- What would happen if you augmented the slightly dry, caramelly and roasty character of a smooth, mellow English brown ale with the sweet floral flavor of honey? What if you added the honey at the very last possible minute to maximize its presence in the finished beer? What if it was delicious? This recipe is a spinoff of our highly popular Nut Brown Ale kit that combines American malts, hops and ale yeast with honey. A well-balanced and intensely drinkable beer.

Did make with 6 gallons of water by mistake and still came out great. Will buy againFebruary 5, 2016great brewi brewed this a good while ago and what a great beer. I squeezed the grain bag hard at the end and this created and unbelievable coffee flavor everyone loves! It was a total mistake that had a great outcome. I'm getting ready to order again and glad i kept good notes so I can repeat the flavor. I also bottled with 9 tablespoons of clover honey. As always northern brewer is the best!May 18, 2016Great BeerAs always a great beer. I chose the extract just due to limited time for a brew day.May 5, 2016Still in 2ndaryWas easy enough to make. It is in the last week of secondary fermentation at the moment. Had an OG of 1050 and FG of 1010. Not bad...April 28, 2016Deliciously Smooth Brown AleThis was our 2nd brown ale and it didn't disappoint. We have 3 dedicated taps in our home bar....Cream Ale, Brown Ale and an IPA tap. This Honey Brown Ale will stay on the rotation list for a long time. The late addition of honey provides for a subtle (very subtle) sweetness across the palate. The smoothness of the brown ale is enjoyed from first sip to last. This beer is a fan favorite for even the less experienced beer aficionado. Great job to NB for providing a well priced, delicious kit.June 25, 2015brown and honeyA really good beer better than any honey brown you can buy at the store.December 17, 2013Solid BeerAdded vanilla beans to the primary.

Enjoying my third. Bottle of this brew. Very smooth, tasty and sutle hint of honey. Will brew this again.July 26, 2014
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersThoughts about adding apples to the secondary or would the apple and specialty grains clash?BEST ANSWER: Hi Kyle
I think the flavor could be OK..but the mouth feel and body would probably be a little too light. Honey already thins out the body of the beer slightly and apples would do the same. You would need to add a lot of apple to get a significant flavor contribution and that much apple would thin out the beer significantly..so I would not recommend it.Can you double the amount of honey you put in. And if so should I do anything differentBEST ANSWER: I would not add more than 1 extra pound to avoid changing the character too much. It tastes better with one pound of honey but if you want to have the extra alcohol that would be an OK way to accomplish it but that can have many effects on the final beer and I would not recommend it. Cheers!
