Re: water in honey
Reducing moisture content of high moisture content honey is a long held practice in the commercial beekeeping community. What would you have someone w/ 5 barrels of 20% moisture content honey do? Dump it or reduce moisture by artificial means?

Many people have Hot Rooms w/ fans and dehumidifiers in them to help dry down the honey before extracting.
