Re: How do you Liquify Granulated honey 5 gallon buckets
From what is said here & elsewhere, the less time it takes to warm & cool honey, the less any damage occurs. A thermostatically controlled box, with ~150 watts of HEAT ( from incandescent bulbs) "does the job" on a 5 Gal bucket in about 24-36 hours. CF & LED bulbs give off less heat actual heat, so more are required. Once the heat reaches whatever desired temp, rapidly "cooling" it (back to ~95*) does little damage (darkening), yet allows plenty of "flow" for re-bottling.
After 40 years of beekeeping, I've come to realize that the bees can fix most of my mistakes.
