Nice! Thanks for sharing. As I said before, I really have limited experience with honey malt,
but BM's recipe and feedback make me want to try it out in some hoppier beers. Cheers!

I have limited experience with honey malt (maybe one or two batches using it), but it would add
some sweetness for sure. It might complement the Munich nicely, but the beer would be sweeter -

To me, it has a resiny, herbal/floral/spicy flavor and aroma. Sources say it's similar to
Northern Brewer, but I've never used NB so I can't confirm that notion. I DO know that I

In my experience, I have to get the sparge water up to at least 190 to get the grain bed up to

Well, it's OBVIOUSLY been a while, but I just wanted to report back that I got it to work! I

I've heard from others that out of the keg, Hopslam is not quite as good. It doesn't "pop" as
much with the hops, apparently. Myself, I only had it on draft this year and it was smooth, but

+1 on 2 sparge additions adding nothing to efficiency. I've done it both ways, and the
efficiency gain with 2 sparge additions has been no better than 3%. Is 3% worth the extra time
and effort of spli...

Cool, thanks for clarifying. I may try just building a wooden base and then constructing the
sides and top out of foam board (including the door/opening) to save on material cost and
labor. But who kn...
