On the matter of honey, Since last May I have been using 1LB 4 oz in my english IPA. It had been giving me right at 1084 and fermented down to 1014. I did 30 minutes at 150 degrees and then step it up to 1060. However the last time I did 150 for 60 minutes(until conversion actually). It hit 1087 but finished at 1004. When we set down with this years hopslam, my hophead friends thought the honey was the same as hopslam but the beer was dryer. The step version also tasted the honey the same by all of us. I used the cheapest honey my Kroger store had in stock. If you go upwith honey you will present more honey flavor.

The honey flavor isn't from liquid honey. It's from honey malt.

I'm at the fire station today, but I'll post my last recipe when I get home..., yes you get some flavor from the malt, you also get some from the honey as well.

Here's the recipe, I pitched from a 2 liter starter that I got going on brew day with a decant and 1 liter of clean wort to wake up the yeast.I used 1272 due to having that on hand. Just a little over 2.5 lbs of Honey added at flame out. I've done a few side by side comparisons with others and this by far is as close as they come (IMHO).... Slightly more upfront bitterness, but it was really attributed to having a fresher quality than the bottle of hopslam. If anyone gets the chance to do this one, please let me know your experience!
