I did not boil my honey in this batch, though it was dissolved in boiled and slightly cooled water and added right at flameout.
I am sure a lot of people are going to scream blasphemy, but I kind of feel that the 'boiling honey will ruin your mead' is a myth. Will it change it? Probably. For better or for worse? I don't really know as I have never done a side-by-side comparison. This guy did
, and his results were interesting but like everything else on the internet I take it with a grain of salt.
I wonder if any HBT guys/gals have tried it yet? I don't make mead often enough to justify this experiment and its got such a long turn around time I don't know if I could commit to it.
