We made a ham for the holidays and it came with a sugar spice packet for glazing. We don't like glazed ham and as SWMBO was about to toss it, I suddenly thought "I could ferment that". So I have a 8 oz packet with the ingredients listed as: Brown Sugar, sugar, spices, and honey powder (Maltodextrin, honey). Now I was thinking of a simple bock recipe for the base beer and add the sugar/spice packet as a late addition to the boil. Question: 1) Has anyone tried using this glaze packet for brewing? 2) Should I up the IBU's to balance the maltodextrin sweetness? 3) What the heck is Honey powder?
