    Default Honey Bottling valve

    I have one that will not open. It is a brass one from Dadant. The water jacket is at about 110 deg it was turn on this morning. But I can't get it to open.

    Try wiping it down good with warm water...dried honey can stick it shut. A heat gun/hairdrier might help also.
    If it's the same design as the brass maxant valves, getting it damp and getting it to move might let you rotate the piston a few times to loosen it up.

    Heat gun should breakdown the crystalized honey trapped in the valve.
