Adding honey malt to a steam beer
I've made a honey steam with just using honey, 3lbs of it. Thinking of trying honey malt instead but not sure how much since I've never used it

What you think

People say that it can have a very strong flavor if too much is used.
I would recommend using between 0.5 to 1 lb.
You can always increase the amount for subsequent batches

I'm sure it will add a nice touch to that grain bill

I just used 5% in an american blonde and it is barley noticable. I will be trying 10% next time. Never tried it in a steam beer but it sounds good.

I'm not the biggest fan of steam but I've always thought it would be more to my tasting with honey or some spice...give it a go. 5-10% is a great starting place.
