creamed honey

  1. Everything Honey
    Hi there, I am a first-year beekeeper and doing a course on beekeeping and am stuck on a question. I have read so many posts all over the internet about how to make creamed honey, but I cannot find any information as to WHY a starter is required. I get that a starter is a batch of creamed honey...

    Hi guys, first time posting here. I want to get a really good honey creamer, semi professional. I have my eyes set on some equipment from Normit in Slovakia, but wanted to know if anyone has had experience buying and using this brand for equipment quality and customer service. Do you know any...

    I jarred up some creamed honey this year as i have done for several years in the past. There is an ugly frosting showing up that I think is just some entrained air causing the crystals to look different but i wanted to check here first. In one case, it almost seems to have "grown". The honey was...

    Hello! I am trying to find out how to make creamed honey so that it's white. So far, I have followed the usual Dyce process, but the resulting honey is dark. I have tried various temperatures too. The original honey, non-creamed, is dark too, of course. But would different level of...
  5. Marketing Forum
    If you have offered creamed honey alongside standard honey, did it sell well? And did it sell for a premium? When in Europe I saw a lot of creamed honey for sale, but see very little of it here in the USA. I am concerned that most consumers here would take one look and assume it is old and...

    Anyone know if there is a minimum capacity for using the Maxant blender mixer for creaming honey. I have the 42 gal maxant honey tank. Want to make smaller batches of creamed in it. Maxant reply was inconclusive

    What is the overall benefit for using a Maxant Creamer with a stirrer? I have heard that keeping the honey in a creamer for 2 weeks and stirring intermittently makes the honey nice and soft. Is there any truth to this? If so, how do you bottle after the 2 week period. I assume it won't run after...

    I made my first batch of creamed honey and filled into 500 g glass jars on day 2. I noticed today, 10 days after mixing, that the top 1inch of the glass jars have a band of space between the glass and the creamed honey. You can follow this 'line' around the jar. While the honey looks fine, I am...

    I am in the process of creating creamed honey. I have read the directions but have a question. Has anyone made it with colder temperatures? Like 35 degrees? Does it hurt it to use colder temperatures? Thank you for your replys.

    I am starting to make creamed honey in larger quantities to keep up with demand. It goes a lot quicker if we are lucky enough to have the temps in the mid 50's. Has anyone tried using a fridge style wine cooler to maintain the temp. It looks like they can be set for a range from the low 50's-...

    From time to time, someone asks how to make creamed honey. By this, I mean honey that is intentionally crystallized so it has a very fine, creamy grain. (I'm not talking about honey butter, meaning liquid honey + butter blended together into a spreadable mixture.) I found a beautifully made...
