I always wondered if it would work well in a bier de garde since most of the top ones indigineously do have this distinct honey sweetness to them, especially Jenlain ambree and printemps . . .gooooooood stuff!

@drkaeppel: how large was the whole grain bill that this went in? My honey pale ale finally completed and 2 oz. in a 9 lb. bill ended up with a rich honey flavor and aroma. It's delicious, but I wonder if 10% honey malt might be a bit much. What do you think?

My entire grain bill was 14.75lb, so 1lb = 6.7% honey malt.

I've never tried a recipe with 10% honey malt. I imagine it would be a pretty dominant flavor, but with enough hops to balance it out, it may actually turn out nicely.

My honey ale was made with the hop burst method (all hops from 15 minutes from the end, forward). With a total of 5.50oz of hops, the flavors balance out very well. It probably would have been very different if I did a more traditional hop additions, but I wanted more hop flavor/aroma in the batch without it being overly bitter too.

If you are going for a honey pale ale add a few pounds of it to your grain bill. I agree that it tastes more like honey than actual additive of honey. Add 7.5 pounds of 2 ROW 1-2 pounds of honey malt and .5lbs of cara-pils and 1-1.5 oz of cluster ...maybe some maize and oats and you got a fantastic summer ale !!!! try and keep the OG under 1.045 or else it gets a little boozy

My honey ale is over 15% honey malt to the grist. Otherwise it's just UK 2 row malt. Hop bursting method for that part (20 minutes from the end forward). Batch coming up uses 7oz of hops, due to lower AA% levels on the main hop used.

I won't add maize to my brews. Have yet to find any that would actually benefit from such an addition. IF/when I brew a stout, I'll probably add flaked barely to it.

BTW, the majority of my brews are over 6% ABV. My 8.8% mocha porter has a little after-effect on it. But they're all smooth and clean.
