BTP Recipe

Recommended Posts

Good Evening to the Borg,

SO I have an idea for a Honey Porter partial mash using the following ingredients:
2 cans ot the old Mr. Beer Black Tower Porter
16oz. U.S. two Row
4 oz. Briess Chocolate malt
Dry hop 1/2oz. Glacier hops in Secondary
8 oz. Wild flower honey
1tsp. Irsh Moss
The old Mr. Beer Fromunda yeast

Expected measurements:
O.G:1.060 F.G: 1.011
SRM: 23
Hopville has the IBU's at 27.1 but I'm pretty sure it would be higher.
Final ABV: 6.5%
I've seen a lot of other recipies out there but looking for a good long lagering time for this one. I also have one can of American Porter that I might make up to do a side by side comparision.
SO let me know what you guys think. I haven't brewed it yet so let me know.
Thanks
:cheers:
Doc

I don't play with honey, but others might chime in in case this is not correct. If it is wild honey you are using, you should pasturize (boil) it to kill off an nasties that might be in it.

It has already been pasturized, but I'd be adding it to like the last five minutes of my boil anyway. Meant to type wildflower honey. Got it from my LHBS here in Norfolk.

I would add the honey after primary fermentation. The primary fermentation will blow the subtle overtones of the honey off with the CO2

Thanks haerbob3 and Time Traveler. What about using the honey at bottling time? I was thinking about that too, that would give me the honey flavor intesnity what would that do to the body? What if anything wouold happen if the honey was used for carbonation?
