Default Scottish 80 / - from Morebeer where is the honey?

My three kits I just ordered came in and I am wondering if the honey is mixed in with the LME? I didn't open it up, but I thought I wouldn't be able to miss 1/2 a pound of honey. If anyone has bought this kit please help me out here!

I just looked at the website. Looks like your beer is an extract brew with steeping grains. I'm guessing the honey refers to Honey Malt, vice actual honey.

I've never put honey in a Scottish export. I've never seen a recipe for one that contains honey. I'm guessing you're not going to get honey.

Most of the names associated with grains only refer to color, i.e., "honey" and "chocolate" grains are simply yellow-amber and dark brown, respectively.

Generally, this is true. But honey malt has an unmistakeable aroma of, well, honey!

you want some slight sweetness in your scotch 80. the honey will dry it out too far. no good.

+1 on honey malt. Great in an export 80.

Aww, you mean my oatmeal stout with the chocolate grain isn't going to come out tasting like a chocolate-coated granola bar?
