honey is too wet- how long will it last before fermenting? what should we do with it?
So my husband and I just extracted 40 lbs of honey last night - our second harvest this year. The problem is, it's been such a humid, rainy season, the moisture level hardly went down after 2 weeks of placing a dehumidifier in a small room with the mostly capped frames. The dehumidifier isn't ours- we're borrowing it (and now need to return it), and since I had to rent the extractor from the local bee club, we were on a time crunch.
Now we have 40 lbs of runny honey. It's hovering around 20% moisture. What should we do? Would you sell honey this wet? (maybe at a discount with a disclaimer?). Would you just give it away to friends/family and tell them to use it up in the next few months? Find some homebrewers to buy it as is for mead?
