I contacted my local HBS www.LOVE2BREW.com and they said they'll ship international.
Also http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com/ says on their website that they'll ship international.
Both have honey malt.

I think it has arrived.
No joke! 20 years ago your were paying how much for diesel and jet fuel?

When shipping costs more than the product you have to start reconsidering your desire for said product.

Apart from drying your beer out, "real honey" does pretty much nothing to flavor. This malt does, and I use some honey malt in many ales calling for "honey."
Nonsense! Adding honey at flameout absolutely adds flavor and aroma. It is unmistakeable. I use one to two pounds in my honey ales/wheats.

Honey, along with any other simple sugar, has the POTENTIAL to dry out a beer, but most recipes compensate simply by way of malt and yeast choices.

I agree with you on Gambrinus honey malt. It is a wonderful specialty grain in a honey beer that complements and enhances honey flavor and aroma.

I think most negative reviews on honey use comes from people that add the honey at 60 minutes instead of at flameout of later.


At any rate, a honey beer should have HONEY in it! Pez.

I've put 1 to 1.5 lbs of clover honey in 5 gal batches of Brown Ale or Pale Ale at flamout and couldn't really detect it. I'm sure it depends on how good your sense of taste is (and probably the type and quality of the honey), but the majority of posters seem to report a similar phenomenon. So I bought some honey malt...

Don't misunderstand me, honey malt is great. I use it and recommend it.

However, there does seem to be an unfounded ...fear? about using honey. It is the oldest brewing adjunct, and can make tasty beer. I use raw clover or wildflower honey added at flameout.
I agree with you about honey in brown ales - it is harder to detect. It really seems to shine in wheats...at least for me.
Cheers! Pez.

I haven't seen any afraid to use honey, it's just that honey is expensive so why add it if you can't taste it?
