Interesting to see how it turns out. Why did you add the honey?

I had a gallon of wild honey from a bee keeper in northern California and it is very cinnamon / spicy. I thought it would compliment the yeast and coriander. Also I was dying to throw it in something and this seemed the most appropriate.

Well...how'd it turn out? Recipe looks OK.

I'm about to tackle a similar brew with raw wheat! I also have a hook-up for raw honey from a beekeeper. I may post a thread once I get it brewed.

It is still kinda green but from the few I have had it tastes like just a wit beer with no flavor added from the honey . I was really expecting some cinnamon flavor from the honey but it fermented completely out. Maybe the pollen in the honey dropped out or something. Good thing I like wit beers

I just made a wit with 40% raw wheat, did a cereal mash. Still fermenting.

As far as the honey goes, you probably would have gotten more honey flavor from adding it to secondary. Not sure though, never used honey. I know byo did an article a couple issues ago. I can check that and getty back if you'd like.

EDIT: just saw this post...
