An Unfortunate Beer

Am I too picky?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  Either way, Gluek’s Honey Bock is not delicious.  At first I thought it tasted like Busch Lite, and so I wondered, “Jason.  Is this beer cheaper than Busch Lite? If so, maybe that’s something.”

Of course, there is no circumstance under which I would buy Busch Lite, so it turns out, it’s nothing.

My wife’s review, of course, is polar opposite of mine.  She took one taste and said, “Not bad.”  I said, “Try another taste.”  She said, “Still not bad.”

If causes my marriage to fall apart, so help me God, I will hunt you down and kill you, Rett.

In conclusion, this beer is better than horrible.

  1. Actually both.You need the sugar to get alcohol. You need yeast to femenrt the sugar. If you want a high alcohol beer you will need a greater amount or concentration of femenrtable sugars. You are on the high side now for a tradiitonal Bock style but with a reasonable amount. I too would use both packets of the dry yeast. Add no more extract and keep in mind that you will boil off some water which will concentrate your wort. So add enough bolied water to bring your within range.
