I think I have a few bottles left.
To be honest, I think it will still be spice-city, and not in a good way.

I reckon the recipe was wrong, mis-transcribed, or written down after the fact, etc.

Oh my, the bees really do take an interest in your boiling honey!
I just spent a good half hour out at the BBQ boiling up some honey for a Bochet.
1Kg Bochet Wildflower Honey, 0.5Kg Wildflower Honey, some Orange Zest and water to a Gallon. MJ05 yeast and some Yeast Hulls for Nutrient.
I boiled the honey as slow as I was able for about 30 minutes out on my BBQs wok burner as I'm forbidden to do that sort of stuff inside the house... by the time I had finished, I was surrounded by concerned bees wanting to rescue their hive. The Must is bubbling away merrily now only about a half hour after pitching the yeast dry. It can stay sitting there until It's clear.

Cheers,

Hugh
