I'm not sure what I'm brewing. What can I make with about 8# of two row, some flaked barley, a couple pounds of honey malt, and a buttload of assorted hops?  You give me recipe, and that's what I'll be brewing.
   If not, I just be messing with the new pump, and fine tuning plans for my new rig.

How about a 5 gallon batch of Creamy Honey Ale?

8# 2-row
1# Flaked Barley
.25# Honey Malt

Mash at 154.  Bitter with a clean bittering hop to between 20-25 IBUs.  Maybe do a mild flavor/aroma addition at 15 minutes with a low-alpha hop.  Ferment with US-05/1056 in the low 60s.

Sounds awesome, Monty.  Some BBQ porn would be much appreciated!  I'm thinking of firing up my smoker tomorrow.  If I do, I'll probably smoke a whole chicken and a pork shoulder.  Mmm...

This sounds like one of the easiest methods I've heard of to save and reuse yeast.  I'm definitely going to give it a shot!  Thanks for the tip, Crispy!

Click on the All-Grain Pictorial link in my sig to see how I brew. Actually, I should probably do a new pictorial soon since some of my practices have changed slightly in the past year.

There was a chocolate coconut porter brewed by a member of the Northern Brewer homebrewing forum, blankaBrew, that was actually featured on the History Channel show called "The Works."  It looked pretty interesting.  Here is a link to the recipe.

FWIW, I use about 10% in my Porter.  It contributes a nice roasty flavor without being bitter.
