    How much volume is added from honey?

    Hello! First of all I just want to say that I suck at math. I'd be more than happy if someone would correct any potential faults in my calculations/reasoning. Also, sorry for my bad england. As I said, math isn't my thing and english isn't my first language . So, a little TL;DR for y'all: 1...
