Recipe Type: All Grain

Yeast Starter: none   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: none   
Batch Size (Gallons): 10   
Original Gravity: 1.061

Color: 20.1   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7-9 days 64-68 degrees F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7-9 days 64-68 degrees F   
Tasting Notes: Rich taste, slightly dry, like drinking a pecan pie when warmed a bit.   

DO NOT DRINK THIS BEER ICE COLD. Gets better as it sits after secondary (i give it 2 weeks maturation time). You may want to add a little carapils for better head retention. Also, bringing the brown sugar down a bit will probably cut the dry alcohol edge off. Add 2 cap-fulls venetian vanilla extract to secondary as well as 1lb candied pecans (slightly broken) You will need to rack twice in order to get out all sediment. If kegging first 3 pints will be cloudy. Enjoy!

Wowza, that's alot of honey malt! Sounds interesting though and I'd really like to try it. Unfortunately, something like this I have such a hard time committing myself to 5 gallons.

Well I committed myself to 10 gallons this weekend... split it into 2 batches of 5 and pitched different yeasts into each batch.

My basement's 69 degrees, so I'm hoping that's ok to ferment at. I placed my fermenters directly underneath an AC vent that's normally closed (I opened it) so that my drop the temp a few degrees.

I knocked 3# of 2-row off because the brewing software said it was too malty. I like a little more hops so I split the Tettnang 2oz. for 20 mins, and the other 2oz. at 10. I'm guessing that wasn't too big of a deviation.
