Today's events have finally come to a close, here is what I put in the primary.

2 lbs 10L Crystal Malt
1 lbs 40L Crystal Malt
4 lbs Pale Malt Extract
3 lbs Honey
1.5 lbs Brown Sugar
1 oz Chinook 14% Hops (30 Mins)
1 oz Pearle 7% Hops (15 Mins)

I added the honey and brown sugar after I finished the boil, but while the temperature was still over 200. Here is are the stats from BeerSmith:

Estimated Og: 1.066
Estimated Fg: 1.017
Bitterness: 33.7 IBU
Color: 12.2 SRM

My actual Og was: 1.070

I'm hoping for a brown, full bodied beer, with hints of rum and honey (from the brown sugar and honey.) By the reading I have been doing, hopefully this will come out to plan.

I'll keep you all posted. For now, it's time for me to de-label some bottles.

Cheers

While that recipe does sound delicious, I have to wonder about the wisdom of calling it a honey bucket ale....

I was wondering when someone was going to pick up on that. I thought it was a pretty funny name.

I think the name gives it a certain zing. I'd drink something called that. Killer recipe.

Wait - 2 oz chinook? How is your IBU only 33?
