    I've tasted GNOs, and liked them. But I have yet to brew a beer with them. I am thinking of making a honey blonde, and want to add some GNOs. How much should I add to get some noticeable flavor? 10% maybe?

    I really liked them too, but have only used them in a stout and a brown. 10% would likely be noticeable to me in a blonde.

    10% will add a nice malty sweetness and a great body. I use 6-10% in my 3% ABV beers with great results.

    I normally mill them separate. They are smaller than barley so I tighten up the mill for them.

    I've used 12% in my honey blonde before and it turned out awesome.

    I've never used them myself, but I recently picked some up with the intention of brewing @FATC1TY 's White Wine Saison whenever I find the time. I'm curious to see what flavors they impart.

    I run them through the mill twice. They are very small.

    I have used them in an IPA before instead of a crystal or other coloring grain addition and thought it made the beer way too honey sweet for an IPA...but it does sound perfect in a Honey Blonde!

    I stopped using them because they seem to have a problem with weevils (from different suppliers no less)
    They can be kind of oily...someday I will give them a shot again as I liked what they brought to a dry stout.

    On a side note... @VikeMan I don't see them in Brewcipher. Could I use Caramel 10L to get a rough idea when predicting mash ph?

    Yes, I would copy the specs from c10.

    I have made an English Summer Ale / Bitter type beer using 7%-10% GNOs, Golden Promise, WY1469, and various English-y hops. The first time around, I went with 10% to be sure I would recognize its contribution.
