The inspiration for this beer was a recent study showing that buckwheat honey had more anti-oxidants than other honies. Since anti-oxidants have been promoted by the brewing industry, why not try and make a pleasing beer with more anti-oxidants?
Buckwheat honey was added at last 15 min of boil.
7.4 *B (calc 2.1 *P) on 8/5/04 and temp moved up to 66F.
2.5 gal to keg and bottled 3.5 gal w/ 2oz corn sugar.
