Recipe looks good. But I won't be able to make it. We have a family funeral to attend on Saturday. Hope it warms up for you. If your having problems with Honey Malt, I've read that both Melanoidin or Aromatic malts make a decent substiture. Good luck!

I won't make it because I've got to work, but I'd recommend you go for Melanoidin if you can get it as a substitute. I experimented in the past using the same base pale ale recipe and varying 1-lbs of specialty malt in each batch. I've used Honey Malt and Aromatic Malt in those experiments - I don't think they are anything alike. Honey Malt has a very intense honey-like flavor, Aromatic Malt is just a basic intense malty flavor/aroma, not honey-like at all.

Either way, I'm sure the recipe will make a great beer, but if you're trying to stay more true to the source (honey flavor), I think Melanoidin Malt has more of that.

I think Redtail may have some honey malt. Ask him.
