I have harvested honey several times this summer. All was 90% capped or more. My honey is very light in color and kind of runny. It is all measuring 18-19% moisture. Even on frames that were 100% capped for over a month did not measure lower than 18%.
Why does my capped honey measure above 18%?
Also, will it keep all year being close to 19%? I have conflicting info on moisture percent and fermenting. One article really wanted the honey below 17%. Other say below 20% will keep forever.
I have also read that honey will draw moisture yet when I leave some in a bowl over night it gets really thick like it is drying out.
For honey that is high in moisture, which is better, in the fridge or in the freezer?
Questions questions…I am just glad I have honey this year to even have honey questions 3.5 gallons of the liquid gold so far
