Hi folks! I know, I know, I know - this question has probably been answered elsewhere, but I'm looking for YOUR opinion. I'm brewing my honey hef from extract for the first time this Friday night. I've scaled the recipe down quite a bit as this will be my first from-scratch recipe. Here it is (followed by a question I'm really hoping you all can help me with):
3 lbs. wheat dme
6 oz. honey malt (steeped)
1.5 oz. saaz hops (1 oz. for 60, .5 with 5 minutes left)
Safale US-05 (going for neutral ferment so as not to mess with the honey flavor I'm looking for)
2 lbs. honey
Here's my question - what the hell do I do with the 2 lbs. of honey? I've thought about using 1 lb. for the full boil (knowing that I'll lose any and all flavor/aroma from the pound, but will add to the SG I really need), then the other pound at flame out (letting it rest for 10 mins at flame out with hopes I'll pick up the additional flavor/aroma, along with adding to the OG). I'm looking for a nice honey flavor on the nose and palate. Do you think my plan will suffice?
Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated. Thanks folks!
