    Cooked up my recently sourced local honey from a beek up near Ryde. Got two varieties but for the bochet I'm using the darker honey.

    All the honey I tried were amazing, the lighter one I bought was less sweet, and very light on the palate, delicious though and quite fragrant. The darker one I used in this recipe was all molasses, golden syrup, raisins and so on. Boiled it for half an hour and decided to stop where I was.

    Used 2.1kg honey, fermenting with Mangrove Jacks M05 yeast or will be when the honey water chills enough to pitch it. I think it's going to taste amazing but I'll let you know in about 3 months time!

    Photos in order:

    1. Before heating/boiling
    2. As it got up to the boil
    3. 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes boil tests
    4. At 30 minutes when I decided to turn off the heat.

    Yeast pitched and the greedy bastards are already filling their boots on the sugars.

    I'll tell you in 3 - 6 months! (probably closer to 3 months if my lack of patience gets the better of me)

    I haven't done one, yet, but the couple I've had have been extraordinary. Looking forward to hearing!

    I think they are one of my favorites and also our best seller.
    As soon as people try it its like wow a lighter more palatable muscat or port
