Uncapped Honey

Unread post by Alerion » October 31st, 2017, 11:15 am

I have 2 quartz of uncapped honey that I drained from a flow hive. It is very light in color and not as thick as my other honey. Should I dump it , save it and feed it to the bee's.

You can store it in the freezer and the it won't spoil. If you put it in several jars you can take out as much as you want at a time.

Will it freeze, I took it out of the flow hive thinking it might freeze and damage the flow hive comb

It doesn't really freeze it just gets really really thick like tar and it will not break glass jars
