Hey all... I am going to be brewing yuri's thunderstruck ale for the fall season.. and i as thinking of adding a small amount of honey to it.. i was wondering if this would bring out some sweetness or would this completely destroy the whole thing..also if i was to add this would i do it in the boil if so at what point / time frame

thanks for your help

If you are looking at adding sweetness, you might also try lactose which is a non-fermentable sugar.

Here is some information on using honey in beer.

Don't bother with honey. Use more crystal malt or maybe some honey malt.

...or brew it as is and adjust from there by backsweetening with lactose or Splenda...
