I never tell my wife what I spend on my brewing supplies....man she would kill me. ha ha ha.

Anyway...where do you get your Blackberry honey from? I am looking for a supplier online and have found a couple, but it's horribly expensive. Bout $8.00 a pound!!!!! I'll pay it if I have to, but if there's someplace cheaper, I'd love to know.

I have a friend in Colorado who did a bulk order and I was able to get 60 lbs for $140. This isn't something he gets on a regular basis and whenever I see what I think is a good deal, I jump on it.

Nice. After much research yesterday I did find an apiary that has bulk blackberry honey (not blackberry flavored) like some places try to sell. It is pure, raw and unfiltered, just screened for large chunks. I can get 18 pounds for $55 shipped. I think that's a pretty good deal. Plus they have others like Meadowfoam, orange blossom, buckwheat, raspberry blossom, tupelo and others. So I think I have a good source now.

Im confused??? In an earlier post it was not a third pound of buckwheat, however in this post it seems it is? Can I get some clarification please? Do I need a total of three lbs of buckwheat?

Inyermouth...I am going to be ordering honey from Wayne and Kathy that own theflyingbeeranch...they only advertise on Ebay...no website. I talked to Wayne last night, and read nothing but positive comments on their products. I think 18 pounds of blackberry honey is going to cost me under $55..I think he said something like $52.50...so I am ordering from them. Hope that helps.
Dan

What I probably did was add 2/3 of a qt, or about 2 lbs, to the initial recipe, reserving 1/3 qt, or about 1 lb. or so to add at the end. It's been so long I don't remember and I'm at work and I can't look at the original recipe.

hey all. I'm almost to the point of adding the vanilla beans and I have a question. Do I need to sanitize them in anyway or does the alcohol at this point make it safe to just toss them in?

Just drop them in. Some people slice them lengthwise first.
