Fellas, if I add honey to a batch at the end of a boil, shouldn't I be lessening my water volume based on that addition to make my standard 5.25 gallons?

 

I'm reading 1 pound = ~11 ounces

On the whole, honey adds sugar. I want to say it’s only like 17% water, so unless you’re worried about fermenter volume, I’d plug it into your calculator and see where it gets you.

Yea, I agree with Ted. I honestly wouldn't worry about it too much. Though if you are concerned, I'd pull a pint of water out of your sparge and just not worry about it beyond that.

I never really worried about it.  And I never had one I really liked.  Must have been the honey
