Honey Brown Ale

Currently brewing my brown ale recipe:

Should have a little chocolatey bitterness but mainly caramel sweetness and a bit of honey.  In many ways it is the weaker cousin of my porter, using smaller amounts of most of the same ingredients.

Will update further as this one progresses.

Brewing went off without too many problems.
  •  The thermometer appears to be off (boiling began at 220F rather than 212)
  • Some of the honey got stuck in the container and was thrown out (probably less than an ounce of honey, and this had been expected to some extent)
  • I forgot the Irish Moss so this one might not clear up as others have, but otherwise went according to plan.
