Default Honey Powder?

50 lb Honey Powder Bulk Nutritious Pure Natural - eBay (item 220120299849 end time Oct-30-08 15:09:47 PDT)

Anyone use Honey Powder before?

Would this be good for a very fruity mead?

I just never heard of Honey Powder before.

What would 50lbs of powder equal in liquid weight?

Agreed, never heard anyone using it and I wouldn't want to be the first.

Their description of this stuff is just amazing. Apparently honey can cure anything, make you run faster and just make you a better person. Though admittedly, dehydrated honey doesn't sound bad, but I wouldn't use it for a mead. I would like to try it as a sugar replacement perhaps, but not 50 lbs of it.
Meads: Hababero and Sarrano Capiscumel, Show Mead possibly getting split and flavored, and 12 gallons of Bochet Deliciousness
Ciders:3 Ciders with differing additives TBD, Strawberry/Apple Cider
Wine: Black Cherry Vanilla Port

i like finding great deals on stuff but that jus sounds nasty, i wouldnt let my enamy ferment that
besides with that much built up hype in the description id be awefully afraid of the big let down after spending over 200$
if you really want to try it out look for a much smaller quantity to make a 1 gallon batch with

Interesting. They claim it is 100% raw honey, but a little research says 70% is about the limit for a dry powder. It also looks like it is intended for baking. I haven't tried it, but I have tried brewing with baking malt extracts and they are different from brewing extracts.

I've seen this stuff at an asian market near me. I think they manly use it as a sweetener for tea. Maybe in a couple months, when all my carboys are filled and bullk aging, I'll get bored and experiment with a 1 gallon batch.
