I really don't know, as I've never added it at bottling. I used 2lbs of orange blossom honey in mine, and it retained a nice, kind of floral flavor.

How much honey are we talking here? You wouldn't want to add like a pound at bottling....honey ferments almost completely, so at best you're looking at overcarbination. At worst, bottle bombs.

I add it at 15-20 mins. left in the boil, just 'cause I'm afraid of it all sinking to the bottom. I want to make sure it's mixed well. I bet if you add it at flame out and stir well, you'd be fine.

As for taste, it depends on how much honey you're adding. It will tend to make a beer drier. I usually add a pound, but I know others have used 2 or 3 lbs. If I wanted a really pronounced honey flavor, I think I'd do both - add it at boil and use it for priming!

I like honey in the primary, sometimes near the end of fermentation. I don't like honey in the kettle.

Why? What differences do you notice?

The only reason I add it it flameout is for pastuerization. I understand that it should already be sterile, but it's hard to know how the stuff has been handled.
