embraced this hobby and come up with some really great looking recipes. This one looks very tasty and I'll have try it out.

Keep up the great work.

Bottled lastnight after 22 days fermenting.

FG = 1.011 for a final abv of 6.4%

used 2.7 oz of pasteurized honey with water as a simply syrup to batch prime 8.5 litres.

Letting this one carbonate for 4 weeks so it'll be atleast that long before another :gulp: update

btw it had a nice caramel aroma and a great nut flavour, and just enough of an alcohol bite.

Very nice brown. will definitely repeat this recipe. Don't know if I'll go with honey for priming next time though. It didn't seem to turn out well in some of the bottles.
