I thought it was good that way. I would not want anymore honey flavor than I got by doing it that way. I did not secondary, BTW.
Me too, on all counts except I put it in @ ~ 1 min. -enough to let it see some heat before chilling. I think it was the beersmith pod cast where I heard someone say If you do a lot of honey beers and add it to secondary, you will eventually get an infected batch as honey is not clean. I suppose this is for non-pasteurized natural honey? Not sure about that.
Also, it is true that the flavor of honey will eventually degrade with the boil.
I suppose it depends on where you see yourself in this debate.

I added it at the very end of the boil too - I took some of the wort out, in a separate bowl, and softened the honey in it, then poured it into the boil at 1 or flameout, I don't remember. But it had a very nice wildflower/jasmine aroma and flavor.

So do you think the white house brewers will come up with a couple more brews during the second term, switch over to all grain, or maybe even start growing grains and hops in the white house garden?

I find lots of HBT threads mildly interesting and many more not interesting at all. But I don't bother posting just to say that.
