So we just bought a new place a few months ago and I am getting ready to setup a new bottling room. Thoughts are drums of honey will stay out of the room and I will have a hotbox just on the other side of the wall. In the past I have heated the drums of honey to uncrystalize using radiant hot water from the floor. We don't have a boiler at the new place but I would still like to use the floor radiant heat.
So I have been thinking about buying a 20 gallon hotwater heater and using that with temp set at 140 and just recirculate the water as opposed to buying a boiler. Has anyone used a standard hotwater heater for warming their honey?
