I'm an extract brewer. I've steeped a lot but thought I'd try a pm with some Honey malt. From what I understand, it has enough diastatic power to self-convert but I don't know how much difference it will make in the final outcome of the beer. Here's the recipe, any comments would be welcome:
This is for a 2.8 gallon batch with a 2 gallon boil.
3lbs. Dark DME (non-negotiable because I've already got it) 80% at flame out.
.25lbs. Roasted Barley
.25lbs. Chocolate Malt
.25lbs. Coffee Malt
.25lbs. Special B
.5lbs. Honey Malt (mashed)
.25lbs. Carmelized sugar at flame out
.5oz. Magnum (first wort)
.5oz. Northern Brewer(30min)
