    I took some early honey just to get it out of the hive . I'm not sure that it is dry enough (wasn't all capped). Would putting it in a freezer help to dry it out any? Anyone have an opinion?

    If it's open to the air in some way and it's a frost free freezer, I think it will dry some. I would worry about the condensation when you thaw it back out, undoing all your work. That and picking up some food flavors would worry me.

    A better system is to put it in a closet that has a dehumidifier in it. As long as the humidity is below 18% or so you can just stack up supers with a board or something to make a gap to let the air circulate and turn on a fan in the room. If your humdity is higher this may be counterproductive.

    Also, according to the books, as long as you keep it < 52 F it won't ferment.
