Re: weight of honey
The thing about honey is that it is not uniform. There are many different types of honey and they all weigh different amounts per volume so the only real way to sell it is by volume.... and the only real way to know how much honey to add to a mead recipe is to actually weigh out the honey! Yup, grab a scale and weigh out exactly what you need. That said, I have never made mead. 16 oz of honey aka one pound jar... is volume not weight.
If you take a measuring cup and put 8 oz of flour, in one 8 oz of sugar in another and 8 oz of honey in another... all will weight differently... volume, not weight.
