Re: Honey bottler
I have two 25 gallon/300lb Maxant Bottling Tanks. I love them. Especially the new dripless spout. I like the old thermometer better. It's easiert to read than the new one.
I only have heat on it when I am going to use it. Though I will have it set low over night so it doesn't take so long to get up to temp the next morning.
I warm my honey to 140 degrees in the one tank, so I can liquify what is crystalized and strain the honey thru a nylon cloth. Then the honey goes into the other tank for bottling at 110 degrees.
I unplug the tanks when not in use. I haven't installed the new heat controllers yet. Maybe they will completely shut off when turned down all the way. Pulliung the plug gaurantees no heat.
