What’s your best ways for heating honey in 10/20 litre buckets?

 

And till what temp do you still consider it raw?

 

And are you finding your forescasts accurately predicted a year later? 

 

This was 12+ when tested last year hoping for 17 now. 

 

Looking forward to opinions as we’ll all have different ways of doing this.

Now I'm no expert in batching honey, but I can certainly tell you a few things about forecasting.

 

Generally speaking, most people find the predictions from a forecast to be satisfactory. Anecdotally this means the NPA/UMF predictions are within a few points over the period of a couple of years. These forecasts are made on the basis of fixed storage conditions though, which means constant temperature (and other conditions). Any temperature changes between your initial round of testing and subsequent retesting a year or two later can give rise to discrepancies between the predicted values and actual values.
