You can worry about raw honey if you want but I don't. If you can see thru it, its probley already pasteurized. Yes the flavors of honey are delicate and you loose a lot when you boil it, but if its pasteurized the subtle aromas are already gone. I've heard of compromises of holding raw honey at 150-160 for 15mins, so you don't loose too much flavor and sleep a little better.
You may want to thin it out with some water before throwing into the beer, you could toss it in when you transfer to the secondary.
1/2 cup for carbonation, again thin it out a little.
there are worse things than
but it often takes decades
to realize this
and most often
when you do
it's too late
and there's nothing worse
