Honey beer

Yesterday and today, I've made 50 litres of honey beer. A custom "order" from Lady Francesca here in Darton. It is quite quick and easy to make.

For a 25 liter batch:
Boil 83 g hops (5.6 %) in 8 litres of water for 30 minutes.
Strain the liquid through a fine cloth and stir in 2.5 Kg of honey.
Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes.
Add to boiling bin and top it up with water to make 25 liter.
Add the juice from 4 large lemons.
When temperature is about 40 degree Celsius, add beer yeast (I'm using ale yeast).
Starting gravity, 1042.
