Re: Contradiction: 12 fluid oz per pound or about 12 lbs per gallon?
Density of honey determines weight per unit volume. I've had honey that was a few ounces over 12 pounds to a gallon in a very dry year with @15% moiisture. Most honey marketed today has 17% to 19% moisture and will go a tad less than 12 pounds to a gallon. I sell by the quart which I fill to hold exactly 3 pounds of honey. I also sell squeeze bears that hold 1 pound of honey each.
