Beer Style: Mild  (11A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons



This recipe is in response to my girlfriend's request for a lighter version of the Sam Adams Honey Porter clone. The porter was nice, but dark (as Porters go), so Gorgeous George was born. It is a standard English Mild Ale that has been tweaked to blend with a warm honey flavor. Enjoy.


  • 1/2 lb. Paul's Best Mild Ale Malt (crushed)
  • 1/2 lb. Paul's English 2-Row Pale Malt (crushed)
  • 1 lb. Paul's Crystal Malt (crushed)
  • 6 lbs. amber malt syrup
  • 3 lbs. light honey (2 medium Honey Bears)
  • 1 oz. Fuggles - boiling (60 minutes)
  • 1/2 oz. Willamette - boiling (30 minutes)
  • 1/2 oz. Willamette - finishing (5 minutes)
  • Wyeast 1098XL "British Ale"

Brewed using the step-mash method outlined in Dave Miller's brewing guide. Boil for 1 1/2 hours, adding in the different stages of hopps at the appropriate time. I added the honey at the same time as the amber malt syrup, directly after steeping the crushed malts.

Final product should have a honey gold color, sweet honey aroma with a bit of spicy fuggle mixed in.
