Let rise naturally to 62*F and hold there for duration of primary and secondary. Dry hops added once primary fermentation complete.


Future Versions:
------------
Based on judging commentary from 3 different competitions, future versions should have more hops to balance the richness/intensity of the malt or less intense malt to balance the hops. Regardless, hope someone else can brew a take on this and comment how it turned out.

Have you tried this again? I am looking for ideas for a brew competition where we have to use honey. I had an idea of a honey alt. Discovered the sticke style while researching. I would like to use honey malt in addition to honey so i can get some honey flavor. I was thinking of a little special B and some chocolate instead of the carafa. I'm still relatively a noob, so what are your thoughts on that? How would you adjust the hops?
