Not a stupid question at all. If you add the honey at flame out, you'll be adding it at the end of the boil. This will raise the honey to pasturization temps, but will also destroy a lot of honey flavor, and is not necessary if its good clean honey. Mead (good mead) is never pasturized, and there is no problem with not pasturizing in that case. I would add the honey to your sanitized fermenter, and rack on top of that, swirling the wort as you add it to incorporate the honey

just cheap generic honey that you find in the supermarket. you won't really taste the honey as it's a small amount and there are a lot of other flavors going on. to make honey easier to pour I put the bottle of honey in a sink of hot water.. just before adding I spray the bottle with starsan

fantastic... advice. So heat it in the container as i would any LME... cool. Pour it into the Primary before racking my chilled wort...

Thanks. I have a technique to follow here...

Just kegged it yesterday... great tasting beer.. malty/roasty a bit much on the honey flavor... i'm thinking this will melow out with some time. The color was "ruby" red but had a tint.. I think i can blame that on my lame attempt at a fly sparge that took all of 15 minutes to complete. (a bit fast).

I will however play with this a bit in my new manifold based mash tun...

Thanks i'll enjoy this one well into the playoffs!

glad you like it... that's the nice thing about this recipe, even if you screw it up, it turns out to be a tasty beer. a friend got a horrible crush from a brew store near him. it didn't turn out red, but it did turn out to be a heck of a pale ale.

Just Made this up today as a Christmas present for my FIL. He is a fan of reds so I thought this would be right up his alley. I subbed the caraaroma for C120 and used WLP051 Cali 5 from a slurry at the LHBS, lookin' quite dark. Boy does have a nice dark red hue!

Keep you all posted,

Cheers!

I fermented this baby at 66 F and for someone who likes the opposite (very dry and hoppy) this is a great brew. I made it for my FIL I only pray he likes it!

I think the addition of Melanoidin makes all the difference. (Note: I subbed out the caraaroma for C 120)

Cheers to the OP!

Thinking about brewing this...

What would you think about using a bit of roasted malt, and maybe a different yeast?
