Just brewed your updated recipe, was a little low on gravity (1.054)... But I think I ended up with around 5.5 -6 gallons. Upped the 2 row to 10#, added 3 oz pure honey, and added .5# of corn sugar. Also added 7 grams of fresh rosemary @ 15 & 5 min (3.5 + 3.5 grams). Will update how it comes out! Used WLP 001 aslo...

How did this turn out for you? Never tried rosemary in a beer, curious to hear how it was.

does anyone think it would be too much for this style to up to .5 lbs of biscuit?

like as follows:

9.50 lbs Two Row
0.50 lbs Flaked Barley
0.50 lbs Crystal 10
0.50 lbs Honey Malt
0.50 lbs Biscuit I can lower this to the 3 OZ, just looking for some feedback on how this might be upped a bit.

and then it looks like the consensus on the hopping schedule was

.5 oz Magnum @60 (I may just FWH this addition)
1 oz Willamette @ 10 min

US-05 at 65 for forever right?

Looking to brew this week, so curious on some feedback here.

Not at all. I usually add at least 0.5 lbs of Victory or 1+ lbs of Munich to my light hybrid ales - this much biscuit would have a similar contribution. I like the toasty note it adds to easy drinking beers like these.

Picked up ingredients today, home brew guru said he wouldn't recommend to go over 1\2 of honey because it starts to lend a sour taste, so gonna do 1/2 lb of everything amd see how it turns out, brewing on wednesday. And holy smokes honey malt smells amazing!!

1/2 pound of Honey malt in a 5 gallon batch is about the sweet spot. It can get a little cloying over that.

Just cracked open my forst bottle of this and it came out great!

Nice, well rounded brew. I mashed at 152 and the rest of my numbers were spot on, i think this one finished at like 1.006 -.008 in that range, i could drink this all night.

Edit
Also, i did the updated version.

Another edit
Im going to brew this again very soon. Its good cold, but 5-10 mins in the glass and its freakin delish. I split the batch with a buddy so i only have 20 or so bottles of this. Im going to try it with dennys fav 50 1450 and do a side by side. Ill update this thread with the results.
