I think you should talk to us about the honey pacifica avacado honey.  Great company, I like their honey but I haven't had the chance to use avacado honey yet.  cheers, j

congrats on the publicity!

Come to the AHA Conference in SD! :)

And I tell you what - that's the cold packed raw honey (aka no heat, minimally filtered) and man it ain't cheap. That 3 lb jar cost $18!

It's also dark and tastes / smells like molasses.

I should make the 1/1.5 hr drive south sometime and join a meeting, your club is one of the most prolific in the nation and I could learn some stuff!

Man do I wish I could make it.  I just finished up a braggot made with their orange blossom honey (same price)   :o but WOW was I impressed with the quality of their honey.  I've created a couple mead recipes that would involve either the avocado or buckwheat honey blended with a lighter honey; I just haven't had the time to make them.  Ok,  I'll wait till after the conference but then we should discuss this subject again.  cheers, j

Nice Drew. I'm glad you are a real human. That avatar looks too much like the back-cover of a novel.

Nice T-shirt you were wearing in the article.  I have often said that opening a brewery is just an excuse to sell T-shirts.

Hell, I'm pretty shameless too!

Although I have to laugh at that first pic of me and the yeast jar. Look like I have freaky long fingers.

Oh, sorry, you'll have to wait for the article to come out in Zymurgy...  ;D

Ok, ok.. here's the recipe
http://www.maltosefalcons.com/recipes/saison-guacamole

The thing turned out awesome. The honey is deep, rich, redolent of molasses. It's strange to sit there and try it and have to remember that this is honey, not molasses. I added it at knockout and let it whirlpool for 10 minutes to minimize aromatic loss while maximizing safety!

No! No more waiting!  ;D Nice, I like it.  That's quite the spice addition, I would have liked to taste that one, out of curiosity.  Any other notes from the honey along with the taste of molasses or...?  Sounds like it might be overwhelming in a braggot setting.  Any future plans to use it again?  Thanks for sharing.  cheers, j

Drew poured me a sample of that recipe on Club night at NHC...and I have to admit, I was skeptical at first which isn't normally like me, but that beer was awesome.

Well done Drew. :)
