Well, Mike and I bottled up half of the honey wheat ale last night and racked the other half onto a gallon of honey water goodness (1.5 pounds of honey in one gallon of water heated at 170F for 30 minutes -cooled to fermentation temperatures).
These photos will tell a better story:

In two weeks, we’ll know how the original beer came out. In 4 weeks (and many weeks after that) we’ll see how the experiment came out.
