start with a go...

Try one when they are completely thawed. If it turns out fine, then assume that the others are

As packaged, it looks like you would calculate about 80 IBU, and with your modified hopping

Honey malt is nice, and almost completely, but not quite entirely, unlike crystal malt. Honey
malt gives a honey flavor with some nuttiness and will self-convert, with a diastatic power of

CaraVienne is not an aromatic malt, but rather a crystal (or caramel, if you prefer) malt. It
