    Default Thin honey?

    I extracted last week and noticed my honey is quite thin. Most of the honey was capped when I extracted but some of it was not. Is there any harm in consuming thin honey?

    No, absolutely no harm in consuming, but if the water content is too high it may not keep well. If left at room temp, it may ferment. Some people keep it in the refrigerator if there's any doubt of it's keep-ability. Of course that would depend on how much honey you got!!

    thin honey will not keep well it will sour or ferment,

    its good to eat if it hadent fermented yet.

    if the humidity is high it will draw in extra moisture even if honey is capped and some honeys are thinner at there best.

    moisture is the key, some are a bit thinner than others, even capped. You can get a inexpensive moisture meter on ebay. or keep it chilled as mentioned, but it will crystilize faster. you can also leave it in an open container and it will dry down on its own in a good warm environment.
