Yes, you can use saflager with this brew.

Try specialty food shops for your honey such as a big delicatessen style shop. Or one of the big greengrocers that have a range of specialty goods. Health food shops often carry a good range too. Happy shopping.

Heya
Did this as per your recipe withbut with 250 g strawberry jam - French brand found in supermarkets (Saint Dalfour) real fruit - no prservatives etc etc. - in Primary. After brewing only 8 kits but having done it 3 times with jam - I would put the jam in secondary now - hope this helps - . This would extend fermentation though. You should read threads about pectin. I just boilded the jam with 300ml of water for 5 minutes. It tasted great after a couple of months , one of my more succesful brewers. Sunday Brewer.

Bretto,

Saflager should work well with the Blonde. It is a lovely crisp style beer well suited to to replacing those lost bodily fluids after mowing the lawn in summer.

I don't know that I'd go with adding the honey though. What I'd go for with the honey is a can of cCascade Mahogany Porter, Ikg of Dark dry malt and 1 kg of honey. This will give you a nice honey Porter to sit down and contemplate the world with in early spring.
