Default Twisted Enkel Blonde: second brew

Hey all, it's my second brew in the fermenter and I had a few questions.

Boil went off without a hitch, used a smack pack of white labs Canadian/Belgian ale yeast and fermentation has been aggressive. Last night I pasteurized and added about 5 ounces of clover honey, which I'm hoping will lend a nice crispness and a little more warmth from the small bump in alcohol content. I was wondering if there is a "golden ratio" brewers can use to determine how much honey is appropriate in a batch without being cloyingly dry. Any suggestions? I can post recipe later, but now it's time to get out to work. Cheers!

Wyeast Canadian/Belgian Yeast.

Amounts copied and pasted from my Beersmith entry, though theres a more than good chance that im not the first person to brew this beer

Fermentation is slowing down now, moved it to a slightly warmer spot in the apartment to get some more of those yummy "belgiany" flavors, fementing temp is at 72F currently. next thursday ill move it to secondary and wait till most of my previous batch is gone and i can reclaim some of those bottles to bottle this one.
