Rookie,
Nice looking Beer ! =D>

Re: Honey Brew?

There's no real need to boil honey. Boiling will drive away a lot of flavor and aroma. A golden ale would work well with more delicate honeys like clover and alfalfa. How much would you use per 23l I'd go with 15-20% of my fermentables, unless I was shooting for a braggot, then I'd use twice that m...

You want to add honey after the primary fermentation is done or the vigorous activity will scrub off the honey flavor and aroma. You might also want to steep some honeymalt.
