Mark, I run at a lot less temp than that and have no problem removing most crystals. Yea its faster at 130, but drums held at 110 do just fine. never had an issue getting it to liquefy at 110. some takes a bit longer.
There are probably a lot of crystal left, but it flows bottles and stores fine. Maybe differnt types of honeys, but never had to run up higher unless makeing creamed honey.
Yes, but I don't liquify barrels. I avoid using them. What I was writing about was liquifying honey for bottling. Batches of 20 gallons at a time. I serll direct to stores and don't want it crystalizing on the shelf. I have tried lower temps and found it to crystalize.
