I like the recipe you have there now, without the coffee malt. I think the smoked malt could be interesting and I don't see anything out of place for a Smoked Pumpkin Porter type beer. Though I don't see the need for the honey - if you are looking for increased ABV, I'd just add more malt or extract. You're not going to be able to detect any honey flavor/aroma with everything else going on in there.

The honey was to boost the ABV a little. I decided to use honey because I have a bunch on hand, and I also like to try out something new with each batch... I've never put honey in a porter before so why not

Posting here a lot. You really need to update new content frequently to keep people coming back and get Google to list you more and drag you up the search results. You can also pimp your blog out with seo to drive you up the results.

for those following my blog, I just tasted my Smoken dirty blond ale. It is a really great beer. Prob the best beer i have made in 5 years or so of brewing. It tastes like a much lighter version of Newcastle which was unexpected but fantastic. You can find the recipe as well as more details on the beer on my blog

I brewed up a dry stout yesterday and posted the recipe. I'm hoping I can keep brewing and posting on Sundays at a minimum, but I failed at this last weekend.

Damn school taking time away from brewing again

thought this night be helpful to some others. I made some charts for the White Labs Ale yeast strains that I use all the time now. There are 4 charts comparing the following for each white labs strain

Attenuation
Flocculation
Optimum Fermentation Temperature
Alcohol Tolerance

there is a Link on my blog below to the 4 PDF files if you are interested
