It would sweeten the beer and make it impossible to carbonate by natural means.

but since he's talking about cider, flat beer might not be a concern.

Just messing with ya... you would have the same problem of carbonation with the cider, but some people like the cider flat, so...

LewisM - You'd have a non-carbonated cider with honey in it. If it takes your fancy try it. Apples and honey work well together!

Where in this post does it say anything about cider? Except in the thread... never mind. Some of us think it is only about beer.

Use campden tablets to kill the yeast, then sweeten to taste. I generally just use some more juice, but honey would be a nice touch. I'm fine with flat ciders, I put just enough pressure on the keg to deliver.

Wheat beer, too!

Are you going to have to start another Inquisition?
