You can still feed it to the bees. I would jug off the part that is liquid now and then add boiling water and stir every time you need more. Continue until it is gone. Make sure that the liquid you add is stirred until no more will dissolve. You want a 3:5 solution to keep it from fermenting. If you see foam on top, add a a few tablespoons of unscented household bleach
