    1.020-1.040, depends on your taste and the style and the kind of honey you use and how intense

    Iodine test as mentioned above, sounds like they werent ripe when picked so this test is even
    more important, you have to get the right iodine also, not just the stuff you put on your
    fingers when you...

    Get some potassium metabisulfite for killing bacteria, freezing wont do anything to the bad
