unboiled honey COULD screw up ya brew.. it contains wild yeasts that can chew thru all the carbs in the beer ( brewing yeast leaves dextrins etc) making it alcoholic but tasteless.

I've made a honey-maple porter
(i'll post the recipe if i get good results from the bjcp people)
and i can tell you that the honey drastically thins out the moutfeel
of a beer.This may or may not be important to you but i figured i'd give you the information.

I make a low ABV, easy drinking IPA that when I prime with honey, I can sometimes get a residual honey flavor. Not sure if it's bc it's a light IPA or if I drink them too fast for all the honey to convert.
