Thanks figbash for the recipe. I'll definitely try that at some point. I've not graduated to wet yeasts yet.
I don't have any black malt. I looked for a recipe that just had pale, crystal and chocolate and found St. Peter's honey porter. i thought I'd give that a go with Nottingham yeast. It calls for honey added to the fermenter when the fermentation is under way. That sounds a bit nuts. We'll see what happens.
Or I may do this if I chicken out of the honey fermenter issue. I do like mild.
