Have you looked at how that will work out with the attenuation of that yeast. It might come out a little sweet.

I very much dislike any thing fermented with honey, but other than that it looks good.

It should work out(attenuation)...I have only brewed with honey once. It did give the beer a long set time before it was good(1 year). Do you have any suggestion for a substitute?

If you're looking for a honey taste in beer, honey malt is a good substitute. It's an adjunct

Honey malt doesn't really taste like honey. It does impart an intense sweetess to the beer, kinda like a very intense munich flavor. I use it a lot. And I don't like honey beers.

Honey malt has to be mashed. It doesn't have much diastatic power so it needs another malt to convert it. You don;t need much so don't go overboard.

Since this isn't a beer, the honey will be great. Honey fermented with apple juice is actually classed as a cyser, a kind of apple mead, or cider mead hybrid. This should be quite mild, since you only have 1.5 lbs of honey for 5 gallons of juice. You could easily increase the honey to 5 lbs (1lb per gallon) and it still won't be overly sweet. With the spices, it should even have a bit of apple pie kinda flavor. Keep us informed!

Add the honey at flame out. That way you avoid boiling off the honey aromatics

Agreed, for me the best part about honey in cyser is in the aroma: make sure to add after flameout!
