If that is, in fact, water-white honey it can be very hard to find and $5 per pound wouldn't be crazy. Getting a honey that light can allow you to produce a mead that looks almost like water - a rare delicacy. Would you mind sharing the contact number for this beekeeper?

I found some honey a little cheaper. But not much. Also it was not granulated. So I am going to try tomorrow.

Wish me luck

Thanks for your help everyone

They sell mead also there. I thought it was good and very reasonable priced.

I made a mead in April using maple sap (not syrup), in place of the water. Or maybe you could use maple syrup.... although that is about $40 a gallon.

Won't know how well the sap mead will turn out for months, but my maple sap Helles Bock is quite good...IMHO
