Hello, I am making a Ginger Ale from this Extract Recipe (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f76/ging...ml#post2987412
and I have a question regarding the honey. The recipe calls for 3lbs of honey added at 60 mins, however the original poster has mentioned that he adds all the honey at flameout (0 mins).
Now, I know that the sugars in the honey are needed for the fermentation, since there is only .5 lb of Light Dry Extract only 1lb of liquid pale extract -- so I am guessing the sugar in the honey is absolutely necessary. Does it really matter when I add the honey? I heard that if you add it to the boil, it will lose the flavor. I have also heard of some people adding honey directly to the fermenter after fermentation is complete? What are the pros/cons and what should I do with this recipe I am going to brew on Saturday? What does it mean to add honey at flameout? (probably obvious, but right before I chill the wort?)
Also, the recipe states it's for a partial boil -- since I am doing a full boil, does that change any of the ingredients in the recipe?
Thanks for all of your advice.
