Batch 8-005: Honey Blonde Braggot

Last Saturday, I taught a class on mead making at Sograte BBQ & Brew in celebration of Mead Day 2012. During the class, we sampled six different kinds of honey and three types of mead. As a group we also made a cream soda mead that should be tasty! Cary may even make it available on tap when it is ready.

As part of the class, I attempted my first braggot. I have always wanted to try to make one and the class offered a great opportunity for me to research and brew one. Here is the recipe:


  • 6 lbs Golden Light Malt Extract
  • 1 lb Golden Light DME
  • 1 lb honey malt
  • 1 lb flaked wheat
  • 1 oz Fuggle 4% hops @60 min
  • 1 oz 7C's hops @2 min
  • 12 lbs orange blossom honey
  • 1 pkt Safale US-05 Dry Ale Yeast
  • water to 5 gal
  • OG: 1.142
