I use a pound of honey malt in all of my imperial ipa's. They've been great so far.I'm planning on doing an IPA tomorrow with a full pound of the honey malt. Should be interesting to see how it comes out.
Results seem to be very different. Will report back in a month or so.
I agree. I don't think the flavor would change between one or the other, but the perception of sweetness might. Especially if the yeast used has a lower attenuation. Just a thought.Pardon my ignorance, but if you're looking for flavor, what are you suggesting is the difference between steeping and mashing? You're just making barley tea. Mashing will convert some of the starch to fermentables, but that's the only difference that I can think of
