Just a touch too dark a bit high ABV for they style and a touch of a honey taste.
Thus the name...

This was so good and I just polished off the last bomber of it last night sharing at the LHBS. Very well received there.

I'm brewing up another batch today. I am upping the honey malt to .75 lbs this time and I may up the FWH and 5 min addition to .5 oz each.

How did the changes compare to the original. I'm interested in this recipe...

Well, I think that it was a bit too malty / sweet / not balanced.

I have worked on this recipe a bit over the months and the latest incarnation won a 1st place ribbon at Mundelein's American Cup 2011.

My current recipe is below (it is a little lower OG of 1.061 but you could up the base malt a pound or two if you want):


9.50 lbs Two Row
0.50 lbs Flaked Barley
0.50 lbs Crystal 10
0.50 lbs Honey Malt
3 oz Biscuit

.5 oz Magnum @60
1 oz Willamette @ 10 min

Being that you're pitching either 1056 or safeale 05, yes, 65 would be rather perfect. When using a clean, neutral yeast like 1056, I always opt for its dry equivalent both for money and speed.

On a different note, I really like the addition of biscuit, just to give it a touch of toastiness. This is definitely my next brew.

I wouldn't go over 152, and preferably 150-151
