358/2176) Home:  My Beer, Version 3 brewed by Me in Ontario: **1/2;

For this version I set aside the dried hop pellets that come with the Brooklyn Brewshop kit, with the idea in mind to make a double IPA next time out, and instead I used hops picked the same morning in my backyard added directly to the boil.   I used muslin (cheesecloth) bags to reduce the need to filter.  I also decreased the amount of  honey, perhaps a bit too much as it was lacking for carbonation.  Even so, honey is still there in the nose.  Maybe I should use that cheap stuff and not the artisanal varieties.  I tasted notes of honey and fresh hoppy bitterness.  It was well worth the effort.
