What would be the best way to convert this to an extract brew?

I would use Beersmith to convert it...with a few slight changes...

7 lbs Pale Liquid Extract
12.0 oz Caraaroma
12.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L
8.0 oz Carafoam / cara-pils
1 oz Crystal hops 4.3% 60 minutes
1 oz cascade hops 5.9% 30 minutes
1 whirflock 10 minutes
1lb honey flameout


that should get you fairly close.
you really should look at moving up to All Grain.. BIAB (Brew In A Bag) is an affordable option for All Grain brewing. Its easy to brew All Grain, its cheaper, and the beer in my opinion tastes better.

I second this. BIAB all grain is easy and satisfying. Also, spent grain is a good way to make friends with chicken owners and get some free eggs.

So I was making another batch of this last night having made it last year and remembering its awesomeness...but half way through the boil I thought I forgot the honey and added it then, instead of at flameout...how do you think this will affect the outcome?

You will lose the flavor that the honey adds to the beer. Basically, that is equivalent to pouring pure sugar into the wort

Not sure if the typo is OP's or my LHBS's website but I couldn't find "Melanoiden" malt when searching their site. Googled it and found the spelling "Melanoidin" which they did have!

Everything in stock at the LHBS...Placed the order and I'll pick up tomorrow after work. Cant wait to brew, hopefully next weekend!

So, I've made two batches of a slightly altered version of this.

The first I brewed on 10/4/12 and bottled on 10/25/12. Looked good, smelled good... tasted sketchy. It had a medicinal quality to it. I kicked up some trub when bottling, so I thought that might be why. I figured it would settle out. After cracking open most of the bottles throughout December, I found that some of the bottles were fine (tasted exceptional) and some were not (tasted like old Band-Aids). I'm not sure what the issue was. Bottles weren't all clean enough? I scrubbed the hell and sanitized them all the same. Excess sediment got dropped in random bottles? Possibly. I really did piss it off when bottling. Was it the honey? Maybe? I bought bulk and racked on top of it, rather than adding it at flame out. Maybe the quality of the honey wasn't as good as it was made out to be. Something, somewhere along the line wasn't as clean/sanitized as it could have been? Possibly, though I'm very meticulous and I figure that would have been 100% bad across the board, rather than 50/50-ish.

At any rate, I drank them all/gave them away, horrible taste or no.

I brewed a second batch almost as soon as my fermenter was empty, on 11/20/12. I had not really discovered that the original batch was funky as I was doing this, but when I had I kinda decided to just let it hide away in my closet. I didn't want to find out that it, too, was funky.

While the beer was being quarantined, I decided to upgrade to a kegerator (I could no longer see myself spending an entire day bottling every few weeks. I'm lazy and I drink quickly -- not a great combo).

I finished my build this past weekend and finally got the CO2 tank on Monday. The second batch went in the keg (the first ever) after seven weeks in the fermenter. I was particularly careful about not disturbing the ginormous cake at the bottom.

The sample (reading at an ideal 1.010) was, despite my trepidation, fantastic. It was also much, much clearer than the first run.

Currently, I'm burst carbing it and should have a glass drawn off tonight. If all goes well, I'll have a picture or two to follow (the original batch made me so sad I forgot the camera).
