Seems fine. As long as you add some fresh yeast at bottling you should be fine.

SO i quoted you because i wanted to get your advice, I want to make this beer BAD, but i have a question about the honey. I didnt read anywhere on here wether the honey came through or not, you did mention not to use wildflower honey cuz it was funky. I read or heard some where thet you could add honey at high Krausen to preserve some of the flavor and aroma as well as make it a starged addition so the yeast will work on that harder to break down maltose. Do you have any advice for me. THank you and cheers!!

Brewed this as my first brew ever back in October. Followed the initial recipe on here to the letter with the lone exception being the honey at about 40oz (which was an accident). I gave it three weeks primary with no secondary and pitched with 1 1/2 pkg US-05. OG 1.082 and FG 1.018 (a bit off but I never brewed a thing before going all grain so I hear that's pretty solid). I kegged it and boy do I wish I had given it just a few extra weeks to condition before cosumption. After about 2 weeks it tasted so amazing and was unfortunately at the bottom of the barrel. Will make this again for sure.

I brewed this today. OG was 1.090. It was also my first time using pellet hops. I must say I did not get the hop aroma that I usually notice when I brew with whole hops. This makes me a little nervous, but it was a lot easier. It looks so good! Waiting will be hard with this one.

Planning on making this (pretty much the original recipe, with the added SpecialB) with two medium toast American oak spirals I soaked in a batch of traditional mead for six weeks. I'm going to add the mead infused spirals to the secondary to soak for six weeks in this honey porter. Can't wait, but I'm going to have!

Definitely a rookie question... How do I go from converting the recipe from % into lbs so I can get the correct OG for a 5.5G batch?

I brewed this back in february and just opened my first bottle. my final gravity was a bit high so the ABV is 9%. It is full of flavor and easy to drink. by far the best porter I have had. Thanks for the recipe! This is a dangerous beer.
