As a small time marketer of unfiltered local honey, I have issues with granulation. Most of my crop is bottled in quart and pint jars so when they start granulating all I need to do is warm them up or set them out in the sun for a couple hours and the granules dissolve.
However, I also bottle some in no-drip squeeze bottles which are plastic. These bottles seem to be able to tolerate very little heating before causing deformation of the plastic, rendering them unmarketable.
So I have a couple questions and concepts to run by the forum to get your thoughts.
What would be a good way to keep this honey warm to keep it from granulating to begin with?
How warm does it need to be to keep it from granulating indefinitely?
I have one idea. A while back, I picked up a mini fridge with a solid state (Peltier Effect) cooler. It has a bad circuit board which renders it useless without a power supply and controlling circuitry. The Peltier Effect is reversible, so I can use the fridge as a low temperature oven (or incubator). Of course the same thing could be done with a lightbulb and a thermostat. The thermostat can be had from Amazon or any number of sources.
Does this have a reasonable probability of working?
The purpose is to warm the plastic bottles but keep from deforming them.
