comment K'shaim Shenichnas L'Bris Kain Yikones L'Torah L'Chupa U'Lmaasim Tovim: why that order?
The source of this "blessing" is a gemara in Shabbat 137b - toratemetfreeware.com/online/f_00879.html#HtmpReportNum0271_L2 - העומדים אומרים כשם שנכנס לברית כך יכנס לתורה לחופה ולמע''ט

comment Adding Honey to Wine and Rules of Yayin Nesach
See the end of the Kitzur and the Rambam I quotes: Once yayin-Nesech, always Yayin Nesech. אִם נַעֲשָׂה מִסְּתָם יֵינָם, לְעוֹלָם הוּא בְּאִסּוּרוֹ. (Both vinegar [from wine] and beer [from wine] cannot become Yayin Nesech.)
