Recipe shows total 4 pounds honey as a late addition and then 3 pounds after cooling. Is this a total amount of four pounds? Or is it an added amount bringing the honey total to 7 pounds?

Instead of 4 pounds, I added 3 pounds, it still needs some work, I wasn't all that thrilled with it. I think lowering the extract to about 4 or 5 pounds, and changing from Crystal 120 to something like a 60 or even a 40 for a more caramel flavor.

Im gonna give it a shot in early november. Im thinking about dropping the LME, changing to a 60 and maybe adding some caramunich. I was also thinking about splitting the honey and doing a second, smaller fermentation in the secondary and then aging it. I will also be adding cinnamon and some other winter spices as a dryhop stage.

Have at it! It's all in an effort to create a braggot without having to brew a beer and a mead just to combine them both. The thing I find with beer yeast however, it will burn through the honey and leave it dry, I'm considering using something like 71B or D47.
