I made a honey ale recently which resulted in a beer with a rather bitter/sour(?) taste instead of the honey finish I was hoping for.
Since I added the honey just before the yeast I was wondering if it could be that all the sugar in the honey actually got processed by the yeast leaving only the other parts in the beer thus resulting in the described flavour or at least for the "sour" part. Since I never made this recipe without honey before, I do not know exactly how it tastes without honey.
Could this be the reason? To avoid this, I guess I'd have to add the honey later?
