When you list "2 vials White Labs American Ale Yeast" - does that mean you just pitched 2 vials or made a large starter using the 2 vials? - I'm looking to move from dry to liquid yeast and would hate to either double or halve the yeast needed. "Porter" and "Honey" are two of my favorite words so I am anxious to try this recipe.

i pitched 2 vials. I'm to lazy to make a starter so i would much rather just buy the extra yeast and pitch it.

I was thinking of adding some honey malt into the mix. Ya think thats a possibility to give it more of a honey flavor? or maybe drop some of that honey for honey malt??

Honey malt will give it that up from sweetness, while regular honey will be noticeable but on the back of the palate, depending on how much you use.

Planning on brewing this recipe over the weekend! The guy at my store said I'd probably be fine with just 1 vial of yeast, so I'm gunna try that. I've got an extra packet of dry ale yeast to throw in as a backup in case nothing happens. I picked up some clover honey that I'm planning to add after flameout to try and preserve some of the flavor/aroma too. Otherwise I'm following the recipe exactly.

I'll let you know how it turns out.
