Default Maris/Honey Malt recipe thoughts

I made a throw together batch today with some stuff I had around....how do ya guys/girls think it will turn out?


6 Gallon Batch

9# Maris Otter
1# Honey Malt
1#Amber DME (I got tired of looking at it in my cupboard)

Mashed at 1.5qt/lb at 152F for 70min

60 min boil with .5oz East Kent at 60,45,30,15

OG ended up at 1.053

Safale s-05 (only yeast I had in house (for emergencies))

I live in the desert so it will ferment at ~70 for ~3 weeks.


So what do you ppl think?

I think it'll be quite tasty. Maybe sweet, maybe bitter, but it'll be different. Let us know how it turns out.

I don't know- people go nuts about honey malt being hyper sweet but that's just not been my experience. It's sweeter than light crystals but this beer is sub 10%. I've seen commercial beers with more, and the recommended usage by the manufacturer is up to 20%.

It's on the higher end of what I would use for honey malt but should be a fine and tasty brew

ssooo... it turned out tasting like buttered corn.... heavy dms and diacetyl. I boiled for 90 and kept it right at 70F...i don't know what I did wrong. this is the first time this has happened, coincidentally this is the first time I got grain from this particular LHBS. I am going to try this again (out of principle) with grain from my normal lhbs and see what happens.

two weeks in? Give it some time. I can hardly believe DMS after a 90 minute boil. I do like your tenacity though.
