Hahaha... great input guys! Saved me from probably a mistake. Maybe I should get a small jar
and add just a couple oz. per gallon with other honeys? Luckily I've found a few places locally
to get a go...

I think I may get a 3lb jar and make a 1 gallon batch. If it tastes a little off early on, I'll
