I was gifted a gallon of honey. It was originally in a rusty 60# tin and completely crystallized and had to be heated to reliquify it. I don't know how old it is, but judging by the tin it's pretty old. It smells ok and tastes ok except for maybe a slight tinny taste, which may be real or imagined. I eat a lot of honey, brew a few batches with honey per year, and make a few melomels, cysers, pyments, and braggot. Any thoughts on using this old honey? Would you brew with it?
Absolutely! I made an excellent Kiwi Mead with honey that sounds just like what you described.
