Grapefruit Honey Ale

We have had another try at making beer, again with a kit from the Brooklyn Brewshop. This is a pale ale, with Columbus and Cascade hops, and also calls for the skin of a grapefruit to be dried and added near the end of the boil, along with some Belgian Candi Sugar and honey.  The fermentation was over within a few days, and there was a lot of sediment in this brew.  It’s now bottled, and put away for a couple of weeks.
