My question or comment deals with the honey. There appear to be two schools of thought on the matter. One is to add it to the boil, essentially using it as a sugar. The second, is to add it to the fermenter. This is where I would like some input. How does one do that. I know that I must purify the honey (boil it with 1/2 honey & 1/2 water at 180 degrees for 60 minutes), but, how do I add it to the fermenter? Do I just pour it in, or, is there some other method, i.e., move the fermenting beer to a bucket add the honey/water and return it to the carboy? Any comments would be appreciated.
