I know what using honey in an ale can dry it up, so I tried to go light (using what I guess is 3 lbs or 1/4 a gallon). I also added 1 pound of honey malt and 1 pound of crystal to add more sweetness to the final product.
any suggestions, even about the hop additions are welcome and appreciated.
I also considered using a higher mash temp to add some more sweetness but wasn't sure if that would be needed or if it would hurt the beer in some other way.
Also I was wondering about what yeast you would use, I was thinking just going with the American ale because I have had great results with it and lower abv pale ales.
