That's a lot of honey..last time I used Honey in a beer it all fermented out and instead of leaving a sweet honey flavor it dried the beer out....but that was an attempt in an IPA, hopefully someone who has tried to use it a Honey Nut Brown can fill in. Maybe because of the large amount it won't all ferment out.

They make Honey malt that leaves a sweetness behind that resembles honey.

Thanks for the suggestion. I might add 8 oz of Honey Malt and drop honey down to 1lb. Can you do both or is it one or the other?
