Honey Kolsch

Brewed this honey beer today. I've tried brewing with honey a number of times in the past but almost invariably the beers did not turn out to offer the slightest hint of honey. Even the braggot I made with 50% of the fermentables coming from honey, 3kg from memory, didn't. That one turned out to be pretty awful actually though I suspect it may have become infected as I added the honey to the fermenter. I'm hoping the lightness of the Kolsch style in this one will let the honey shine through.

Recipe courtesy of Brew Your Own;

3,300g Maris Otter
480g Wheat
149g Cara-pils
121g Acidulated malt
480g Devon honey (added at flame out)
26g Pacifica (90 mins)
34g Pacifica (10 mins)
WLP029 German Ale/Kolsch yeast

1.050 OG
24 IBU
7 EBC
67degC mash

Brew day went smoothly and it's all tucked up in my brew fridge at 18.5degC. Will update on the success or otherwise when it's done.
