I took a few supers off and extracted a couple of days ago - very early in this part of the country. The honey is almost water white and extra sweet - but DENSE. Refractometer read 15 - 16% and the air bubbles are not rising much at all - is there such a thing as too dry honey??

Stays on your peanut butter sammich better that way :)

Had some checking in at 14% a couple of years ago. Kind of a pain pouring but good none the less. Nothing to worry about, enjoy.......

Suggest that you check the calibration of that refractometer. If the honey is a dense as you say then it is likely 14% or lower. 16% is very pourable at room temp.

Sure, like too much fun, or a car too fast, honey too thick and rich! Are you kidding me? I would be happy to eliminate your problem. Do you need my shipping address? I won't even charge you to take it off your hands. Enjoy!

I'm with you on that. I use the honey that crystallized in its bottle, or the raw honey that sets up right away on my sammiches so they don't make a mess in their container before i eat them.

Thanks everyone. An old time local tells me it's black locust. I intend to do all the culinary things everyone has suggested.
Ain't this a great forum?
