I am thinking of steeping crushed comb that is already in muslin in a 5 litre kilner jar and doing vodka to make honey liquor. Has anyone tried this?

No I haven’t, but that sounds good! Are you adding anything else? How long do you leave it? What else do I need to know to try it myself?

more than 20, less than 100.
Someone did honey vodka a few years ago. I think it was just a case of soaking the cappings in the vodka.

Too many - but not nearly enough

I did it some time ago, it was definitely more of a liqueur than a flavoured vodka, very sweet and a bit sickly so we had to dilute it a bit.

With more vodka

I was wondering about it being sickly.
