Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Honey for Priming
« on: February 04, 2010, 07:31:48 PM »
Well thanks everyone so far for the input, definitely have some options try!  As to the question of why.  The expense of it doesn't matter, all of the money I spent on crap to brew with far exceeds any savings I would ever hope to have making my own beer, and second I think there is the possibility for some nice additional notes in both flavor and aroma fro the honey, depending on the honey I think.  Say an orange blossom leaving behind some of the great floral notes.  That's kind of what I am looking for and there is only one way to find out, I gotta give it a try.

Yeast and Fermentation / Honey for Priming

First I apologize if this was ever on here before, but I am new on the forum and don't think I am quite used to the search function and how to effectively search!

My favorite brew is a honey amber I do, I would love to bottle condition the beer using the honey I use as the priming sugar instead of regular priming sugar, want to see how it comes out.  Anyone got any good insight into the conversion on how much priming sugar to use per 5 or10 gallons versus now using honey, and second anyone have any advice on methods for adding in the honey for priming given the delicate nature of the brew at that point?  Perhaps boiling it up in some water like priming sugar or might that just end up evaporating the good flavors in the honey?  Any input appreciated, thinking about it makes me salivate and I want to give it a shot but want to avoid 5 cases of exploding bottles!
