no honey is organic because it would be impossible to regulate/keep track of all of the various flowers any given hive of bees gathers from. even if your bees are kept right beside an organic peach orchard, you can't ever be 100% sure that some of the little buggers aren't flying 2 miles down the road and gathering from a pesticide-laden alfalfa field.

No one has come out and said " I think its a good idea for you to add honey to your porter recipe." Well, let me tell you, I think its a good idea for you to add honey to your porter recipe. I have a vanilla porter that on a whim i added about a pound of some orange blossom honey my sister in law picked up in greece. It made the porter as far as i was concerned. Did it about 1 min left in boil.

Soooo....what was the final outcome? Did it work like you thought? Were you happy with the results? Would you do anything different?

I'm thinking of brewing a honey porter too so I'm trying to gather opinions of those who have tried it before me...

I put honey in a nut brown a couple years ago and I thought it was pretty good, but I have heard since then that most of the honey flavor doesn't stick around and the sugars are all fermented. A couple posts have mentioned honey malt to get the taste instead. I haven't tried it - any comments from people who have?
