I brewed a mini-mash Honey Brown Ale kit from Austin Homebrew about three weeks ago. On saturday makes two full weeks in the secondary and i'm going to bottle it. A few days ago while taking a gravity reading (~1.016) i noticed that most of the honey taste has either been boiled off or fermented out. From reading legacy posts on HBT, i think this is a problem with the delicate flavor of honey.
Anyways, to try and recapture more of a honey taste i was considering priming this batch with Honey. Figuring out how much honey to use isn't a problem with all the carb calculators on the net. Do you think this would reclaim some of that honey flavor that was lost?
This is my first brew with liquid yeast as well. Until this batch i've only used danstar windsor ale yeast. I'm starting to get comfortable enough with brewing to experiment.
