## weight of honey

Can someone help me with the weights of honey. I am wanting to get labels to put on jars. What is the weight of a pint jar? What is the weight of a quart jar? Your help is appreciated.

The label on the last jar of honey that i purchased says:

"Honey is sold by weight. 1 Cup = 12 oz."

I needed to research this for my mead.
The recipe calls for 10 lbs. which equals 13 1/3 cups.

Hope this helps.

A pint is 1.5#, a quart is 3#. I would suggest purchasing a scale so you know how full to make the jar to equal those weights.

Just curiously wondering how many people sell a 16oz. jar of honey as 1#. Also how many are calculating 40#s in a full 5 gallon bucket?

Honey is heavier than water and is sold by weight here.

Sold by weight here too. A 5 gal pail is 60#, I try not to sell too many of them. They are too heavy for me.

6. I believe that liquid honey has to be sold by weight, legally. But comb honey does not. So, get a scale and see how much honey you can get into a pint or quart jar and get labels made. But don't leave alot of air space between the honey and the lid. Your customers will like it better if they aren't buying air.

How many full 5 gallon buckets of honey can I buy from you at 40lbs? I'll pay you \$80.00 per each.
