I need some advice on reducing the moisture level in honey. I decided to do a final extraction, due to this hot weather coming to an end. I only pulled off about 25 Lbs, most was not capped but did not drip when I shook it. I do have a refractometer and I am measuring about 21%. (After calibration)
What I have done is to place the opened bucket in my honey house with a de-humidifier running directly in front of and just above the bucket. The honey house is a very warm and tight 8 X 12 building. From what I have read, on-line, this should do the trick.
Does anyone have an opinion or is there something differently that I should be doing ? Thanks, Peter

Preferable to dehumidify frames before extraction...........might also be faster. Would recommend testing some at the bottom of the bucket as well.......might still be too humid.

Well it worked !!! After about three days (and nights) the moisture went from 21% to 17%. I think the change in the weather, from hot and humid to cool and dry also helped. For future reference, Peter.
