At flame out would that still provide enough heat to kill any contaminates that could be lurking in the honey? I just feel that some type of boil would be nice... From my understanding during the fermentation process the honey is consumed by the yeast making alcohol and that is where you loose the honey flavor, Ive read at beast you will get some flowery off flavors depending on the honey..

Honey is basically "bug free", that's why it doesn't need to be refridgerated and why it doesn't spoil

Well heres an update I brewed this recipe out and its been in the fermentor for 1.5 weeks and I just took a gravity reading and Im almost there .003 more and I will be at my mark. I drank the sample and it has just the right amount of bitter plus I used WLP300 and fermented at 72 degrees. There is some banana off flavors but not overpowering and some stronger citris notes in there. I used the honey at flame out and I can taste honey flavor in the beer as well. I have a feeling this is going to be a good beer.
