- 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.

1 year agoAugust 30, 2016DeliciousRidiculously smooth, a robust well balanced flavor, yet light enough that it is not too heavy to drink more than 1. Would definitely brew again.August 8, 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, 2016Still fermentingStill in the fermenting stage, I love the smell of the grains let you know laterApril 26, 2016Not badI was hoping for more honey flavors. To me this was more like a general brown ale. Take the advice others have shared and double up on the honey. If I brew this again that's what I'll be doing.February 28, 2016First Ever Home BrewCame out great, Easy to understand instructions. Did make with 6 gallons of water by mistake and still came out great. Will buy againFebruary 5, 2016
- Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 8 answersWhat was the alcohol content on the final product?BEST ANSWER: The batch I did came in at 4.73% abvI added the hiney at the same time as the malt. How will that effect the outcome?BEST ANSWER: You will have less honey taste. For more honey taste carbonate with honey. Details of amounts on this website or in John Palmer's book on brewing.Thoughts 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.What is the ibu rating of this beer?BEST ANSWER: Calculated at 43.6 for my 4 gallon boil.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!
