And I'm not just talking about the picture. My gorgeous, loving, tolerant wife let me buy 15 pounds of buckwheat honey from Fruitwood Orchards up in New Jersey. That's enough honey for me to make roughly 40 gallons of our house "porter", the Sirius Black Honey Ale. I'll brew 20 gallons of it at the end of March with the borrowed equipment from Jerry Carney.

And now, a beer haiku:

My honey's sweetest
Wild, potent, gorgeous and dark
Buckwheat is good too

Heh. Thank god I'm not an literary major... I need to stick to engineering.

Mmm. That looks mighty delicious. I have contemplated using on of their other varieties, but I think the buckwheat is the true winner. That is a nice deep colour.
