Honey MALT is a type of grain, it imparts a sweeter flavor into the beer, OP used actual honey. The difference here is that a lot of the time the honey gets eaten up by the yeast as it is sugar and therefore ends up contributing more to ABV rather than really adding to flavor.

What has been posted as an alternative idea was using honey malt for the honey/sweeter flavor and then to keep with the boost in ABV adding brown sugar at about 5 minutes before flameout (or end of boil).

If you decide to use the honey MALT, just add it into your other grains. I did it with the honey malt and the result was awesome. In NO way saying adding the honey ISN'T a good choice, that was merely my personal mod to this recipe, which is an AMAZING one.

This beer didn't last more than a week once it was carbed.

exactly.. the honey in my recipe is simply there as an easy boost to the ABV. if you want a little sweeter beer then please by all means use the honey malt. Both ways make a great beer (yep, I tried the honey malt too). Either way you will get a beer that is a deep red in color, with a roasty flavor that is balanced but malty.. like others have said, it won't last long.

The color is amazing. If you want to make a beer that will blow your non-beer making friends away from the moment you pour it, this thing has merit on looks alone....

My wife LOVES this beer. Had a couple of buddies over last night and they think this is the best one I've ever made. Making another 10 gallons this afternoon. It looks like its going to be one of the beers I keep on tap year round. Thanks again for this recipe.

How would White Labs Irish Ale WLP004 yeast work with this recipe?
