No futuristic facility that I know of. However a 5gal pail isn't exactly 5gal. It can be more like 5.4-5.75 gal. And at 12lbs/gal, that's closer to 70#. Plus I know it's a lower moisture because it has a haze due to crystals.

But no, I probably didn't get an extra 10# from moisture alone. So I guesstimated the $4/lb value.

Back to the thread, DutchGold describes some of their honeys as being imported or blends. But the buckwheat they sell sounds tempting.

Dutch gold honey is good, their "organic honey" is imported from Brazil, and their "Bakers special" is a blend of wildflower and others honeys that they don't specify. I suspect it's the bottom of the barrels of all of the other varieties mixed together so it varies, that may be why they arent specific on the blend.

They do sell only true source honey (http://www.truesourcehoney.com/) so you should be able to trust it isn't mixed with hfcs or any of the other crap that's been imported to look like honey.

Another site I'm contemplating ordering from is eBeeHoney.com, they seem to have a great selection of raw honey and relatively decent pricing.

Thinking about trying to make a one gallon batch of JOAM and I have a bunch of questions.I'll ask just one and maybe the rest will be answered......starting from the bottling...Once in a bottle how long before it's ready to drink?

I really started to enjoy mine right a 7 months. Sone say it us drinkable at 3. Which it is but drinkable is all I would describe it as. Others say right at 6 months is the magic number.

Wow... Good posts on this thread!


The warning on the video was not adequate though!
Now I need to watch more and start sourcing ingredients!
Geez this hobby is addictive!
