It's too hot to make beer, but the kegerator is nearly empty.  I had some US-05 on hand for a pale ale I hadn't gotten around to making, so I picked up some apple juice and honey on my next grocery run.  I intended for this to be at least somewhat sweet, but the yeast chewed through nearly all of the sugars.  The tartness in the apple juice comes through in this recipe.


Would like at least some sweetness to remain; that's why I used an ale yeast instead of the usual wine or mead yeast (that, and ale yeast is what I had on hand).  Next time, I'll add more honey and see if that does it.
