Default Honey meets Saison?

I am currently living at my in-law's farm after my wife gave birth to our second son.
It's becoming very hard to be away from all of my beer gear, let alone not be able to brew.
So,I bit the bullet and brewed a 4.5ltr BIAB on mum's stove when she was sleeping Saturday night.
1kg pils malt
85gr flaked Tritticale and 15gr flaked oats
5gr Glacier@60, 15gr@20 and 10gr@10. Saison Dupont yeast
My problem is this: every time I go to the fridge, there are these two tubes of 140gr organic honey telling me that I really DO want to squeeze one of them into the now quiet beer.
So gentlemen, I hate to be the one to decide.
1) add the honey now
2)leave well enough alone
cheers, Lee

I like adding honey to random beers. It can really be neat.

It's one of those ideas that could just turn out fantastic, but if it doesn't, then I didn't loose out much from such a small batch,eh.

Well gents, I added the honey about 15 minutes ago and wet to the loo.
I came out, took a peek andfermentation had restarted and a new krausen was forming.
When honey met saison.

I just realised that I forgot to add whirl flock on brew night.
Looks like we are in for a murky yellow brew

I never use whirlfloc. When fermentation is complete just cold crash it for a few days.
