Hello,
My honey poter is 1/4 full and is bitter and sour (a bit). My hefe (1/2 full) is sweet and banana smell. I don't like either of them. I am thinking of mixing the two together. Yay or nay? What do you think the result will be like?

Try mixing a pint. Maybe it works, maybe not. I mix my ales at the tap.

it might work, the probably isn't bitter at all and the honey porter is, as well as darker and richer. Give it a shot.

Just today I read this about using blending to salvage a batch:

I've been recommending blending 2 "bad" or "off" beers for years to produce one good one.

Ok then, I'll try hefeporter this weekend, and will post back the result. I'll invite some friends for judging the new born.

Since I didn't like my "Hoegaarden Clone" very much, and since I was starting to get a little burned out on my stout, I started mixing the two and I've enjoyed the results.

I was surprised to read in BYO that Newcastle is a blend of two beers!
