I am considering the purchase of a heated bottling tank. I was recently talking to a beekeeper who has a heated bottling tank. He said the tank heats it to 125 degrees, and it kills any yeasts and retards the crystalization of the honey. Up until now, I have been bottling honey at room temperature, and I was impressed by the time savings the heated bottling tank could provide.
I have been marketing my honey as raw honey. How hot can you heat honey and still call it raw? If 125 is too hot to call it raw, even if I only heat it to 110, it will still bottle much faster than room temp honey from a 5 gallon bucket with a honey gate.
