8 tbsp loose black chai tea (was out of regular black tea but this stuff barely tastes like a chai anyway)
zest from 3 lemons
1/4 oz Fuggles hops
1/4 oz Cascades hops
1/2 kg honey
just over 1/2 kg Munton's light LME
Boiled about a gallon of water, added tea, lidded and steeped for a few hours, brought to a boil, added honey and malt, brought back to just a simmer, turned off the heat, added lemon zest and hops, lidded and let it steep a while longer, adding some boiled and cooled water to make up the volume.
It's still too warm to pitch the Munton's Active Brewing Yeast I have, but I added some yeast energizer (forgot how much, it's written on a post-it note stuck to the fermenter two flights of stairs away), and at around 2.5 gal and too warm, it had a SG around 1.040 so probably by the time it cools and I get the other half gal of water in there the SG should be probably around 1.040, if not I'll add a bit of honey while I'm rehydrating the yeast.
The plan is for this batch to be fermented, primed and bottled PDQ so I still have some summer left for my summer beer.
