The honey will dry it out, but I think there are cheaper ways to do it than a pound of honey. Id probably just go with a lb of table sugar and mash lower.

Slowly dump 3-4 in a growler, let the foam drop and drink them a couple of hours later. Its a pain in the ass, but better than dumping.

Should I add adjuncts that have been gelatinized in a cereal mash with my grains when calculating strike water? Given that they are gelatinized, I doubt they will absorb more water.
